Gamma irradiation is a safe technology that can penetrate dense material to eliminate the presence of microorganisms, without damaging or changing the temperature of the material. Gamma sterilization has significant advantages compared to other methods of sterilization. Gamma sterilization: has better assurance of sterility than sterile filtration and aseptic processing; is a low temperature process; is more penetrating than E-beam irradiation; and unlike poison gas technologies gamma irradiation does not leave residue behind.
