Validating Radiation Sterilization for Medical Products (Schiller Park, United States - March 16-17, 2017) - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Validating Radiation Sterilization for Medical Products" conference to their offering.

Review of basic polymer chemistry and changes in polymer characteristics can be anticipated and designed for. Learn how to plan for post radiation resistance and lifetime functionality. All radiation modalities (gamma, e-beam, x-ray) will be reviewed for a basic understanding of the sterilization process and the influences that product design and assembly can have on success.

The Following Subjects will be Covered in Detail:

  • Materials Guidances - AAMI TIR # 17, ASTM
  • Sterilization validation and Bioburden
  • Shelf Life Test Methods - Accelerated Aging design
  • Test Design
  • Product Design
  • The influences of product assembly (molding, automation, etc.)'
  • Material selection and post irradiation degradation
  • Regulatory Guidances - AAMI/ISO 11137, TIR #17
  • Packaging Design and Materials
  • Biological Polymers - Tissue, Serum

Learn How To:

  • Identify the materials that perform best upon radiation
  • Keep color and odor out of your irradiated products
  • Enhance product and packaging designs to take advantage of radiation

Who Should Attend:

  • Medical product design Management and Engineers
  • Sterilization Experts
  • Quality Management and Engineers
  • Regulatory Affairs
  • Project Managers
  • Purchasing and Supply Chain Managers
  • Staff evaluating risk, safety, and effectiveness
  • R&D Staff engineering and lab personnel
  • Process Engineers
  • Packaging Engineers
  • Materials Engineers
  • Manufacturing Engineers
