Transit Testing

Medical device packaging transit testing is a critical part of your sterile medical device packaging validation. It is required by ISO 11607-1, the recognized guidelines for terminally sterilized medical devices. This conditioning cycle proves that your product will arrive at the hospital or medical facility, sterile and ready to go. Our process tackles these schedules fast, with your samples on the test floor within one day. From environmental preconditioning to final drop testing, our medical device transit testing procedures deliver precise, reliable results, now.

Shelf-Life Testing

Shelf life testing is a requirement of your sterile medical device packaging stability testing. The ability of a package to withstand the test of time must be proven. Your goal is to speed up the process of aging outcomes. Accelerated aging is an industry-recognized method to achieve a desired performance benchmark, as long as real-time aging is also conducted. With over 5,000 cubic feet of accelerated aging capacity, we offer a wide range of conditioning temperatures to meet the timelines of your aging and shelf life studies.

Integrity testing is part of every sealer qualification, shelf-life and transit validation. It is the ultimate pass or fail of every validation. We are an independent third-party partner with a proven track record. Our test methods have been validated, so you can count on consistent, quality results.
