Validation Of Medical Packagings
SERCOVAM carries out validation of medical devices’ packagings as blister packs, bags… according to ISO 11607 to satisfy the requirements of the European pharmacopeia. Tests of sealing resistance according to NF EN 868-5, tests of integrity according to ASTM F1929 and tests of peeling allow validate the conformity of a sterile barrier packaging. Moreover, SERCOVAM’s laboratories own more than 100 climatic chambers to carry out accelerated ageing tests of sterile medical device packages according to ASTM F1980. On the other hand, SERCOVAM’s physical-chemical laboratory performs permeability tests to determine transmission rate of water vapour or saturated vapour of certain fluids according to ISO 2528 or American pharmacopeia (USP) on pillboxes, films or other packagings. A know-how acquired for 20 years allows SERCOVAM to carry out all these tests in a very short term and with a concern of permanent quality.
