With large potential cost savings seen in terms of capital investment, warehousing space and internal resources, Barger, a turnkey designer and manufacturer of medical packaging systems, has turned single thermoformed clamshells into universal packaging housing hundreds of SKUs for a number of customers. In this month’s Pharmaceutical and Medical Packaging News (PMP) magazine’s article “Seeking Universal Savings,” Barger discusses how universal packaging can help medical packaging engineers limit the number of validations required for designs and processes.

Universal packaging is a growing trend which can help alleviate costs and headaches for medical device and component manufacturers. With universal packaging, multiple SKUs can be configured into one package while design validations can focus on the worst case. In addition, Barger’s unique BargerGard® polyurethane materials can act as void fill which can increase the universal packaging design’s use for additional applications.
