Kilmer Conference ProceedingsJohnson & Johnson (J & J) has donated the following published proceedings from the Kilmer Conferences. These conferences brought together leaders in sterility assurance and sterilization. Held every two to three years between 1976 and 2003, the Kilmer Conferences were organized and hosted by J & J.

The proceedings from the Kilmer Conferences have been published in eight separate volumes, and they are rich in what they cover. Topics include: environmental controls in manufacturing, the importance of bioburden in sterile processing, pyrogen testing, ethylene oxide sterilization, regulatory considerations, gamma sterilization, and validation challenges. Presenters at the conferences came from a variety of backgrounds, both nationally and internationally.

J & J also has donated two volumes of material on sterilization by ionizing radiation.

The documents have been converted into pdf files.
