sterilization of implants and instruments

Implantable orthopedic devices have an extensive history with gamma irradiation. This presentation will compare gamma to x-ray, describe similarities and differences, showcase the benefits of adding x-ray sterilization, and discuss considerations in validation and transfers from one radiation technology to another. We’ll also outline why x-ray is a viable alternative to gamma processing by ensuring long-term processing capacity while providing the same level of product assurance.
