Event Description

Course "Validating Radiation Sterilization for Medical Products" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.


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

Why should you attend?

"Do it right the first time", choose the most functional and radiation resistant materials for your medical device instead of going through the post launch cycle of product revisions. Also learn the basis for choosing the optimum sterilization modality based on materials, product design, bioburden, and logistics.

Learn how to "think like a molecule" and plan and design around radiation induced changes in materials qualities (color, odor, brittleness). How to avoid the materials that are "APT" to fail.
