Martell Winters will present an overview on radiation sterilization at the 2014 MD&M West Conference. Martell is a Senior Scientist at Nelson Laboratories in Salt Lake City, Utah. His presentation will include:

  • Bioburden Testing: How it is performed and what constitutes a good bioburden count
  • Sterility Testing: How it is performed and how to avoid sterility test failures
  • Sterility Suitability Testing (also called B/F): How it is performed and how it relates to sterility testing
  • Radiation Validation: Review of applicable methods and standards
  • Case Studies: Review bioburden and sterility test data to understand approaches to a successful radiation sterilization validation

Take Away:

  • Attendees will learn how to evaluate bioburden data for establishing and monitoring radiation sterilization processes
  • Attendees will be educated as to how method suitability testing can help them receive the best sterility test results the first time around
  • Attendees will gain an understanding of what typically causes sterility test failures and how to avoid them

Details:

Martell will present for approximately one hour at the Nelson Labs classroom in 208AB on February 12, 2014 at 1:00 PM.
