The loss of functional properties is often the most important result of polymer irradiation. Properties affected can include the following: RIOR P tensile strength impact strength shear strength elongation For pharmaceutical products, response of a drug must be understood. No unique radiolytic products have been found in irradiated drugs. The breakdown products found after irradiation are identical to those found during manufacture of a drug, or are metabolites of the drug. Newer techniques for irradiating drugs require that drugs be treated in a frozen state because water, which comprises the bulk of a parenteral or oral drug, is the major source of free radicals resulting from bombardment with gamma photons or electrons.

A direct impact ofthis trend is a downsizing of the sterilization support and technical knowledge within the medical device manufacturer's staff. Proper communication and understanding of the sterilizer's activities is essential. The responsibility for sterility is therefore shared, and the division of responsibilities must be clearly defined and understood by both parties. A partial list of contract sterilization facilities is included in Appendix 1. Validation of the sterilizing dose is the responsibility of the device manufacturer, but responsibility for the validation tasks may be delegated to individuals employed by the contractor.

2% of the original device. STERILITY ASSURANCE LEVELS (SAL) The selection of an appropriate sterility assurance level (SAL) is dependent on the intended use of the product and the ability of the product to withstand a terminal sterilization process. The SAL is based on the bacterial survival curve (Figure 9). When a population of microbial cells is irradiated, the number of viable cells in the population diminishes exponentially as the radiation dose increases to a point where no viable cells remain.
