Medical Device and Packaging Testing

Our experts provide technical input and advice to help clients improve their product and packaging. As a UKAS ISO 17025 accredited laboratory, we perform both standard and non-standard tests on a range of medical devices, accessories and packaging, to ensure that they are safe and fit for purpose including:

Healthcare Packaging

Shipment and Supply Chain for Medical and Pharmaceutical products

Validation of fitness for purpose in supply is a vital element in new product and pack development, and for the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors this is a mandatory/regulatory requirement (for FDA/MHRA/EMEA approval and compliance with ISO 11607).

Smithers Pira provides a range of packaging services to ensure that products are packed in such a way that their characteristics and performance during intended use will not be adversely affected during transport and storage

Our comprehensive testing facilities enable us to offer a wide range of standard tests (including vibration, drop and impact, thermal and climatic, compression, shock and fragility and post-test integrity support), which we can combine to create custom testing programmes to replicate the product lifecycle.
