EZ MedPak

A compact, lab scale package development machine that has been designed specifically for the medical device market where sterility maintenance and barrier protection against microbial penetration is required.

Function

EZ MedPak enables R&D labs to control, design, create and manufacture product specific packaging in a lab environment, without the need to outsource package production.  The unit is capable of handling most medical device packaging and lidding materials such as PETG, Alluminium, PVC, Peelable, Paper backed and Tyvek.

Our package design experts can design bespoke product tooling that enables clients to showcase their products to the maximum potential.

  • Auto safety cut-off via light curtain
 *Tooling and material dependent


Modified Atmosphere Pack (MAP) (Optional)

MAP option allows packs to be flushed 100% with gas as specified by client.  Flushing can be configured for set times and pressure levels.

Benefits

More control for R&D labs

  • Bring your packing in-house instead of booking time on production lines or outsourcing to a third party – minimises delays and shortens time to market for new products

  • Every day saved in the development stage is a day of extra profits in the marketplace

Flexible pack design

  • Blister pack using a variety of materials, novel shapes, sizes or perforations with a depth down to 25mm - allows the full range of possibilities to be explored for pack development in the R&D lab

  • Offers increased flexibility to contract packers

High quality packages

  • Reproducible, production quality packaging

  • Fast & easy set-up – no specialist knowledge is required to operate EZ MedPak so there is no need for an engineer to be present

Compact, portable design

  • Table top design for convenient blister packaging

Reduce time

  • Sepha can design your new packs. This is especially useful for customers who are involved in stability trials and package development. We can advise them how to rationalise the number of different tools needed, even if the lab needs to package many different products

  • Fast turnaround to tool-up for new products, faster than outsourcing small batches to a contract packer

More economical for batches up to 20,000 units

  • Fully cGMP, so it is quick to clean – requires 5 minutes

  • Fast 2 minute changeover - reduces down-time between production batches

Application

Applications include:

  • Pre-filled syringes
  • Diagnostic devices
  • Surgical stents
  • Inhalation devices
  • Dental implants
  • Medical tray kits
