Case study: An innovative way to thermally sterilize Hyaluronic acid PFS.
In collaboration with IBSA International.
Several reports on degradation of HA involving microwaves, UV or γ-rays have been published. Rheological studies also show that HA solutions degrade at high temperature: viscosity of the solutions decreases in time as a function of temperature. Therefore, its thermal sterilization treatment always represents a challenge. An optimized moist heat sterilization cycle can minimize product degradation (and change of molecular weight) maintaining the required viscosity for the specific application.
