Ethylene Oxide Sterilization for Medical Devices

Aug 26 to Aug 29, 2024

Overview

This highly interactive 3.5-day, advanced course assumes that participants are experienced in working with an established ethylene oxide sterilization process but are now challenged with ensuring the continued effectiveness and assessing change for the product or process. The program combines classroom lecture with real-life scenarios to illustrate concepts and situational analyses that provide participants with the opportunity to apply what they learn to actual sterilization scenarios.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • improve development and routine turn-around time
  • make changes to product, equipment, process, and sterilizer location
  • determine if validation or requalification is necessary
  • troubleshoot cycle anomalies
  • optimize the sterilization process.

 

What to expect

A combination of situation analyses, case study exercises, and both formal and informal discussions are used throughout the program to provide maximum opportunity for the application of information.

Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for professionals that have responsibility for making decisions related to the ethylene oxide sterilization process such as introduction of new/modified products, sterilization process improvements, failure investigation, requalification, and validation. AAMI recommends this course for those who are experienced in working with an established ethylene oxide sterilization process and NOT professionals that are new to ethylene oxide sterilization.

Materials

Fee includes presentations, pertinent FDA documents, additional references, and case studies.
