A Few Facts on Medical Device Packaging
As the technology in medicine and medical devices has progressed over time, so too has the technology in medical device packaging. Most people don’t know it, but almost every medical device that is used in a hospital must be sterilized and packaged prior to it being used in any medical procedure.
Sterility is Crucial
The are several types and methods that are incorporated in medical device packaging and each one has its own specific purposes, but they all have one basic feature in common and that is to maintain the sterility of the device after it has been properly cleaned and processed.
Most Common Type
Possibly the most common type of sterile medical device packaging that most people will encounter during their life time, is the packages of pills and medication that are contained in individual use packages. These are the the pill packages that a person might buy with a prescription, or over the counter at their local drug store.
Basic Commercial Packaging
Plastic packaging in general, such as the type that is used to contain basic commercial items can be difficult to open. Perhaps you have found yourself from time to time having to break out a razor knife to remove the packaging from something that you have purchased in the past. This is because with basic commercial packaging, ease of removal is basically not an issue.
Easy Open Medical Device Packaging
Medical device packaging is different however. Ease of removal is crucial with medical device packaging and is taken into account. Medical devices, while being tightly contained in their packaging, must be able to be quickly and easily removed for ease of use and also so the device isn’t damaged while it is being removed from the packaging it is contained in.
