Many medical devices need to be sterilized before they are launched on the market or allowed to be used on patients. One possible procedure here is sterilization with beta or gamma rays. How does this technology function exactly? Which are the differences between the two types of irradiation, and how long does it take to sterilize devices?
In order to answer these questions, a camera team from COMPAMED.de visited BGS headquarters in Wiehl and interviewed our expert on radiation sterilization, Dipl.-Ing. Annett Heilmann. More information in the short video report “Radiation sterilization: Sterile medical devices quick and safe”.
