UDI Labeling - Firm Helps With Medical Device Packaging

Recently it was announced that a West Michigan consulting firm located in Kentwood would assist medical device manufacturers in maintaining compliance with federal regulations, which seem to be getting tougher by the day.  The consulting firm, Packaging Compliance Labs, helps these manufacturers by working with them to make certain that both the sterile packaging used in manufacturing the products as well as the packaging equipment meet FDA criteria.

 
Matt Lapham, President of Packaging Compliance Labs, said that small to medium size companies typically do not have the expertise when it comes to the complexities of packaging while maintaining cost effectiveness and accomplishing U.S. Food and Drug Administration requirements.  
 
One example of the work Packaging Compliance Labs does with medical device manufacturers is that of Kalamazoo-based Keystone Solutions Group, who needed assistance locating a form-filling packaging machine that would comply with federal regulations.  Packaging Compliance Labs' vice president, Ryan Erickson, traveled to Germany to inspect this equipment, then helped Keystone in the setup and testing phases to ensure compliance.  
 
Packaging Compliance also performs a battery of tests on sterile medical device packaging to ensure companies meet federal standards for sterility.  Some of these tests include tensile strength and accelerated aging.  
 
Many medical device manufacturers are outsourcing the testing of their packaging machines and packaging, leaving the challenging job of meeting federal standards to the experts.  As the FDA cracks down on packaging efforts, companies like Packaging Compliance Labs will be there to help SMBs "make the grade."
 
At Markem-Imaje, we know the challenges medical device manufacturers face today often seem overwhelming, to put it mildly.  We help to make at least one aspect of the job easier!  Our coding and marking solutions for pharmaceuticals integrate easily into your existing production lines, and provide clear, reliable marking.  Markem-Imaje is also helping clients with UDI labeling and compliance; if you're a medical device manufacturer, we can help.
