Medical Device Packaging: Custom Solutions, Advanced Medical Grade Materials
At UFP Technologies, we strive to design and develop quality solutions that address our customers' main concerns. In the medical device packaging space, this includes using materials that are compatible with autoclave and EtO sterilization and producing end products that offer sterile barrier protection along with puncture/abrasion resistance.
With decades of experience, access to an array of advanced medical grade materials, packaging design expertise and cleanroom fabrication capabilities we have the ability to provide custom packaging solutions for medical device manufacturers that meet the stringent requirements of the medical industry.
Our medical device packaging solutions are designed with the end user in mind. Whether you need visibility of the product within the packaging, embossed part numbers, or user friendly product extraction from the sterile barrier system, UFP has the knowledge and expertise to make it happen.
UFP Technologies has designed and manufactured packaging solutions for a variety of medical devices, including:
UFP Technologies has access to a vast amount of advanced medical grade materials. These materials are compatible with multiple sterilization methods and offer excellent puncture and abrasion resistance. Commonly used materials for medical device packaging include the following:
Medical foams – UFP Technologies has access to an array of medical grade closed-cell and open-cell foams, which are commonly used for surgical instrument packaging. Many of these foams are compatible with autoclave, EtO and gamma sterilization methods. We offer closed-cell foams that are manufactured with nitrogen to eliminate out-gassing allowing the packaging to be used in operating rooms and cleanroom environments.
Thermoplastic polyurethane films (TPU) – TPU is a durable plastic film that provides puncture and abrasion resistance. TPU meets USP Class VI standards for use with medical applications and is compatible with EtO and Gamma sterilization. Our FlexShield® TPU solutions are used for medical packaging, component, and product applications. Its durability and sterility lend itself to providing excellent protection for devices and patients.
UFP Technologies has manufacturing facilities throughout the country that are ISO 13485 certified and house ISO Class 8 (Class 100,000) and ISO Class 7 (Class 10,000) cleanroom facilities. UFP Technologies acts as an extension of our customers' R&D and engineering teams. We assist in the design of the packaging, select the proper materials and produce a unique innovative solution that is tailored to our customers' specific needs.
