Bemis Healthcare Packaging recently launched Insura, an innovative seal verification technology designed specifically for medical device packaging. This technology is a real-time, non-destructive visual indicator of seal quality that’s imbedded into the sterile barrier system. A blue color is generated under only proper seal conditions – chemistry, heat, and intimate contact.
“Collaborating with our customers and understanding their needs in this quality driven market led us to develop this exciting, game changing technology,” said Bemis Healthcare Packaging’s Marketing Manager, David Vanden Heuvel.
Successfully engineering this technology platform was enabled by Bemis’s material science expertise.
- The blue color is generated during the sealing process; as a result of the combinatory chemistry added to the packaging substrates.
- The blue color intensity correlates to seal strength and can help identify defects. Measurement can be taken in real time to confirm seals are in specification.
- Through ETO sterilization the color is reversed, providing no visual difference to the end user.
