What is Electron Beam Irradiation?
E-Beam sterilization is based on the use of high energy electrons to shred the nucleic acids of microbial contaminants on medical devices and packaging. Commercial electricity is used to power up a linear accelerator that generates the electrons which makes multiple breaks in the DNA backbone of microorganisms. The microorganisms cannot repair this level of DNA damage and so the cell dies. E-Beam irradiation can be customized to achieve defined reduction of any levels of microbial contamination and can be customized to the medical device and products chemical and physical specifications. E-Beam irradiation is a technology that is widely used all around the world. E-Beam irradiation is a fast-growing technology.
