PDA Midwest/Missouri Valley Joint FREE Virtual Event:

Sterilization Conversion

The PDA Midwest and the Missouri Valley Chapters are pleased to present two speakers for our August 2024 event to focus on topics related to the medical device sterilization conversions to X-Ray sterilization from Gamma sterilization.


Betty Howard, Senior Radiation Sterilization Manager, Steris Corporation

Title: Gamma to X-ray Conversions for sterilization of Healthcare Products

Abstract: Sterilization of healthcare products are well documented with Radiation Technologies (Gamma X-ray and E Beam). Significant guidance is available in published standards, seminars and other publications that make validation of dose, and in most cases easy to document and support. The most widely used historically has been gamma with a smaller percentage of E Beam. As processing capacity needs grow and assurance of supplies of critical products are under pressure, X-ray has become a greater consideration. X-ray has long been an option, but access globally was not always available. As availability is growing, we will discuss why X-ray is a viable alternative or addition to a sterilization portfolio, show how gamma and X-ray compare (similarities and differences), and the basics of how converting from gamma to X-ray is achieved.


Dr. Samuel Dorey, Principal Scientist, Materials & Irradiations Product Development, Sartorius

Florent Kuntz, Strategic Development Manager, Aerial

Title: X-Ray Sterilization Conversions

Abstract: Case study presentation of a Gamma to X-Ray for sterilization conversion, which discusses testing performed, Dtser, Dmax, activation, dosimetry and Monte Carlo simulation.
