Benefiting the lives of millions of people around the world every day. Radiation processing is routinely used in a vast array of applications.

The iia is pleased to welcome MedAccred as its newest member. MedAccred is an industry managed, consensus-driven approach to ensuring critical manufacturing process quality throughout the medical device supply chain. In today’s world of global manufacturing, the supply chain is multi-tiered and geographically remote, making oversight challenging...

STERIS, a member of the iia, recently announced completion of expansion of its facility at Chonburi Thailand and planned expansion at Suzhou China. These expansions include the incorporation of X-ray processing capabilities to enable STERIS to enhance its sterilisation services using a wider range of technologies. The announcements can be read at these links to the STERIS website: STERIS ANNOUNCES COMPLETED EXPANSION OF...

AAMI recently published a collection of articles in their publication ‘Industrial Sterilization: Material Compatibility & Process Optimisation’. Under Material Compatibility, articles include: ‘Effects of Electron Beam Sterilization on Polytetrafluoroethylene: Design of Experiments Study’ 'Effect of Gamma and X-ray Irradiation on Polymers Commonly Used in Healthcare Products’ Under...

IBA Industrial Solutions, member of the iia, has signed a contract to install its Be-Efficient electron beam irradiation solution in Germany. The contract, announced on March 19, 2024, includes two Rhodotron® accelerators along with supporting systems for polymer crosslinking applications. Typically priced between EUR 11...

The Phytosanitary Irradiation Platform (PsIP) recently held two webinars discussing the effect on fruit quality when using phytosanitary irradiation as a post harvest treatment. The recordings of these webinars are now available to watch, along with brief descriptions of both webinars below:  Effects of Phytosanitary Irradiation...

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), a member of iia, are developing a new type of electron beam accelerator system that could be used to make X-rays for use in medical device sterilisation. Fermilab is building a prototype electron...

AAMI recently published a collection of 11 articles on the issues of resistance and barriers to changing sterilization modalities, the tools and resources available to aid the transition between modalities, and the efficient use available sterilization capacity. ‘Industrial Sterilization: Process optimisation and sterilisation modality changes’...

This article, published in BI&T/AAMI Array, presents a novel method and detector system for use in radiation processing using X-ray.  The system would allow real-time monitoring of each pallet being processed and ensure that the correct X-ray beam is directed to the product.  The process...
