Information & Ideas
Tyvek® provides a unique combination of physical properties that no other sterile packaging material can match, consistently outperforming other commercially available porous packaging materials—including medical-grade papers—in test after test.
Printing on Tyvek® medical and pharmaceutical packaging styles can be done using standard commercial printing equipment and suitable inks. These guidelines can help you obtain optimum printing results.
During the May 2014 webcast, DuPont experts provided regulatory and technical updates, as well as guidance on how MDMs can prepare for full commercialization of Transition Protocol material. The webcast slides are available for download.
Tyvek® that has undergone gamma sterilization with doses of radiation up to 100 kGy maintains its excellent microbial barrier properties and experiences only slight changes in tensile strength, elongation and color—even after aging.
EtO sterilization does not compromise the superior strength and microbial barrier properties of the medical and pharmaceutical styles of DuPont™ Tyvek®—even after five years of real-time aging.
Tyvek® Medical Packaging Transition Project data demonstrating functional equivalence, as well as regulatory guidance documents from authorities around the world are available for download. New technical data is added as it becomes available.
Tyvek® medical and pharmaceutical packaging styles are manufactured in facilities that are ISO 9001:2008 certified. These facilities strictly adhere to good manufacturing practices, good laboratory practices and quality control measures.
DuPont Medical and Pharmaceutical Protection has compiled documentation demonstrating compliance of Tyvek® to the materials portion of the ISO 11607-1:2006(R)2010 Standard. A guidebook containing compliance information is available for download.
