Transcript of Makeup Sterilization
Balanced Nuclear equation
The Continuation of
High-enrgy photons (gamma rays) are emitted from the isotope Cobalt-60 (27 Protons and 33 neutrons)
Gamma sterilization technology is very well understood, safe and easy to validate. It is the protocol of choice for Medical device manufacturers and service providers
Gamma is a flexible, efficient, and and effective sterilization modality
The history of gamma irradation goes back to around 1895 but has been used for steilization since 1972
In 1963, the first gamma irradiator in the US was installed in New Jersey for the processing of medical device
A french chemist and pgyist, Paul Villard, discovered gamma radiation in 1900 while studying radiation emitted from radium
Was named "gamma rays" by Ernest Rutherford in 1903
Is predictable and repeatable
Though a radioactive metal is used, the process does not make it radioactive or leave a radioactive residue
A simple and highly reliable process
Can treat a wide range of products
Leave no trace of toxic substances behind
High levels of gamma ray exposure has negative health effects on living tissues and cells
Trained operator is required
Can alter your DNA
