Pouches

Through our quality, custom-to-order system, we provide our customers the exact pouches they need on time and on budget.

Our pouches can be puncture resistant and fit your precise sterilization and material requirements. We can couple them with custom engineering and superior adhesives like Xhale® and SealScience® to deliver the quality packaging you expect. Our pouches hold pharmaceutical and medical device products such as:

  • Implants
  • Catheters
  • Tubing sets
  • Wound care
  • Medical and surgical instrument trays
  • Components
  • Diagnostic instruments
  • Other medical instruments and devices

Our pouches are peelable, can be torn or cut open, are puncture resistant, and have pockets. And when you want a foil pouch, but you sterilize via EtO or steam, we have Dispos-a-vent®. We have, or will customize, the right flexible packaging solution for your medical device and pharmaceutical needs.

Peelable Pouches

Features Demonstration
Features & Benefits

Our pouches peel open cleanly and easily. They can be die-cut or perforated, or puncture resistant to withstand the rigors of sterilization, distribution, storage and use.

  • Pocket pouch, features an external sleeve which can be used for printed inserts, such as IFU’s (Instructions For Use), test results, client records or other non-sterile components
  • Ostasis™ reinforced pouch, a sturdy package that can provide protection against pin-holing and film fracturing created by blister trays or heavy and bulky devices
Pouch Materials
  • Tyvek®
  • Ovantex®
  • Papers
  • Films
  • Foils
Sterilization Methods
  • Radiation
  • Autoclave (Steam)
  • EtO sterilization
  • Gamma
  • Electron Beam (e-beam)
Related Technologies

  • Xhale® DotCoat® hot melt adhesive for visual integrity check

Perforated Pouches

Perforated Pouches
Features & Benefits

Perforated pouches hold several different variations (size, compatibility, etc.) of a device, each in separate sterile barrier pouches, but all grouped together.

  • Reduce waste when a healthcare practitioner has several different device variations available in the operating room, yet opens only the device needed without compromising the sterility of the others.
  • Separate the pouch containing needed unit from the other pouches without introducing particulate into the OR due to the low linting properties of Tyvek®.
  • Ease OR prep with strip of pouches containing all available device variations, ensuring the right size is available for use in the OR when needed.
  • Optimize processing by sealing multiple pouches in one cycle.
Pouch Materials

Perforated pouches are comprised of one side of medical grade Tyvek®, Ovantex® or paper and specifiable films, such as nylon or Pet/PE.

We also offer AlOx barrier film pouches, which prolong product shelf life and allow for visual device inspection. AlOx barrier films are available as an aluminum oxide coated PET lamination for tear-open pouches, or an aluminum oxide coated PET lamination with 2 mil sealant layer for peelable pouches.
