STERIS Isomedix Services is pleased to offer the Gamma Engineering Run program at its Libertyville North, IL facility. This unique program allows customers to study the effects of the gamma process on product components or packaging, and is ideal for evaluating material compatibility prior to beginning a full scale new product development project.
Engineering runs expose product to a standard gamma irradiation cycle with a typical dose range used for medical device processing. The service is performed throughout the week and customers may submit multiple boxes per run.
"The gamma engineering run program provides a simple, cost-effective method to study the effects of gamma irradiation at the earliest stages of product development," comments Sarah Crowl, product manager for STERIS Isomedix Services.
STERIS Isomedix Services also offers weekly Ethylene Oxide Engineering Runs through their Minneapolis, Minnesota facility.
