Validation and Process Control for Low Energy Electron Beam Irradiation

Irradiation with electron beams in the energy range lower than 300 keV is used in the polymer industry for curing and crosslinking. These beams are also used in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries for sterilization of surfaces, emphasizing the need for validation of low energy electron beam processes.

The international standard ISO 11137 is written primarily for medical device sterilization, but the validation requirements in this standard apply equally well for the sterilization of, for example, packaging for pharmaceutical products, and in fact for all processes employing low energy electron beams.

This Risø course on “Validation and process control for low energy electron beam irradiation” provides the background for understanding the validation requirements with focus on the dosimet­ric aspects as used in

  • IQ/OQ, Installation / Operational Qualification
  • PQ, Performance Qualification
  • Routine monitoring and Process Control
20 - 24August2018

Validation and Process Control for Electron Beam Sterilization

This course is being offered by Risø High Dose Reference Laboratory.

This Risø course gives background for understanding and fulfilling the requirements of the radiation sterilization standard EN ISO 11137.

The course is an updated version of the course that has been organized by Risø High Dose Reference Laboratory approximately 50 times with a total close to 400 participants.

Participants will carry out

– dosimeter calibration by irradiation at a 10 MeV electron accelerator,

– measurements for Operational Qualification and

– dose mapping for Performance Qualification.

Methods for sterilization dose setting and substantiation according to EN ISO 11137-2 will be discussed, as well as Effects of radiation on polymers.

The emphasis of this course is on high energy (10 MeV) electron beam sterilization, but aspects of low energy (100 keV) electron beam and of gamma sterilization will also be discussed.
