A new standard in medical device packaging optimizes device protection, improves size and cost economy while using less packaging material.
In today's ever-evolving market environment, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) face increasing operating costs with limited options to offset these expenses. Guardian Medical, a leading provider of innovative packaging solutions for the medical device industry, recognizes this challenge and takes pride in its unique capability to address cost pressures while delivering superior outcomes in sterile packaging. The introduction of Minimal Footprint Packaging (MFP) represents a paradigm shift in sterile packaging, drawing inspiration from an industry that excels at sizing implants for patients. Guardian Medical has now applied the same approach to packaging with its revolutionary CapSure system.
"Optimizing Outcomes Through Right-Sized Packaging"
Tracy Momany, President and CEO at Guardian Medical, explains, "At its core, MFP is about right-sizing sterile packaging for any medical device. By optimizing the size, reducing the number of components, using recyclable materials, and minimizing system costs throughout the life of the sterile package, MFP achieves the best outcomes for the OEM, package user, and environment."
Guardian Medical's Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Don Kennedy, adds, "Minimal Footprint Packaging (MFP) redefines how decisions are made about sterile packaging. Drawing inspiration from an industry that does an exceptional job at sizing implants for patients, we took that same approach and applied it to packaging with our CapSure system."
Praise from Industry Professionals
Industry professionals and leading medical device companies have lauded Minimal Footprint Packaging. Paul Marshall, Director of Labeling and Packaging Development at Zimmer Biomet, notes, "COGS evaluations associated with a packaging system should include every aspect of the manufacturing and distribution processes, including the cost of assembly, sterilization, distribution, storage, etc. Often, significant cost reductions in these areas can easily justify material price increases."
Santiago Beltran, Principal Engineer of Packaging/Labeling/Sterilization at ATEC, says, "Our industry is constantly seeking to make improvements for our end users that benefit their patients. Sterile packaging plays a crucial role in delivering efficiency and integrity to those improvements in the OR. Minimal Footprint Packaging fully embraces the importance and significance of delivering a product to the OR that is fully protected, easy, and quick to use."
