Production irradiators are extremely robust machines and for this reason many irradiators currently operating in the field are over 20 years old. With recently revised safety standards and the development of enhanced parts and components, updating your irradiator may help you better protect your workers and avoid production downtime and revenue loss.
As a global expert in the design, construction and maintenance of commercial gamma sterilization systems, Nordion can assist you in identifying where improvements can be made and in implementing solutions to help your irradiator meet international safety standards and help you avoid unplanned downtime....
Nordion GCE Works with Apiculturists to Defend Against Powerful Disease
Identifying and developing new markets that could benefit from gamma irradiation is a key focus of Nordion’s Gamma Centre of Excellence (GCE). Recently, the centre has been involved with exploring a new market where gamma can play a significant role – apiculture (beekeeping).
Nordion recently attended the Apimondia Symposium in Quebec City to promote gamma irradiation to the international apiculture community and GCE’s irradiation services available to Canadian apiculturists.
Nordion Speaks Out for Gamma Following Devastating E.Coli Contamination
The XL Foods beef recall that affected Canada and the US this past September reignited discussions about food irradiation.
A leader in gamma irradiation – a tool that can be used to reduce or kill pathogens such as E. coli, salmonella and listeria – Nordion is a go to source for media on this topic.
As such, our Gamma Centre of Excellence (GCE) was visited by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to get an inside look at the gamma irradiation process.
