Case Studies of Medical Device Package Failures

WESTPAK presents a webinar focused on medical device package failures and avoidance strategies. The information provided is designed to share knowledge and experience to help you understand the failures observed during package testing, their likely origins, and steps you can take to prevent the defects in your products.

The case studies reviewed include package failures observed following common test lab inputs including aging, manual handling, concentrated impact, compression, vibration, gross leak detection, and more.

Presenter Ms. Katie Tran reviews the package systems’ materials, designs, strengths, weaknesses, failure modes and suspected failure causes.

Alternative materials, product orientations, package design, manufacturing methods, and simple fixes to improve product quality, eliminate defects, and take away the test pain are offered.
