Vacuum packing of surgical instruments

When it comes to preserving the integritysurgical instruments there are extra packaging requirements for hospitals.

Preserving the integrity of supplies

A hospital takes extreme measures to protect patients, staff, and visitors, but unfortunately almost every item in a hospital has the potential for germs and contamination.  

From door knobs to dixie cups, hospital staff must always go the extra mile to ensure that such items are kept clean and sterile. In a hospital setting, all levels of sanitation are important; however, some require a greater level of purity than others. When it comes to preserving the integrity of tools like surgical instruments, hospitals must take extra steps in protection. Such steps should guarantee cleanliness and sterility. With this in mind, how should a hospital perform surgical instrument packaging?

Theodore is responsible for the Life Science & Healthcare division at Audion and therefore the ideal person to perform these demonstrations. All our machines meet the standards and conditions set by our medical and pharmaceutical markets. That is why our machines can add value to your packaging process, especially now that COVID-19 is putting more pressure on the medical world. Theodore shows you how, by vacuum packing and sealing a medical instrument as an example.

“We are in the calibration room at Audion Packaging Machines and this is our VMS 163 B. Our validatable vacuum chamber. This machine has bi-active 8 mm impulse seal bars as special feature. The machine is particularly well suited for creating a deep vacuum and is equipped with advanced software. The software allows you to control and monitor the various critical parameters in your process, such as the pressure in the vacuum chamber. These data can also be saved and you can give access to different users with various rights by using passwords. Our validatable vacuum chambers are available as a table model and as a floor model.

Benefits of vacuum packing

  • Removes Air - keeps tools dry and free from bacteria growth which is critical.
  • Preserves Integrity – keeps tools free from contaminants, such as dirt, mold, germs and improper handling.
  • Moisture Protection – protects against accidental spills in fast-paced fast hospital settings.
  • Fast Process – vacuum sealing with the proper machine and materials is a very quick and efficient method of packaging instruments.
  • Tamper Evident – staff can see when the integrity of the product seal has been broken and compromised.
