Packaging and sterilisation – crucial for safe medical devices


In addition to production that meets all requirements, appropriate packaging is also indispensable. Samaplast meets all requirements here as well: We package medical devices in such a way that they meet the legal requirements until they are used and throughout their entire shelf-life.

Packaging

Packaging that does not alter the product


Packaging lies at the end of the production line for medical devices. We package them in such a way that their application characteristics and capabilities do not change during the entire life cycle.
