Seal and Print
In-process printing is a great way to add compliant pouch information, such as expiration dating and lot traceability numbers.
In a single step, the MD-850 and MD-880 medical pouch sealers can also put compliant printing on the non-sterile side of the seal. Font size can be adjusted in order to accomodate smaller pouch widths. The system uses a dot-matrix printer head and prints on the TyVek side of the pouch for long-lasting printed image.
As the industry seems to move to an individual workstation solution for medical packaging, the MD-850 is an excellent response. Medical device companies have suffered the perils of a single, monolithic packaging machine and are now seeing the logic behind standalone workstations (blog post). Read our blog posts and learn more about what's trending in sterile device packaging standalone workstations. Efficiency has never been more important in order to manage costs in healthcare devices. To request a printed and sealed sample of your pouch, contact customer service at 800-550-3854. Learn More
A Better View
A human eye is an incredible machine. Despite our incredible computer and sensor technologies, we can’t even begin to touch the surface of the human eye’s amazing capabilities.
It has a 200 degree viewing angle, can see 2.7 million colors and has a possible contrast ratio of about 1,000,000 to 1. The eye is the ultimate inspection device, and yet we seem to lean away from the human eye’s capability to other empirical data portals. In the medical device packaging industry, inspection and monitoring are king. In order for us to be certain that the medical devices that we cocoon to market are kept viable and efficacious, we need to use all tools available in science. Remember, the Viu unit now comes with a free download of our helper app that is available for your iPhone or Android device. Learn More
The medical device industry has become very dynamic. As the industry moves quickly with emerging medical device technologies, regulatory agencies are also rapidly moving to respond.
Van der Stahl Scientific keeps a close eye to sterile device packaging and provides insights on our medical packaging blog. Visit our blog regularly to gain a clear perspective of current happenings in the sterile device packaging industry. Meet Jennifer Dean, our blog editor. She, along with our engineering group, contributes to our expanding blog. This year, the sterile device packaging blog will include additional issues outside of sterile packaging that relate to medical device manufacturing. We will also be investigating medical device manufacturing trends and other peripheral issues surrounding sterile packaging. We will be inviting other industry experts to chime in on other issues, such as sterile device pouch testing in order to provide a well-rounded view of our industrial topics. As always, we invite all of our readers to comment on the blog as your feedback strengthens the value of this thread. Learn More
