In the medical device industry, the product is the main thing. It has to be safe. It has to be efficacious. It has to be…packaged?

This post from Packaging Digest & Neil Thompson at Sterilliant LLC really well illustrates the many considerations medical device companies need to factor in when designing and implementing new packaging.
Packaging projects in the medical and pharmaceutical industries need to be well planned and executed to avoid delays and manufacturing stoppages.
Packaging is now an important branding exercise that can result in a competitive advantage but furthermore for those in regulated markets that require sterile solutions it is a legal requirement. For medical devices package validation testing is outlined under ISO 11607.
The bottom line. Do not see packaging as a supporting act, start your development early on.
