Our Sterilization Skillsets

At Kymanox®, we know the struggle of identifying and resolving the constraints of sterilization for new devices already balancing manifold requirements. We use our experiences of common sterilization methods coupled with an analytical approach to develop robust sterilization processes. Whether the product and process are at conceptualization, engineering development, validation, or established in the market, we can develop and implement solutions to improve quality, efficacy, and/or cost.

Sterilization Engineering

For most medical products, achieving sterility is among the highest development priorities. Consequently, it should be natural to give this process serious attention and effort in the development cycle. Unfortunately, many project teams fall into one extreme or another: either ignoring challenges until confronted with failed tests late in development, or adopting conservative, rigid guidelines that increase cost and lead times while limiting innovation. However, more deliberate, proactive efforts generally reduce development costs and decrease time to market.
