Martell Winters, senior scientist at Nelson Laboratories, will speak at a Learning Lab on May 8 from 10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. CDT. He will present information that will help medical device manufacturers understand sterility assurance and bioburden data.

"I will discuss the necessity of a 10-6 sterility level, and will address the use of necessary levels of bioburden data to ensure proper sterilization," Winters says. "My presentation will be especially applicable to sterilization of combination products, biologics, and tissues."

In addition to the Learning Lab, Winters will present at the Tech Theater on May 7 from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. His presentation will be "Updates to the Bioburden Standard ISO 11737-1: Significant Additional Guidance- P.S. What Happened to the Microbiologists?"
