Medical Device Packaging
The packaging of medical devices and supplies such as test kits for doctor’s offices, blood supplies, instruments, and containers presents a challenge for sterilization, preservation, and extended shelf life. Sterile packaging is a crucial factor for medical technology and devices, but the packaging must also be optimal for transportation, storage, and end use.
Nitrogen, a clean, dry, inert gas, may be applied during medical device packaging to eliminate the presence of oxygen. If oxygen comes into contact with perishable medical supplies, it may affect the nature of the product as well as any test results associated with it.
A safe and reliable way to administer N2 gas for medical packaging is through the use of a nitrogen generator. A nitrogen generator is cost effective, easily manageable, produces high purity N2 gas on-site and on-demand, and won’t ever run out of gas. Using a simple PSA generator or membrane generator technology, a nitrogen generator is the best solution for sterile medical device packaging.
