Cleanroom Thermoforming – Future-Proofing Medical Devices

Improvements to packaging design are now a necessity. At the same time, there is a demand to deliver products in a packaging solution that adheres to strict specifications, while using less production energy and material, as well as faster production times.

What is Thermoforming?

Cleanroom thermoforming is widely used for the production and packaging of pharmaceuticals and medical equipment. This method of thermoforming is carried out in an ISO-certified cleanroom, meaning any particulates circulating in the air are kept to a minimum. Thermoform packaging is extensively used to safeguard sterile instruments and implants. This packaging method permits the use of lightweight, clear plastic enclosures that stop microbial and dust particles from contaminating the sterile item. They also secure the product’s storage for lengthy periods, while maintaining the sterile environment.

The Benefits of Thermoforming

This advanced technology has established itself as a preferred option for many industries and applications, including medical devices, with the main benefit of this packaging solution the clear cost efficiency it offers. The stiffness of this type of packaging material also allows for the creation of smaller units, offers a barrier to odours, oil, and grease, and has space-saving benefits.

Customising the Cold Chain

World Courier

Of all the statistics emerging around the global pharmaceutical industry this year, two big numbers capture the attention of both manufacturers and their logistics partners: $248 billion, the amount the “BRIC” nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) are poised to account for in pharmaceutical sales for by 2016; and $8 billion, the amount global pharma will spend on cold chain logistics in 2014. Why are these two numbers so noteworthy? They demonstrate that as R&D goes, so goes logistics. As products evolve to meet demands for more targeted therapies, demand for more targeted logistics solutions grows as well. And that means a need for customization for everything from clinical trial samples to finished product.
