Sterile Barrier Packaging: The Impact of Sterilization Modalities

As innovation in product development continues in the medical device space, packaging and sterility assurance are also being viewed through an innovative lens. Environmental concerns, cost savings, and speed to market have led medical device manufacturers to research and better understand various sterilization modalities. The relationship between sterile packaging materials and sterilization methods is complex. This webinar is meant to help engineers responsible for sterile packaging better understand the relationship between the two. In this webinar, you will receive a high-level overview of Ethylene Oxide (EO), Irradiation, and Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide (VHP) sterilization methods. Each method will be broken down into critical parameters that impact packaging materials and processes. Understanding these parameters will be useful in minimizing risk during design verifications, addressing critical sterilization parameter changes, and developing effective, high-quality, efficient packaging designs that stand up to the test of time.

During this free 60-minute webcast, you will learn more about:

  • A high-level understanding of Ethylene Oxide (EO), Irradiation and Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide (VHP) sterilization methods
  • The critical sterilization parameters that impact packaging material selection, packaging design verification and manufacturing processes
  • About packaging material selection and preventative measures to ensure compatibility with multiple sterilization modalities
  • How to address packaging risk when critical sterilization parameters change
