Contract Packaging of Single-Use Surgical Kits

A Turnkey Medical Device Outsourcing Partner for Single-Use Medical Devices

Sterile Medical Device Contract Packaging

J-Pac Medical is the complete outsourcing partner for all your sterile medical device assembly, packaging, and sterilization.

J-Pac manufactures single-use, Class II & III sterile medical devices including, surgical devices, implantable textiles, and diagnostic consumables for both large and small OEMs. We manage your product realization through a robust ISO 13485 Quality Management System, giving you a complete medical device contract manufacturing solution.

The Right Medical Device Outsourcing Partner from Start to Finish

J-Pac recognizes that you are challenged to develop better products, achieve faster time-to-market, and lower total cost. Yet your resources are becoming more limited, requiring you to do more with less.

The back-end product realization processes required to launch a medical device are the single biggest cause of delays because they require complex and highly regulated processes that take more time than expected.

J-Pac’s medical device outsourcing model results in faster and less expensive product launches by executing the backend headaches of package design, sterilization validation, shelf life testing, and manufacturing scale-up in parallel to product design.

A Better Outsourcing Model for Better Results

Our expertise is in the back-end of product development. We know what needs to be done, how long it will take, and how it can be best integrates with your design process to reduce time and costs.

Dependable | Trustworthy | High Quality

FAQs

Learn more about medical device packaging, validation, and design by reading a few of the most common questions we hear from our customers.

Should the medical device packaging performance qualification (distribution simulation) be done at the same time as the product stability study?

Package Seal Test

Package Seal Test

Pull test of a medical package seal to evaluate the strength and integrity of the seal.    

No. ISO 11607-1 Section 6.4.4 indicates that stability testing and performance testing are separate entities.

Stability testing is testing the sterile barrier system. The stability test will demonstrate the shelf life of the sterile barrier irrespective of what is inside the package.

Performance testing is testing how the packaging system responds to shipping and handling stresses. The performance test must demonstrate that expected shipping stresses do not compromise the sterile barrier.

How do you validate medical device packaging?

Pre-validated, Double Barrier Packaging

Pre-validated, Double Barrier Packaging

Pre-validated nested double barrier packaging with custom urethane insert.

Packaging validation is complex. There are several processes that must be completed

  1. The manufacturing process to produce the packaging’s sterile barrier system must be validated. This requires an Installation Qualification (IQ), Operational Qualification (OQ), and Performance Qualification (PQ) to be conducted on the manufacturing equipment.
  2. Packaging performance testing must be completed. This includes manufacturing and sterilizing under worst-case conditions and subjecting the packaging system to simulated distribution testing.
  3. A stability study must be completed and is typically done with both accelerated and real-time aging studies.
  4. Both the performance testing and stability study require tests for seal integrity and seal strength as well as an evaluation of product protection.

Are microbial challenges required for medical device packaging validation?

Pouch card packaging for spinal implants

There is no universally accepted method of demonstrating microbial barrier properties, although there are efforts to address this that may eventually be incorporated into the standard. The part 1 standard section 5.2.2 indicates only that the microbial barrier requirement can be demonstrated by showing the material is impermeable. Annex C requires that impermeable materials for sterile barrier systems shall be tested for air permeance in accordance with ISO 5636-5. Other tests are noted in Annex B. In practice, demonstrating a sufficient microbial barrier is performed on the material itself by the raw material supplier and their test reports can be referenced in the MDM’s technical file.
