Newly Accredited Packaging Testing

Empirical Technologies is thrilled to announce our new ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation to perform packaging testing for medical devices. The journey from manufacturer to patient is fraught with risks for medical devices. From rough handling to heavy vibrations during transport, there are many opportunities for critical devices and their protective packaging to be compromised. Manufacturers must ensure their packaging meets quality, safety, and functional requirements to avoid potential waste, resource loss, and especially threats to patient safety.
