Patient safety is always in the foreground.

Packaging solutions for medical products and equipment are decisive to ensuring patient safety - without compromising on security and materials used. From single-use products to implants - it is worth investigating and assessing the prequalification of your packaging solution at an early stage. MULTIVAC provides you with sound advice based on many years of experience. Our packaging experts will support you from initial development all the way through to the finished package.



MULTIVAC - flexible packaging solutions for medical products

The requirements placed on the packaging of medical products such as catheters, disposable products, laboratory supplies, suture material, implants, combination packs, surgical supplies and diagnostics are extremely high. The packaging has to ensure that your product is delivered to the "point of use" in the hospital, health center or patient - with absolute sterility. It also needs to be opened easily and reliably without the content becoming contaminated or particles becoming loose. Another key condition is that your medical products are protected reliably during transport and that the content maintains its impeccable quality even during long storage periods.

Packaging also plays a decisive role in the release process of medical products. Even if there is often little time for development, regulations and quality standards need to be observed. The right packaging can guarantee the highest level of safety for your medical products. A sterile barrier, seal seam quality, reproducible and traceable processes, and correct labeling and marking, among many other measures, are the requirements that make it essential to consult with us at an early stage and develop your customized packaging solution.

Our machines are designed for low-bacteria and low-particle packaging, and they always comply with the latest guidelines (EU, EMA, FDA, DIN, ISO).

MULTIVAC has been a reliable partner to its customers for more than 60 years. You can be sure that your individual requirements are always in the foreground.

Our engineers and process experts will support you with dedication and experience in the development of a customized and ideally suited concept for your products.


In close collaboration with you, a packaging design will be developed to meet complex product requirements, and until a customized pack design is a perfect fit for your medical product. With 3D visualization and sample productions, and taking into account all output requirements, we will develop the best packaging for your product.

Based on the specification document and in close collaboration with you, we will develop a customized line concept for you, along with all required line and format drawings. In many cases, several possible concept alternatives will be developed and discussed with you in a presentation.


Implementation

MULTIVAC will accompany you throughout the technical implementation and finetuning of your packaging process. We can support you worldwide with expertise and precision, ensuring the smooth implementation of your individual machine and line solutions.


From the initial idea to the first test run - an expert and highly experienced project team will be at your side during the implementation of your packaging solution. A team that will accompany you from the first evaluation to the final completion of the packaging project.

MULTIVAC offers packaging solutions for various levels of automation, from manual systems and semi-automatic machines to fully integrated packaging lines. We manufacture our own automation, converging and transport systems, as well as marking and quality inspection solutions, so that we can offer you end-to-end concepts for maximum productivity. We adapt flexibly to your requirements and, if required, can support you in integrating components from other manufacturers into your line concept.

We offer comprehensive training courses, either at our worldwide Training Centers or with you on site, so that you can become familiar with the operation, servicing and care of your machines. Training is hands-on and carried out right at the machine. You will also receive all written training material. This allows you to fully exploit the potential of your new MULTIVAC packaging solution.

MULTIVAC will support you in the areas of process validation, calibration and documentation.
