    Medical Device Packaging Testing

Sterile Barrier Validation - ISO 11607

Protect Patient Safety and Ensure Regulatory Compliance: Partner with MET for Medical Device Packaging Testing

Packaging forms an integral and very important part of all sterile medical devices. CE technical files and FDA submissions both require testing to ISO 11607-1: Packaging for terminally sterilized medical devices. This is why medical device packaging testing is so important.

Ensure your medical devices arrive sterile and functional with MET's comprehensive packaging testing. We support engineers in validating pharmaceutical containers, medical pouches, and blisters for all device classes.

Our Expertise, Your Confidence:

  • ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited Lab: Unmatched accuracy and reliability.
  • Ageing Chambers: Simulate real-world aging for validated shelf-life claims.
  • Rigorous Testing Equipment: Assess burst strength, leak resistance, and tensile integrity.
  • Transit Simulation Studies: Optimise your shipping containers for ultimate protection.

Accelerated Ageing & Real Time Ageing

Accelerated aging is used to simulate real-time shelf-life aging and is, therefore, conducted to validate shelf-life claims. While accelerated aging offers insights, real-time aging studies may be conducted to further confirm long-term stability. This testing is carried out according to ASTM F1980 - Standard Guide for Accelerated Aging of Sterile Medical Device Packages. Read more about Accelerated Ageing

Seal Strength & Integrity

All sterile medical devices require validation of their packaging. The sterile barrier must be shown to be effective throughout the product's claimed shelf-life. Examination of materials, processes and stability all contribute to demonstrating that the sterilisation process is effective and that sterility is maintained. Read more about Seal Strength and Integrity

Transit Simulation

Shipping validation is mandatory for CE marked medical devices. MET's testing protocols follow the philosophy of ISO 11607-1 - Packaging for terminally sterilized medical devices. Requirements for materials, sterile barrier systems and packaging systemsRead more about Transit Simulation
