RECENT NEWS

New Laboratory Standard

Our laboratory is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited and now that this exacting standard has been upgraded to the new ISO/IEC 17025:2017  we will meet these new requirements with our usual vigor. The vision of the changes within the revised ISO/IEC 17025:2017 is “risk assessment and management”. We have always evaluated our laboratory functions in two ways, first is a focus to repeatable outcomes and second, is the risk to process. You can count on our laboratory always staying current on regulatory changes to better service our medical device manufacturer customers.

Onsite Calibration and Service

Our laboratory manager Cord Burnham has been really racking up the frequent flyer miles this past month. Many of our customers prefer to have their medical device packaging machine calibrated and serviced in place at their facility. We can provide the same accredited calibrations at your facility in order to thwart potential machine damaged caused by shipping. Also, we provide onsite machine service and repair in order to keep your packaging machines working like new. We also can provide machine service and calibration training to your personnel, and through our certificate program technicians will be able to maintain your equipment between service and calibration cycles. We are just a phone call away, and we deliver…

Six Sigma Training

Laboratory management is centered around systems that engender repeatable outcomes. The Six Sigma framework helps us build a program that gives our customers the accuracy they seek from our laboratory. Our quality manager Charlie A. Webb CPP is a Six Sigma Master black belt and he oversees our Six Sigma program. In order to best assure repeatable results in our Laboratory, Charlie requires green Belt certification for all of our Laboratory employees. All of our customers benefit through our Six Sigma training, another way we serve our customer.

Simplified Calibration

Our medical device manufacturing customers have very specific needs when it comes to machine calibrations. This year we have simplified the machine calibration process by creating a 5 option calibration menu to meet the unique needs of our customer’s sterile device validation plan. Depending on the model of your sealer and your IQ (installation qualification) requirements you can select the most basic plan or choose a comprehensive calibration that even includes pouch testing in our ISO-17025 empirical laboratory. We invite you to take a peek at these plans by simply following this link.
