Sterile Medical Device Packaging Q&A
Asked November 2nd, 2012
Tyvek is a breathable microbial barrier so pressure differences such as high altitude shipping will not affect the package. Foil, however, is not breathable, so you will want to test the package at low pressure. One key is to keep any head space inside the package to a minimum if you don’t have a breathable lid.
Shipping product bulk in a box is certainly a normal way to distribute your product. Regardless of how you decide to pack the product, simulating your distribution cycle is necessary.
