Post-Test Integrity Testing for Medical Packaging

Our post-integrity testing services ensure pack sterility for medical packaging during transit. Our laboratories offer a broad range of tests specified to ISO 11607.

For terminally sterile medical packaging there is a need to demonstrate that the manufacturing, transit and storage environments do not compromise the sterility of the pack. For sterile barrier packaging, laboratory transit testing is followed by an integrity assessment.
