Bemis Healthcare Packaging recently launched Insura™, an innovative seal verification technology designed specifically for medical device packaging. This technology is a real-time, non-destructive visual indicator of seal quality that is imbedded into the sterile barrier system. A blue color is generated under only proper seal conditions—chemistry, heat and intimate contact.
Bemis collaborated with its customers to understanding their needs in this quality-driven market, leading to the development of what it describes as a game-changing technology.
Successfully engineering this technology platform was enabled by Bemis’s material science expertise. Some key developments include the following:
• The blue color is generated during the sealing process as a result of the combinatory chemistry added to the packaging substrates.
• The blue color intensity correlates to seal strength and can help identify defects. Measurement can be taken in real time to confirm seals are in specification.
• Through ETO sterilization the color is reversed, providing no visual difference to the end user.
