Topics include:

  • Evolution of Industrial Sterilization
  • Sterilization Microbiology
  • Gamma Radiation Sterilization Review
  • Radiation Dose Setting & Maintaining a Sterile Claim
  • Electron Beam Sterilization Review
  • Ethylene Oxide Sterilization Review
  • Selection of Materials Subject to Sterilization
  • Packaging Considerations for Sterile Medical Devices
  • How to Ensure an Effective Sterile Barrier System
  • Cleaning Programs for Medical Device Cleanrooms

Hands-On Workshop in eBeam Technologies – Texas A&M

Texas A&M

The National Center for Electron Beam Research (NCEBR) at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas is running another of its highly respected workshops giving practical operational training on the use of electron accelerators.

Texas A&M is an unparalleled venue for academic, government, and industry scientists to carry out strategic electronic pasteurization and sterilization research and commercial projects using eBeam.

The Workshop aims to address the needs of the food, phytosanitary, agribusiness, as well as pharmaceutical industries. The National Centre for EB Research is organizing this week-long hands-on workshop in eBeam technologies in March 2017. This will be the 8th eBeam workshop since the initial event in 2010.

Security of Gamma Irradiation Facilities – Workshop

As previously announced iia and WINS are working together to organise a workshop “The Security of Gamma Irradiation Facilities used for Industrial and Research Irradiation and Sterilisation”. The event will be held on Friday 11 November 2016 – immediately after IMRP and will be held at the IMRP Conference hotel in Vancouver, Canada.

There will be no cost to attend the workshop which is being funded by iia and WINS. Numbers are strictly limited due to the interactive style and format of the event. Priority will be given to iia members wishing to attend the event.

We are now able to provide a Draft Agenda for the day together with an Application Form that needs to be completed and submitted by all those wishing to request a place at the workshop.

Application Form

Completed Applications Forms should be sent to Jadallah Hammal at WINS – Jadallah.hammal@wins.org with a copy to Martin Comben at iia mcomben@iiaglobal.com

An initial allocation of places on the Workshop will be made on Friday 29 July 2016
