DDL Annouces the date of their Spring Medical Device Packaging Seminar

DDL, the leader in medical device package, product and material testing, has confirmed that it will host its 3rd Medical Device Packaging Seminar on Thursday, May 5th at its Fountain Valley, California location.

"This will be our first seminar in California and we're really excited about the opportunity of opening up our facility to attendees," John Koch, Lab Manager at DDL West, said.

The seminar will take place from 9:30 am - 3:00 pm and will include both seminar presentations and an interactive learning workshop on test methods.

"The program will cover similar topics to what was discussed at our fall seminar held in Minneapolis, MN. The seminar and interactive workshops are intended for medical device packaging engineers, supply chain managers, product engineers, and quality professionals. Scott Levy, Packaging Engineer said. "The material for our May seminar has been revised in response to what our fall attendees indicated as well as to reflect what the industry is doing today."

The one day program will focus on topics ranging from distribution simulation for the medical device industry to regulatory compliance and ISO 17025. The program will be presented by, DDL Packaging Engineer, Scott Levy, DDL's Quality Assurance Manager, Kim Pratt and DDL's Operations Director, Corey Hensel.

"A major addition, which we also added to our fall seminar, were the interactive workshops lead by DDL's project managers," Hensel said. We love the opportunity to give our guests firsthand experience on the integrity testing processes that take place during test method validation."

The workshops will include demonstrations of;

- ASTM F88 - Peel Seal Testing
- ASTM F2096 - Bubble Leak Testing
- ASTM F1929 - Dye Leak Testing
- ASTM F1886 - Visual Inspection Testing

The most beneficial part of DDL's seminar, however, is the opportunity for clients and prospective customers to sit down and talk with DDL's lead packaging engineer Scott Levy. Levy has been in the packaging industry for over 15 years. He specializes in helping medical device manufacturers comply with ISO 11607 and other industry standards. He is also able to consult with clients on package failures when needed.

"We are very excited to open our doors at our Fountain Valley facility and give attendees an opportunity to expand their knowledge on distribution testing, validation and quality," Pat Nolan, President of DDL, said

The seminar, which is scheduled for May 5, 2011, will be held at DDL's West coast location in Fountain Valley, CA and will feature lunch for all attendees as well as great door prizes, such as an iPad!
