What You’ll Learn by Attending the MD&M West Nelson Laboratories Classroom on Radiation Sterilization Validation Overview

Martell Winters will present an overview on radiation sterilization at the 2014 MD&M West Conference. Martell is a Senior Scientist at Nelson Laboratories in Salt Lake City, Utah. His presentation will include:

  • Bioburden Testing: How it is performed and what constitutes a good bioburden count
  • Sterility Testing: How it is performed and how to avoid sterility test failures
  • Sterility Suitability Testing (also called B/F): How it is performed and how it relates to sterility testing
  • Radiation Validation: Review of applicable methods and standards
  • Case Studies: Review bioburden and sterility test data to understand approaches to a successful radiation sterilization validation

Take Away:

  • Attendees will learn how to evaluate bioburden data for establishing and monitoring radiation sterilization processes
  • Attendees will be educated as to how method suitability testing can help them receive the best sterility test results the first time around
  • Attendees will gain an understanding of what typically causes sterility test failures and how to avoid them


Martell will present for approximately one hour at the Nelson Labs classroom in 208AB on February 12, 2014 at 1:00 PM.
