Welcome to BBF steriXpert
Experts in packaging, sterilisation, microbiology and biocompatibility
The planned reloading of our cobalt is expected in the course of the 2nd quarter due to changed guidelines and the associated approvals for transport.
As many already know, we went into linear operation after the renovation of the sterilization system. This mode is largely analogous to the circulation in the old system.
For better capacity, however, it is very important for us to go into circular operation. For your clarification, the goods are, for example, guided along the existing conveyor system at four times the speed but in 4 rounds. So 4 rounds that apply a dose of 6.25 kGy to the goods can apply a total of 25 kGy total dose to the goods, as well as one round with 25 kGy in linear mode. This results in a certain flexibility, since goods with a lower total dose required can be irradiated, e.g. with 3 rounds, without having to run the system empty.
Due to the technical requirements that have to be implemented for the circular mode, we have decided not to introduce the circular mode before the second half of 2023.

The BBF Sterilisationsservice GmbH introduces itself
We are a young company and simultaneously build on decades of experience in the area of sterilisation and microbiology. BBF emerged from a company of the Rüsch Group, whose tradition dates back to the 19th century. In our company we employ scientists and engineers from the fields of biology, chemistry, microbiology, molecular medicine, packaging technology, nutrition and hygiene technology. The qualification and motivation of our currently 70 employees are central components of our corporate culture and important cornerstones for achieving our defined quality goals. Our competent contact persons are at your disposal for further information.
Consulting & training
Our company consists of an interdisciplinary team with high quality standards. Thanks to our years of expertise in the field of sterilisation, microbiology, hygiene, packaging and biocompatibility, we are a fitting partner for the planning and execution of demanding methods and tests. Due to our involvement in relevant standardisation committees (e.g. DIN "NA 027-02-12 AA"; ISO/TC 194) and the extensive personal experience and qualifications of our employees, they are not only predestined for teaching activities at German universities, but also for conducting seminars. We offer these as external or internal training sessions.
