Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) August 22, 2007
http://www.testedandproven.com/ - DDL, a leading package testing services firm, specializing in medical device package testing, has substantially expanded its second laboratory dedicated to environmental testing in Eden Prairie, MN.
The facility, dubbed Opportunity Court, was initially developed last year as a response to DDL's rapid growth and an increased demand for environmental testing services. The laboratory immediately allowed DDL to effectively and efficiently take on more projects.
With the recent expansion, DDL's growth in capacity mirrors the new level of achievement it's able to provide for its ever growing client base.
"The expanded environmental testing laboratory ensures the fastest possible response time when it comes to starting projects for our current and future clients," states John Hart, CEO of DDL. "This means that our clients can deliver their product to market intact and in record time."
In the medical device testing industry, time to market is absolutely critical as firms must quickly ensure their products safely weather conditions to reach those that need them most.
DDL's expansion makes it possible for its clients to achieve the required time to market via a testing chamber capacity that has been expanded to 1178 cubic feet.
"The expansion of DDL's chambers ensures that the rapid and efficient service our current clients have come to expect are not affected as we take on an ever growing client base," states Patrick Nolan, COO of DDL.
DDL's chamber expansion has also grown to include the addition of ISTA Conditioning chambers. These chambers allow for tests that will challenge the strength and robustness of not just the medical device's packaging, but the product and package combination.
"Ultimately, our clients need to be assured that not only will the package stand up to conditions, but so will the product," continues Nolan. "By expanding our chamber capacity, and by adding chambers dedicated to ISTA conditioning, our clients are assured that their product, packaging and all, will survive its journey to the end user."
DDL offers expert package testing, product testing and material testing services including shock testing, vibration testing, tensile testing, leak testing and validation. DDL package testing clients find value through its growing suite of PackServices: PackAdvice, a zero-cost package testing consulting service, and PackReview, a DDL approved certification to demonstrate compliance with ISO 11607 (clause 7). DDL Testing Services maintains full service testing labs in Minnesota and California. http://www.testedandproven.com
