Title: Panel: New Medical Packaging Research - Potential Contamination from Repetitive Handling on Sterile Packaging at Healthcare Facilities

Type: Medtech Session

Badge Type: Free Conference


Description

Groundbreaking research has shown there are limitations of sterile packaging through repetitive handling before point of use, not previously understood by manufacturers. After sterile items are obtained by a health care facility, they are handled numerous times before being used.  This repetitive handling may be due to items being selected for a patient procedure (i.e., case cart), not used, then returned and placed back into storage bins. The effects of this repetitive handling on the sterile integrity of the package have not been scientifically studied until now. This research team, derived from the 2019 Kilmer Conference, researched the effects that repetitive handling have on a sterile package in a healthcare setting. Join industry experts on a panel who will share this important work. Topics include:

  • Discussion of the importance of maintaining the sterile integrity of packaging
  • Detail of the repetitive handling research
  • Sharing of outcomes and results of the repetitive handling research
