Electron beam for sterilisation

Electron beam processing, commonly referred to as e-beam, is a sterilisation method which uses high energy electrons to sterilise an object. In terms of sterilisation technology, it is a method of irradiation and is sometimes described as electron irradiation - the act of applying radiation, or radiant energy, to some material.

As an introduction to the subject, Tim Sandle has written an article for the journal European Medical Hygiene.

The reference is:
