Medical packaging is an important part of the distribution of materials, medication, and other medical products. Medical packaging corporations also take extra care to make sure that sterile packaging is a priority. A sterile environment can ensure that bacteria, and other damage does not affect the product. For example, a needle used to draw blood must be kept in sterile packaging until it is used, so that it does not contract any harmful allergens, dust, or bacteria and pass this on to the patient.
Plastic sterile packaging is very versatile because it gives medical supply companies the chance to contour the shape of the plastic to meet the needs of any product, regardless of its shape or size. In addition, it allows these companies to use die cut cards. These are produced using stable, high quality medical grade plastic, which ensures that the product is durable. These cards can be used in conjunction with sealing pills that are for one-time use. They can be placed in peel pouches to hold medical products in place for opening safety. The efficacy of die cut cards can also reduce the need for bulky, complicated, and more expensive medical packaging. Additionally, they can be radiation, ethylene oxide sterilized, and even autoclave sterilized as needed.
Making sure materials are packaged safely, with sanitation in mind, is a major part of distributing medical equipment to hospitals and other medical facilities. Die cut cards are a reliable, cost effective way to hold medical devices in place, unlike the SBS, solid-bleached sulphate, insert cards that have been used widely by packaging companies. The plastic in die cut cards can also be made from 100 percent recycled material, making them eco-friendly. With large numbers of medical supplies being shipped daily to medical facilities around the country, plastic packaging help cut costs, and provides a reliable way to secure vital medical products.
