More ways to support your medical packaging plan

Great ideas continue to emerge from our innovative sterile packaging group, like our all new patent pending HTIP system (human tissue isolation pouch). This containment system was developed to help our customers avoid packaging machine contamination when processing and packaging human tissue. Our seal-through HTIP system isolates your process to help thwart cross contamination between donor events.

More Medical Packaging Support Products

Below you will find an expanding collection of products designed to enhance your sterile device packaging program. From safety guards to dry-well calibrated test leads, our goal is to put the right tools in the hands of packaging engineers. Medical device packaging can be a frustrating process if not supported by the most compliant machinery and peripherals. We invite you to have a look below and explore how our innovative line of accessories may help you strengthen your medical device packaging validation.

Calibration Test Lead

The MS-110 thermocouple is a test lead designed for use with all impulse sealers that are sold by Van der Stahl Scientific. The MS-110 ribbon style thermocouple has been designed to accurately gather thermal data from the sealing platen without damaging the sealing surface of the heat sealer under test. Each MS-110 is individually verified in a calibrated dry well at three to five static temperatures in our accredited lab to ensure that the MS-110 is reading accurately before shipping.

MSSP-1 Safety Plate

MSSP-1 Safety Plate

For our MS-350 customers that want additional safety beyond our highly effective safety system that features our position sensing micro-switch and our dual stage pressure solenoid, we have created a bolt on restriction plate to meet their expanded need. Our MSSP-1 safety plate is a simple but effective plate that screws into place in a few moments and reduces access to the sealing jaws. Built out of robust stainless steel to withstand hard use and aggressive antimicrobial wipe downs.

SPC-2 Specimen Cutter

Tensile/peel testing your sealed pouches is an effective way of monitoring your packaging machines performance and avoid a potential creep in your seal value. However, cutting your samples with a razor knife is time consuming and poses a safety risk. With our all new SPC-2 pouch specimen cutter, you can quickly and safely prepare test samples faster and easier to encourages regular testing. The SPC-2 cutter creates a 1” pouch specimen so you can quickly perform the ASTM f-88 tensile test.

Contamination Barrier

When processing human tissue, cross contamination is an always present threat. With our patent pending HTIP system (human tissue isolation pouch) our customers can avoid packaging machine contamination. Our seal-through HTIP system isolates your process to help thwart cross contamination between donor events. This system greatly helps prevent machine contamination and increases packaging machine component life cycles, saving money while managing infection risks to donor recipients.

Calibration test lead

Visual Inspection

The VIU can be placed in your cleanroom at the point of packaging to encourage the regular visual inspection of your medical device pouch seals. Our patented low angle lighting source casts a light wash over the sealed area of the pouch to better reveal peaks on the sealed surface that could indicate a seal risk. Gazing through the lens the operator moves the pouch side to side to better invoke lighting that may provide clues to other pouch issues such as channels or bonding problems.

Tensile Testing

The PTT-100- V is an invaluable medical device packaging laboratory designed to keep your packaging validation on track. This amazing system incorporates a host of features to assure your testing results are sound. Our “Spring Check” system allows quality teams to check the load cell to verify that the machine is running as expected between calibration cycles. Our “Quick load” grips require only a quarter turn to tighten, and the paddle style handles create maximum user ergonomics.

Calibration test lead

Seal Dye Testing

With the DP-150 test kit the dye solution is ready to go right out of the bottle and with the included reference guide you can quickly identify and evaluate a seal failure. The DP-150 kit is small and portable so additional kits can be purchased for company wide access to encourage pouch performance testing at your facility. Stay compliant, test and inspect the seal quality of your medical pouches for a more confident sterile packaging program. The DP-150 is in stock and ready to ship.
