Cryopak’s Product Testing Department assists manufacturers and engineers in a variety of industries by testing product performance and safety. Specializing in testing of medical devices such as Luer fittings, syringes, needles, catheters, guidewires, cannulae and electrosurgical instruments, this division tests to ASTM, IEC, ISO, JIS, EN and other accepted industry standards. Vibration, physical shock, thermal shock, friction, flow rate, force to operate, leakage and compression testing are among the many tests that can be carried out to help medical device developers better understand their product. Custom test development and protocol creation can also be provided.
Companies in a variety of industries use our wide range of testing services for one-stop package, product and materials testing in order to prepare for regulatory agency submission.
To complement its package testing, Cryopak’s Materials Testing Department takes design understanding to a deeper level by testing and evaluating the materials that make up the package itself. From tensile and tear testing of poly films and trays to applying compression and tension to packaging components, materials testing can increase a packaging engineer’s understanding of available options, allowing for more informed design decisions.
Processing variables, vendor changes, effects of aging, different sterilization treatments and material changes can be explored through material testing. The engineering staff at Cryopak has a thorough understanding of today’s test standards and the principles behind them.
