We deliver convenient and low-cost gamma sterilization services for small product R&D, such as for the sterilization needs in biomedical product development cycles with our Small Volume Gamma Irradiator (6-inch D x 8-inch H).
Gamma irradiation is a simple and proven process for the safe, reliable and effective sterilization of devices. Gamma photons have the ability to penetrate deeply into material to provide a uniform sterilization dose throughout the volume of material. To validate the sterilization dose, an accurate measurement of radiation exposure is crucial. VPT Rad provides accurate radiation dose measurements using a calibrated dosimetry system traceable to NIST.
Additionally, as radiation electronics specialists, our electronics testing and radiation knowledge combine to uniquely service the small product sterilization needs of the biomedical implantable and bio-robotics markets.
The VPT Rad gamma irradiator provides a uniform field of high energy and high dose rate gamma photons inside a cylindrical sample volume of 3700cc (225 in3). A typical sterilization dose is achieved in a few hours or less.
