Often, when designing or considering the manufacturing process for a medical device, there’s one element that often gets left until the last minute: the medical device packaging. There are so many other steps to worry about, figuring out the packaging can get lost. However, the right packaging used can reduce costs, potentially optimize the sterilization process, and aid in the manufacturing process.
Not considering the packaging early on can lead to production delays, increased costs to both manufacturers and patients, and other issues.
Let’s look at medical device packaging and see when it should be considered, and why. With Flexan, our Flexacution method considers this part early on, and you can learn more about our process here.
