Q1 Productions Medical Device Packaging Conference

The Medical Device Packaging Conference is an annual event showcasing the latest in medical device packaging design along with addressing the current concerns of packaging engineers through case studies, panel discussions and end user small group feedback. The conference provides attendees the opportunity to discuss how user feedback, testing studies and new innovative materials can be leveraged to optimize medical device packaging design.

At this year’s conference, we will bring together key material suppliers and experienced medical packaging design engineers for a panel discussion. “Choosing Cost Effective and Innovative Packaging Material” will provide insight into the inventive materials top medical device manufacturers are using to package their products:

Medical device manufacturers need to develop packaging that not only protects and sterilizes a product but also satisfies end-user desires to maintain competitiveness within a market. Packaging engineers must carefully analyze the properties of various foams, films and plastics to select the best material combinations for a product. Several factors including budget, a medical device’s components, shape and size along with expected handling and use are crucial factors when determining appropriate packaging materials. This panel discussion will examine various packaging materials that have been validated and approved to highlight new material options and combinations available for engineers.

- Examining name brand vs. generic packaging materials
- Identifying innovative packaging material suppliers
- Lessons learned through combination trial and error
