Boulder Sterilization doubles capacity, shortens response times

BOULDER — Boulder Sterilization, a division of Boulder iQ, the trade name for Boulder BioMed LLC, has more than doubled its capacity for ethylene oxide sterilization of medical devices and is completing standard validations for medical devices in as little as four weeks instead of typical eight to 10 weeks.

In a press statement, the company reported that it has added three sterilization chambers, bringing its total to five, “to meet increased demands from medical device developers nationwide. The sterilization service provides full validations as well as validations for single-lot releases and engineering runs,” the statement said. 

“Boulder Sterilization attributes the increased demand to several factors. One is that the company has been able to maintain a constant ethylene oxide gas supply in a market where many companies have suffered from supply chain issues. Another is reliability,” Peggy Fasano, chief operating officer, said in a written statement. “We are straight-forward and direct with our customers. We make commitments thoughtfully, with strong data, so that we can keep deadlines. Customers receive sterilized products on time, every time.”

Fasano said that the company shortened its validation time by conducting multiple cycles simultaneously.  

“It’s one more way we are implementing a ‘think smart’ approach for medical device developers who need to speed their products to market,” she said.
