Innovation in medical device packaging and testing

From medical device packaging machines to advanced sterile barrier testing systems, Van der Stähl Scientific leads in innovation. Our patented systems are designed to help your company deliver your medical devices safe and sterile to the point of care.

When packaging matters

01 Medical

Advanced medical device packaging machines to ensure your device arrives to the point of care safe and sterile.

02 Testing

Keep your medical packaging program on track with accurate and easy-to-use medical pouch testing systems.

03 Laboratory

Machine calibrations and medical device pouch testing from certified technicians in our ISO-17025 Lab.

04 Hospitals

Hospitals now have access to the same high performance packaging and testing as medical device OEM’s.

Testing integration, the future of medical device packaging

Medical device packaging engineers agree that the pathway to compliant medical device packaging is through regular testing and inspection. With our patented MS-451-PV medical device pouch sealing machine, seal performance is verified with the onboard testing and inspection system.

Powerful medical device pouch testing and inspection

Rapid pouch testing

Fast load grips and sample alignment tool make testing accurate and easy. Our included specimen cutting template assures test sample consistency. Grips return to home position after testing.

A smarter system

Test your pouch at compliant speeds and start distance, and collect test data at 100 data points per second. Our spring check system verifies that the testing system is still running within calibration.

An eye on quality

The PTT-100-V incorporates a visual pouch inspection fixture to help identify seal failure. This patented VIU system help to identify possible seal failure by side lighting and magnification.

Your medical device pouch is not just packaging; it is an integral part of your medical device…

The sterile presentation of your medical device is equal to device efficaciousness. Stay compliant to the sterile barrier system requirements with better packaging machinery and market leading educated support. We are here to help you with our on-staff packaging engineer and our accredited IEC/ISO 17025 testing and calibration laboratory. Why risk a packaging recall due to inadequate machinery and uninformed support? We were founded over 23 years ago by a medical device technologist that developed micro-surgical instruments. We understand packaging validation, quality system management, cost control and distribution to hospitals and clinics. So partner with peers that can deliver your medical device safe and sterile to the point of care.

“High level of customer service by a group of technicians and sales staff that know their product.”

― MARY ANN GREENAWALT, DIRECTOR

Seal and print your medical device package in a single step

Simply feed the open end of your medical device pouch into the MD-850/880 conveyance system and the sealer will feed your pouch though dual-heated platens that are precisely controlled with the systems’ accurate control-board. After sealing, the MD-850/880 can print important data onto the pouch such as expiration and lot coding.

“Even the most efficacious medical devices can be rendered poisonous if sterility is compromised. Partner with vendors that share your commitment of total quality at every touchpoint. Let us help you deliver you device sterile to the point of care.”

―Charlie A. Webb, CPP Director of Quality

PTT-100-V Laboratory

A powerful medical device pouch testing device that integrates both testing and inspection into a single unit. On board testing data can be purged to a computer with included software via USB cord.

VIU Inspection

Enhance medical device seal inspection with the VIU system. Visual cues can be an important first step in identifying seal issues on your medical pouch. Contact our engineering group to learn more.

MS-451 Seal/Test

Our most feature rich system, this sealer is a complete packaging program in a single machine The MS-451 unit is not only an advanced medical pouch sealer it is also a complete testing laboratory.

VENDOR SUPPORT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE IN VALIDATION

Dye Penetration

Under our ISO/IEC-17025 scope of accreditation we can now perform dye penetration studies using the ASTM 1929 standard. We will provide you with 2 Dye Penetration reports that include a technician’s summary as well as photographs of the study for your records and a better packaging validation.

Performance Study

The ASTM F-88 tensile test is still the workhorse standard for understanding medical device pouch seal strength. We will perform a 30 specimen study on your pouches expressing the data to a plot graph as well as a histogram for interpretation. This is the most important study we perform in our lab.

Validation Support

Our founder comes from a surgical device background and understands the challenges facing medical device makers. Call and speak with our on-staff CPP and take advantage of all we have learned from over 20 years of sterile device packaging. Certified support from a team of dedicated professionals.

Range Calibration

The best medical device packaging validations are built on a machine calibration that explores the usable range of thermal performance. With our range calibration we will verify packaging machine compliance to set temperatures over 3 temperature settings. Stay compliant with better calibrations.

Force Calibration

The amount of force that is being applied to your pouch needs to be understood to develop a cogent medical device packaging validation. With our precision transducers and advanced meters, we can verify critical machine pressure. Our accredited laboratory will provide easy to read reporting.

Time Verification

When developing your DOE (design of experiments) it is vital that you understand the value of all measured attributes. With our laboratory developed system we can verify our machinery’s adherence to time set points. Understand all critical points on your packaging machinery for a solid validation.

Service Training

If you have one of our pouch sealers, then this course is for you. We cover the full spectrum of maintenance issues from inspection, parts replacement and machine adjustments. With this course, you will also have full access to our online Calibration and technician certification course.

Calibration Training

The final step in maintenance is machine calibration. Our calibration training will demonstrate how to select the proper meters and tools for your unique sealing machine. You will learn from our highly trained senior technicians as they guide you through each step in the calibration process.

Supporting Documents

A medical device validation is only as good as the verified documents that chronicles each step of the process. Our comprehensive support documents help you develop a needed audit trail for a medical packaging validation. Easy to understand and interpret, our documentation is just the support you need.

Deliver your medical devices sterile to the point of care

Why risk medical device sterility with inferior packaging machinery? Our line of packaging and testing machinery is designed to make certain that your devices arrive safely into the sterile field. The foundation of patent safely begins with efficacious medical devices that are delivered safe and sterile to the patient.
