BGS: With cutting-edge radiation technology, experience and innovative spirit to the right solution

Beta-Gamma-Service GmbH & Co. KG, in short BGS, is among the pioneers in the industrial application of beta and gamma rays. With the help of ionizing radiation, we ensure that in our plants microorganisms on sensitive products which are harmful to health are destroyed fast, reliably and in an environmentally friendly manner. Since our foundation in 1981, we have thus been the preferred partner for all those industries where sterility is essential – for example, in the field of medical technology, in the pharmaceutical industry or biotechnology. For just as long, we have been active in the processing of plastics. Through the treatment with high-energy electron or gamma

radiation, we improve the material properties of inexpensive standard polymers in such a way that they become permanently more resistant to heat, wear and chemicals – and can replace significantly more expensive high-performance plastics. We are convinced that the potential of ionizing radiation and the possibilities of radiation crosslinking are by no means exhausted yet. Already now, we contribute to the promotion of lightweight construction in the mobility segment and support the safeguarding of the earth’s resources, because radiation crosslinked plastics replace rare and expensive raw materials. Let us work together on new ideas and solutions for future applications!

Quality & Certifications
Gamma & beta rays

BGS works with a quality management system according to ISO 9001 and DIN EN ISO 13485. The system also fulfils the specification of EN ISO 11137 for the sterilization of health care devices. Learn more about the quality standards and certifications at BGS >>

Both beta as well as gamma rays are suitable for sterilization. The main difference between them lies in their penetration capabilities for materials and the dose rates. Learn more about the process here >>
