DDL’s package testing services evaluate the strength and integrity of packaging systems before and after simulating the anticipated distribution and storage conditions that the systems may undergo. This combination of simulation and evaluation is used by packaging professionals to validate package compliance with ASTM, ISO, ISTA and other accepted industry standards.
DDL Package Testing services include:
• ISO 11607 Compliance Testing and Consulting
• Shelf-Life Studies/ Accelerated Aging
• Transportation / Distribution Simulation
• Sterile Barrier System Integrity & Strength Testing
• Thermal Package Performance Testing
• Package Stability Testing
DDL specializes in testing medical devices and combination products such as luer fittings, pre- filled syringes, needles, catheters, guidewires, cannulae and tracheal tubes. DDL tests to ANSI, ASTM, IEC, ISO, JIS, EN and other industry standards. Vibration, physical shock, thermal shock, friction, flow rate, force to operate, leakage and compression testing are among the many tests that are carried out and help medical device developers better understand their products. Custom test development and protocol creation are also provided.
As a complement to its package testing services, DDL also tests and evaluates the materials that make up the package itself. From tensile and tear testing of poly films and trays to applying compression and tension to packaging components, materials testing can increase an engineer’s understanding of available options, allowing for more informed design decisions. Processing variables, vendor changes, effects of aging, different sterilization treatments and material changes can be explored through material testing.
