Sharpen your understanding of medical device sterilization principles, standards, and regulations.

Industrial Sterilization for Medical Devices is a comprehensive 4-day course covering essential information on sterilization technologies and methods, sterilization standards, FDA requirements, critical factors in product design and product release decisions, and much more. 

Participants will learn how to apply the principles of sterilization and address requirements during product design. Participants will also determine how to select and implement an appropriate sterilization process and how to identify the elements of a successful sterilization validation. Students will participate in the design of process validation for moist heat, ethylene oxide (EO), and radiation sterilization processes and compare and contrast sterilization cycle developments based on product bioburden and those based on combined bioburden/overkill methods.

Participants will learn how to...

  • apply the principles of sterilization and address requirements during product design;
  • select and implement an appropriate sterilization process;
  • and identify the elements of a successful sterilization validation
