The sterilization of products or components is achieved through a variety of methods. This webinar will cover the common methods of sterilization such as saturated steam, radiation, dry heat, ethylene oxide, the terminology and the critical parameters associated with each. In addition, this webinar will also highlight recent deficiencies cited by the FDA regarding sterilization methods and their validation.
This webinar will review the basic expectations for the most common forms of sterilization. The typical variables that need to be controlled for each will be reviewed along with the common deficiencies cited for each. Pros and cons for each method will be highlighted along with common expectations for how to qualify these various methods. This webinar provides a general oversight as to what each method involves but does not get into the specifics for determining sterility assurance levels. It will cover some general sterilization terminology that the attendees should be familiar with.
