Film quality

is assessed after gamma-sterilization as the polymer can change due to the radiation. The films are subjected to sterility testing, mechanical (stretchability, tensibility, resistance), physical (oxygen and carbon dioxide transfer through the film materials), chemical and biological tests (reaction of cell cultures to the film). Studies of extractables and leachables are an important component of the chemical and biological tests.
