Radiation sterilization of medical devices

Dear Sir or Madam,

Sterility has played a role in the production of medical products from the very beginning. But how can large batches of items be sterilized quickly and easily? One solution can be radiation sterilization. We have taken a closer look at the process. You can see the result in the video!

Have a nice day!
