    Accelerated Ageing

    Accelerated ageing is used to simulate real shelf-life ageing and is therefore conducted to validate shelf-life claims. It is carried out according to ASTM F1980 Standard Guide for Accelerated Aging of Sterile Medical Device Packages.. Read more on Accelerated Ageing...

    Seal Strength & Integrity

    All sterile medical devices require validation of their packaging. The sterile barrier must be shown to be effective throughout the product's claimed shelf-life. Examination of materials, processes and stability all contribute to demonstrating that the sterilisation process is effective and that sterility is maintained..

Medical Device Packaging Testing

Packaging forms an integral and very important part of all sterile medical devices. CE technical files and FDA submissions both require testing to ISO 11607-1:2006 Packaging for terminally sterilized medical devices. This is why medical device packaging testing is so important.


MET offer comprehensive medical device packaging testing to support engineers with the validation of medical pouches and blisters and shelf-life claims for all classes of devices. Our facilities include an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory, dedicated accelerated aging ovens and sophisticated burst, leak and tensile testing equipment. We also undertake transit simulation studies to assess the suitability of shipping cartons or single boxes in protecting products within. Find out more about the kinds of medical device packaging testing we offer below.
