Product Durability Studies

Through our combined device testing, environmental simulation, and chemical analytical services, Smithers Pira are able to assess product durability by simulating its end-use environment.

We can combine our testing services to simulate the conditions your product will face in its expected environment. Between Smithers Pira and our sister company Smithers Rapra we provide a comprehensive range of medical testing services, including:

  • Accelerated ageing (shelf life studies)
  • Transit studies (vibration, shock, drop, impact)
  • Integrity assessments (sterility testing)
  • Extractables and leachables analysis (contaminant identification)

Our expert team can devise a bespoke testing programme, tailored to meet your specific conditions. We can provide assurance that your device - and any contained drug product - is able to withstand the demands of its operational environment, and remain fit-for-purpose even at the end of its predicted life. 


Our laboratories hold UKAS ISO 17025 accreditation for a range of specific tests related to Packaging and Product Testing, and we can undertake work  to meet GMP compliance if required.
