Veegum was irradiated at graded doses of 5-25 KGy and monitored for changes in physcochemical characteristics. Microbiological and accelerated stability studies were carried out to determine the minimum decontamination dose and post-irradiation stability, respectively. Veegum was successfully decontaminated at 25 KGy and found to be stable upto 25 KGy dose of gamma radiation.
