STEMart, a US-based provider of comprehensive services for all phases of medical device development, proudly announces the launch of its new Sterile Barrier & Seal Integrity Testing services for medical device manufacturers to optimize packaging design and performance. This suite of tests ensures the safety and efficacy of medical devices by guaranteeing the integrity of their packaging throughout processing, distribution, and storage.

Medical devices, pharmaceuticals and other healthcare products rely on sterile packaging to maintain sterility until they reach the end user. Any breach in the sterile barrier can jeopardize patient safety, lead to infection, and compromise the efficacy of the sealed product. STEMart’s new Sterile Barrier & Seal Integrity Testing solutions address these issues.

STEMart offers state-of-the-art technology and facilities for multiple strength and integrity testing of packaging to assist manufacturers in optimizing package design and performance. To ensure that medical packaging does not lose its integrity during processing or distribution, the company provides strength testing, including tensile and burst testing, and integrity testing (including bubble emission and dye immersion), as well as whole package integrity testing.

With expertise in consulting, package validation (including packaging and sterilization configurations), material qualification, and package development STEMart provides a full-service experience that supports manufacturers achieve regulatory goals and minimize compliance risks. For example, STEMart technicians meticulously examine empty packages or packaged products for wrinkles, unevenness or channeling at sealed seams. This Visual Inspection service helps identify potential issues early in the process. Peel testing is also offered to closely inspect peeled seams to assess package uniformity and defects or wear, providing further insight into seal strength and integrity.

The STEMart Whole Package Integrity Tests are a series of tests designed to assess the integrity of the entire finished product package. These comprehensive tests include both microbial and sterility testing to determine if any indicator organisms have penetrated the packaging. They are typically performed on various packaging formats, including pouches, trays, syringes, IV bags, tubing sets, vials, and containers.

STEMart is committed to innovating and enhancing its testing capabilities to meet the evolving needs of the medical device industry. These latest testing methods ensure every package maintains its sterility throughout the entire supply chain, enabling patient safety and peace of mind for healthcare professionals. STEMart will continue to provide its customers with the highest quality medical device packaging solutions.

By offering cutting-edge testing solutions, STEMart helps to ensure the quality and safety of the medical device packaging industry.
