Our History

The Sotera Health name is new, but our track record for reliability and safety in global health is well established. Formed in 2017 as the parent company for Nelson Labs, Nordion and Sterigenics, Sotera Health is the leader in protecting global health thanks to the longstanding reputation for quality across each of its companies.

In aggregate, Sotera Health has over 185 years of combined industry leadership. Sterigenics has provided safe sterilization services since the 1930s. Nordion has established expertise in gamma technologies and medical isotopes since 1946. Nelson Labs has provided expert lab testing since 1985. Our most recent addition to the Sotera Health family, Toxikon Europe, has established a leading extractables and leachables testing platform since 1990. An impressive history that points to an even brighter future.
