The value of medical devices lies under how well they are protected from pollutants and external forces; solution providers are on their toes in implementing the most advanced technologies in introducing a competitive edge to packaging and sterilization. The current packaging and sterilization industry is undergoing a rapid transformation in terms of the approaches considered by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) while mitigating challenges. Most OEMs are attempting to implement improved validation protocols, thereby address areas of consumer concerns pertaining to the materials used while packing medical devices and edible products.
Patient safety continues to be one of the significant pillars of success for the medical industry. Hence, care providers must make sure that all packaging operations are completed according to the existing compliance regulations. However, in addition to all other changes in the medical industry, packaging also requires to be modified as per the industry standards such as ISO 10993 and ISO 11607, as well as the demands of the customers.
In an attempt to meet modern demands, OEMs are avoiding the use of materials such as styrene or bisphenol A (BPA) while packing devices and replacing them with specialized copolyesters, which is thermoformed and used in creating opaque medical packaging materials. While this is helping OEMs to attract more customers, they are also enjoying success in complying with the ever-changing legal standards.
