Medical Device Sterilization

Bioburden reduction of consumer goods:

  • cosmetics
  • spices
  • herbs
  • toiletries
  • pharmaceutical raw materials
  • food packaging
  • dyes and colorants

Industrial products processing



Background radiation measured on the exterior wall of Scandinavian Clinics Estonia OÜ´s plant (μSv/h):

(Natural background radiation in Estonia may reach up to 0,3 μSv/h)



Survey area: 0,12 µSv/h;
Control area: 0,10 µSv/h;
Pool: 0,08 µSv/h


The term decontamination indicates that we intend to somewhat decrease the bioburden but not go as far as sterilization and  thereby comply with the strict regulations in that field. Instead the user, according to his own needs, defines himself the degree of microbial reduction. One example is that packing material, though already  rather clean from the mechanical manufacturing process, can be processed down to 1/100 or 1/1000 of the original bioburden. And at small doses compared to sterilization. Perhaps it is enough with 2 kGy instead of 25 as normally  required for sterilization. The gain for the user is that the total bioburden in his plant may decrease a significant factor, which may mean that he will be more attractive for demanding customers. The increased cleanliness will thereby be paid for.

To satisfy the need for large scale decontamination we will install an unusual feature  in our gamma plant, aimed at handling very large objects at small doses. E.g. a paper roll with diameter 1 meter and length 2 meters.
