Medical And Pharmaceutical

The medical and pharmaceutical industry requires the utmost care and attention when it comes to the transportation of their products. Packaging in the medical and pharmaceutical industry is critical to ensure the safety and efficacy of the products.

Regulatory requirements also requiere manufacturers to ensure packaging and shipping containers are designed to protect devices and drugs from alteration or damage during distribution.

Thus, the best way to accurately replicate shipping and handling in the laboratory is to have a good understanding of the distribution environment.

For this reason, Safe Load Testing Technologies offers the medical and pharmaceutical industry its control, measurement and testing solutions in order to certify the protective capacity of the packaging against the risks it faces during the distribution cycle. 

In order to identify any potential issues that may arise during transportation the following tests are recommended for medical and pharmaceutical packaging:

  • vertical vibration testing to test the effects of vertical vibrations on the packaging
  • horizontal stability testing to test the resistance of the packaging to accelerations and decelerations
  • drop testing to simulate both vertical and rotational drops of the load
  • and shock and vibration recording to generate a vibration or shock profile which can later be used in the design/optimization of the packaging

The medical and pharmaceutical industry is highly regulated and has international packaging standards that need to be followed. These standards ensure that the products are packaged and transported in a manner that ensures their safety and efficacy.

The international packaging standards for the medical and pharmaceutical industry are constantly evolving to keep up with changes in the industry and to ensure that the products are delivered safely and efficiently. But with the help of Safe Load Testing Technologies transport simulation equipment and adherence to packaging standards such as AST, ISTA, ISO, EUMOS and FMCSA, the medical and pharmaceutical industry can continue to provide safe and effective products to the end-users.
