Title
(EN) PACKAGING METHOD TO ENABLE RE-STERILIZATION OF MEDICAL DEVICE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'EMBALLAGE PERMETTANT LA RESTÉRILISATION DE DISPOSITIFS MÉDICAUX
Abstract
(EN)
A method of packaging pre-filled medical devices is disclosed. The method comprises producing a packaging having a front panel and a back panel defining a compartment capable of holding one or more medical devices wherein at least one of the front panel or top panel has a portion containing a gas permeable material while the remaining portion of the pouch is gas impermeable. This gas permeable material allows gas to pass through the material and contact the one or more articles contained within the compartment or allows gas to pass through the gas permeable material from the inside of the compartment to the outside of the container. Upon completion of sterilization, the pouch is sealed and the gas permeable portion is cut away leaving the sterilized medical device enclosed in a completely gas impermeable pouch.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé d'emballage de dispositifs médicaux pré-remplis. Le procédé consiste à produire un emballage présentant un panneau avant et un panneau arrière qui définissent un compartiment pouvant loger un ou plusieurs dispositifs médicaux, le panneau avant et/ou le panneau supérieur présentant une partie contenant un matériau perméable au gaz, tandis que la partie restante du sachet est imperméable au gaz. Ce matériau perméable au gaz permet au gaz de traverser le matériau et d'entrer en contact avec le ou les articles contenus à l'intérieur du compartiment, ou permet au gaz de traverser le matériau perméable au gaz de l'intérieur du compartiment vers l'extérieur du récipient. Un fois la stérilisation terminée, le sachet est scellé et la partie perméable au gaz est découpée, et le dispositif médical stérilisé reste enfermé dans un sachet entièrement imperméable au gaz.
