In October 2020, we had the pleasure to present our first Webinar of this series: “The basics of E-beam Irradiation”. (see the webinar here) We covered the basics of the process, showing the challenging relationship between Dster (sterilization dose), DmaxAcc (maximum acceptable dose) and the DUR (dose uniformity ratio) and the system configuration options for achieving treatment.
The two next webinars will cover product qualification. The first part has explained (see webinar here) the practical definition of DmaxAcc; the second will present dose mapping techniques with detailed examples.
Product Qualification in E-beam and X-ray – Part 2
Tuesday, February 16, 2021 | 3 pm GMT/10 am EST
This webinar will be 60 minutes including Q&A.
After defining Dster and DmaxAcc as presented in the previous webinar, the maximum acceptable irradiation dose range is known. The next step in the product qualification is to determine the DUR for a specific irradiation process. This can be estimated by simulations and must be measured by physical dose mapping.
This webinar will present good practices in dose mapping: dosimetry systems used, mapping methodology, and result analysis. We will present in detail a real case study of E-beam dose mapping and show how it is possible to iteratively minimize the DUR by optimizing the process parameters (vertical vs horizontal, single vs multi-side, packaging, scan length, scattering plate…).
Finally, we will highlight the main differences between E-beam and X-ray.
This webinar is complimentary.
Florent Kuntz, Project Manager Radiation Dosimetry
Florent Kuntz received his Physics Engineer Diploma in the field of nuclear science from University of Strasbourg-France. His involvement in Radiation Processing began during his Ph.D. in which he conducted research on new developments in electron beam dosimetry. (University of Strasbourg-France)
Florent is working with Aerial, a Technological Resource Centre, as project manager in radiation processing and dosimetry.
In the field of radiation processing, he performs trainings on industrial irradiation dosimetry, helps the industry in IQ/OQ/PQ, in dosimetry system selection and calibration. He has also developed the famous AerODE, AerEDE and DoseASAP customized optical and EPR dosimetry equipments.
As dosimetry expert, he conducted several missions with the International Atomic Energy Agency and is member of ASTM and CEN/ISO committee.
François Vander Stappen, Product and Research Program Manager
With a background in electronic engineering and in medical physics, François started working for IBA 12 years ago, in Proton Therapy. After getting a deep experience on the field, he worked in R&D and led several research programs, aimed at improving the treatment accuracy.
Early 2020, he joined the IBA Industrial business unit in the Product Management team. He works at developing a research program in collaboration with Aerial, bringing his experience of medical irradiations to the industrial domain.
