Sterilization Process for Product Developers - A Complete Guide
Product developers have the responsibility of the development of medical devices or healthcare products that will be sterilized; however they may not have an adequate understanding of the sterilization processes and its impact to the functionality of the product and its package.
This presentation will provide information that can be used by R&D Engineers and Product Developers to aid them in the selection of materials, design characteristics and appropriate packaging by providing them with a basic knowledge of what is involved in the process of sterilization. It will also provide guidance on how the sterilization process can be changed to address specific product needs such as temperature or moisture sensitivity.
Why you should attend: The cost of proceeding down the wrong path for sterilization can be extremely costly not only financially but in the time delay of bringing a new product to market. This webinar will help product development personnel have a better understanding of how to determine what sterilization method should be used for the new product under development. What the important considerations are that need to be evaluated from materials, product and packaging standpoint as well as other factors that must be considered will be addressed.
