Sterilization of hydrogels is challenging due to their often reported sensitivity to conventional methods involving heat or radiation. Although aseptic manufacturing is a possibility, terminal sterilization is safer in biological terms, leading to a higher overall efficiency, and thus should be used whenever it is possible. The main goal of this work was to study the applicability of an innovative ozone gas terminal sterilization method for silicone-based hydrogels and compare its efficacy and… CONTINUE READING
