White Papers

Throughout the SPMC’s history, our shared technical information has evolved from the development of FAQ’s to the writing of consensus standards and the presentation of webinars. This section pulls various parts of that history together into white papers. Our aim is to provide tools for learning and decision-making that clarify aspects of packaging and to help illustrate its value in protecting medical device and other healthcare products.

The webcast is available on demand for one year. Packaging and quality engineers at medical device manufacturers will want to hear this informative hour-long presentation, which provides a film manufacturer's and converter's perspective on gels and sterile barrier package integrity.
