People love medical dramas. Shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice and ER have spent years bringing the most sterile of rooms (the O.R.), directly into our homes and the ratings show; we can’t get enough of it!
However in these dramas, and more importantly, in real life, it’s not just the doctors and nurses that save lives. It’s also clean and sterile MEDICAL DEVICES. While this is not something that is taken into consideration often on ABC, it is definitely at the front and center of our minds.
Sterigenics International has been providing contract sterilization services for over 50 years to the medical device and pharmaceutical industries. With 39 facilities across the world, we have a global reach on three continents, that is not mirrored. Customers around the world are able to take advantage of our innovative technology and expert support at locations nearby to their production and distribution facilities. Each of these facilities carries the exact same quality system, so that we can be sure that we are consistent across the board.
We also have our own lab and consulting area, where we will have our scientists work with you to determine your specific needs. We focus on long-term partnerships with our customers. And because of that, we are able to get a full understanding of your needs.
