MDM_Seminar_Event_imageNelson Laboratories will be exhibiting at the MD&M Texas show, May 7-8, 2014, at the Fort Worth Convention Center in booth #523.

Presentation: Medical Device Sterilization: Selection of SAL, Evaluation of Bioburden Data, Alert and Action Levels of Bioburden Excursions

During the two-day conference and showcase Martell Winters, Senior Scientist at Nelson Laboratories, will be presenting a Learning Lab on Thursday May 8th from 10:00- 11:45 am. He will be presenting Medical Device Sterilization: Selection of SAL, Evaluation of Bioburden Data, Alert and Action Levels and Bioburden Excursions to help manufacturers understand sterility assurance and bioburden data. Of interest to medical device manufacturers is the “absolute” necessity of a 10^-6 sterility assurance level (SAL), use of “less-than” values with bioburden data and properly establishing alert and action levels. These topics are applicable to all forms of sterilization (e.g. ethylene oxide, radiation, etc.) and all product types, but are of special interest to combination products, biologics and tissues.

If you can’t make the Learning Lab presentation, Mr. Winters will also present at the Tech Theater on Wednesday May 7th from 1:00-1:30 pm on “Updates to the Bioburden Standard ISO 11737-1; Significant Additional Guidance. P.S. What Happened to the Microbiologists?”. If you would like to meet one on one with Mr. Winters, he will be available in the Nelson booth for FREE consulting sessions, a $500 value. Availability will be determined on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to reserve a time for a consult in advance, please email mpizzi@nelsonlabs.com.

Below are topics that Mr. Winters will be available to discuss at MD&M Texas:

  • Radiation sterilization
  • Selection of SAL
  • Aseptic Processing
  • Evaluating of bioburden data
  • Bioburden alert and action levels
  • Environmental monitoring
