Sterilization Science Services
World-Class Applied Research for Gamma Sterilization
At Nordion’s Gamma Centre of Excellence (GCE), we collaborate with companies like yours to determine gamma compatibility of materials and to develop highly effective gamma processes. Our chemistry and physicist experts understand the challenge you face to sterilize your medical device, improve the properties of your polymer product or improve the safety of your food product.
We look forward to sharing our knowledge and experience with you in a collaboration that fosters effective use of gamma irradiation for your product. Come to our first-class chemistry and physicist experts with a challenging material and you’ll walk away with a process that allows for gamma sterilization.
- Does your product have a maximum dose constraint? We collaborate with you to design processes around challenging materials. The solution could be developing a specific approach to irradiate the material; the solution could be carrying out a foundational study to reduce the dose requirement.
- Unsure if your product is gamma compatible? We collaborate with you to determine the gamma compatibility of any challenging material.
- Want to change the property of a product? Whether your goal is to change the color of a material or change the mechanical properties of a material, we look forward to a collaborative and rewarding partnership.
At Nordion's GCE, we maintain calibrated research irradiators for small-scale sample testing and a full-scale irradiator. Time allocated for research is a complimentary gamma irradiation service offered to our partners.
