Tech Talk – Cobalt-60: Investing for the Future of Gamma Sterilization

Gamma sterilization has been the predominant radiation sterilization modality for decades and accounts for more than 30% of all single-use medical device sterilization globally. Gamma sterilization relies on the ongoing supply of Cobalt-60 to the global market. In this session, you will learn how Cobalt-60 is produced, and get updated information on efforts underway in the global supply chain to not only expand production to meet growing demand but also improve utilization of this critical resource. The presentation will also include a discussion on the sustainability of Cobalt-60 and gamma sterilization.
