You'd be best asking your drive manufacturer. Sanitize can be done from Crucial Storage Executive - but only for Crucial drive models.
If you don't need it securely erased (ie your just reusing it yourself) a quick format is as good as anything!

@shalmali, Checking with your drive's manufacturer is best as targetbsp suggested. IIRC, I believe many of that brand drive use a SandForce controller and I've never had a problem erasing them (SandForce drive). If it is a SATA based SSD you should be able to use Parted Magic to Sanitize/Secure Erase it (may allow for nvme as well as I've never used it personally). The SSD would have to be connected to an internal controller set to AHCI mode or connected externally with eSATA. If you use Linux, it can be done from there as well.
