Medical device packaging services should start at a very early stage of product development. The more detailed the packaging requirements, the more suitable the packaging will be, meeting both customer requirements and those of notified bodies such as the US FDA and EU MDR.
Outsourcing of packaging services ranges from design through to serial production. It allows companies to focus on the device concept and specifications rather than having to invest in manufacturing, which is especially critical for start-ups and medium-size companies. It is the responsibility of external partners such as SteriPack to advise on solutions, sharing our expertise to ensure packaging sterility is maintained throughout the process, all the way to the product reaching the patient. SteriPack’s core activity is medical devices packaging, which includes:
- Packaging design and development

- Regulatory advice and support
- Process development
- Packaging validation
- Sourcing of materials
