Validating radiation sterilization.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  10169624     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
There are three aspects that manufacturers must address when validating radiation sterilization. These are the minimum dose that ensures sterility, the maximum dose at which radiation affects the functionality of the device, and the dose distribution throughout the product. This article defines a validation protocol that satisfies current radiation sterilization standards.
