DDL, leader in medical device package, product and material testing, announced that via findings from their March "Packaging Quizzler" more than 60 percent of medical device packaging professionals understand which tests are necessary to ensure integrity is maintained throughout the validation process.

After accelerated aging and distribution simulation testing, package leak testing is used to ensure that the sterile barriers of the packaging system haven't been compromised throughout the validation process

DDL, leader in medical device package, product and material testing, announced that via findings from their March "Packaging Quizzler" more than 60 percent of medical device packaging professionals understand which tests are necessary to ensure integrity is maintained throughout the validation process.

The most recent "Packaging Quizzler" quizzed medical device packaging professionals on which physical tests are used to ensure medical device package integrity is maintained throughout the packaging lifecycle.

The winner, Michael Grimm, of Synthes, used his knowledge of the importance of package leak testing to correctly answer the quizzler question. "I've worked in package testing for pharmaceuticals and medical devices for 11 years," Grimm said. "I am also an active member of the ASTM F02.40 subcommittee on Package Integrity, so the answer was clear to me."

It's a common assumption that this test proves sterility when instead it proves that the package is still intact and has not been compromised.

"After accelerated aging and distribution simulation testing, package leak testing is used to ensure that the sterile barriers of the packaging system haven't been compromised throughout the validation process," Scott Levy, DDL Packaging Engineer, said.
