New technology in medical products sterilization


Synergy Health hosting x-ray sterilization seminar in Tampa

Synergy Health, a global leader in specialist healthcare services, will host a seminar on X-ray sterilization at its recently relocated Americas headquarters in downtown Tampa. The event, scheduled for October 8, 2013, will convene an influential roster of medical device companies to learn more about Synergy Health’s commitment to this innovative technology.

Synergy Health operates the only X-ray facility built for medical device sterilization in the world, located in Däniken, Switzerland. Dr. Hans Hartmann of Synergy Health designed and built the facility, and will present as the seminar’s keynote speaker.

“X-ray has substantial advantages over traditional methods used for sterilizing products, and we are passionate about educating the medical device market on the advantages this technology can bring,” said Andrew McLean, President of the company’s Applied Sterilization Technologies division.

Home to a growing number of medical technology organizations, Tampa Bay is the ideal backdrop for the event. As the state’s greater bioscience cluster further expands into the local market, the region will be well-positioned for the relocation and expansion of additional companies within the medical sector. Synergy Health is committed to supporting that effort through activities that promote innovation and growth in the life sciences industry, like the MediFuture initiative launched by the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation (EDC) earlier this year.

“This event is an exciting opportunity to introduce global business prospects to the competitive advantages of the Tampa Bay region,” said Rick Homans, President and CEO of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation. “We’re creating a viable business case to serve as the epicenter of healthcare innovation, and the active involvement of partners like Synergy Health will be a key factor in helping us achieve that goal.

” Pre-registration is required for the October 8 seminar. For more information, please contact Stephanie Newton at (813) 891-9550 or email
