Let’s explore the reason to choose Van der Stähl Scientific
Van der Stähl Scientific offers only the most technologically advanced packaging equipment; microprocessor controlled and designed to meet the rigors of the ISO 11607. But more than just the ability to meet the regulatory requirements for sterile packaging, our machines are built on a robust architecture that assures decades of dependable use.
We have had machinery, such as our MS-350, come into our service center operating perfectly, and these sealers have been in production for nearly 20 years. These sealers have literally created several million seals during their long life. We are astonished by how well these machines hold up; machines that are 15 years old perform just as they did the day they were liberated from their corrugated box.
Our goal is to also provide machine systems that utilize a minimal amount of mechanical componentry. Fewer parts mean fewer failures. The Van der Stähl Scientific machines that we offer are known throughout the industry as reliable workhorses.
We honestly do not know of another machine in our industry with such stellar performance. When you look at the cost of ownership matrix for our machinery the results are nothing short of stunning. Count on durable, long-performing machines from Van der Stähl Scientific.
Also, with machines such as our MS 350, the sealer function can be actuated in a number of ways – either through the hand switch if it’s more ergonomic for the worker, or with a foot switch. The system can even be put in a semi-automated mode, in this mode of operation the operator is not required by any biomechanical action to activate the sealing jaws. The system timer can be set to automatically invoke the cycle at predetermined increments, this function can also pace workflow.
Having a certified technologist that is completely up to speed on the latest issues surrounding medical device packaging is an incredible benefit to your company. Van der Stähl Scientific works with thousands of engineers doing the very same job as you. We understand the regulatory climate that our machines will be involved in each day. This peer-style support helps to assure that the person at the other end of the phone can provide you valuable insight from the collective brain trust of the sterile device packaging community.
Our tech support is available Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm through our toll free support line (800) 550-3854. When calling, select Option 3 and we’ll get your complicated questions answered quickly. For requests that are not time sensitive, you can also reach us through our contact form.

At Van der Stähl Scientific, count on competent parts support. Van der Stähl Scientific is legendary for our ability to ship product in an expedited manner.

We believe quite simply that providing exceptional customer service should not come with a fee. If we have the part in stock and we’re able to calibrate your machine, we’re ready to ship.
Just recently we had a customer who has several of our MS 350 medical pouch sealers who had an urgent run and needed a machine right away. Their goal was to get a machine in their cleanroom in a week in order to make up for lost time. They called us at approximately 11 a.m. and by 3 p.m. we had a calibrated machine on our docks, ready to ship to our waiting customer for next day arrival. We keep a solid buffer inventory of all of our popular machines in order to quickly perform for our valued customers.
With our new packaging systems in development, that will vacuum and burst test sterile pouches, we will be forging new paths that will have a ripple effect throughout sterile device packaging. Stay tuned for more exciting new technologies from Van der Stähl Scientific.
