Sterilisation of sample packaging for environmental, water and legionella analyses


Sterilising sample packaging is necessary for microbiological and legionella analyses. Sterilising or irradiating products causes damage to DNA bacteria and other microorganisms, leading to the death of these bacteria and microorganisms.


E-Beam treatment and gamma irradiation

LSI uses E-Beam treatment and gamma irradiation for sterilisation:

  • E-Beam treatment: products receive beta ray treatment
  • Gamma irradiation: products are processed using gamma rays (the energy from gamma radiation is considerably higher than that of beta radiation)
