July 27, 2023 l By: Milton Jackson Jr., PhD

Sterilization prices continue to increase. In this whitepaper, we illustrate the differences between sterilization methods, along with their product advantages, disadvantages, and limitations.

Sterilization is paramount in critical environments to prevent the introduction and spread of harmful microorganisms that can compromise the quality and performance of labeled products. We discuss the key reasons why sterilization is essential in high-performance critical environment labeling and how the methods differ from one another: EtO Sterilization, Steam Sterilization, Gamma Irradiation Sterilization, Heat Sterilization, Chemical Sterilization, and Filtration Sterilization.
