Before designing medical device packaging, explore your options

By Lisa McTigue Pierce in Medical Packaging on June 04, 2019

What are your top concerns when it comes to designing packaging for medical devices? Speed to market? Efficient aseptic transfer? User experience? An upcoming free webinar will share tips on how to best engineer your package for today’s medical device landscape.

On June 18 at 10:00 a.m. eastern time, experts from Oliver Healthcare Packaging will share tips on creating packages that not only protect the device, but also mitigate risk and improve user experience.

Presenters Jeremy Elwell, senior principal engineer, and Kevin Fisher, technical manager, from Oliver Healthcare Packaging, have more than two decades of experience in the design and manufacture of packaging for medical devices, including many years spent working at major medical device manufacturers.

Understanding and analyzing packaging options might be the biggest challenge facing packaging designers now in the medical device industry. Elwell and Fisher will explain how to “rightsize” a package for the application—that is, how to create the proper size, and how to select the appropriate material and packaging components.

These Oliver packaging specialists will also bust a couple myths in the one-hour webinar. For example, a common misconception is that a thicker pouch film is always better. However, packaging engineers need to know that “some protection properties do increase with thicker pouch film, but not all,” Elwell says.
