Learn how a leading supplier of urinary catheters corrected a recall-inducing sterility seal failure
Seal of Disapproval
One of the world’s top three manufacturers of urinary catheters had a legacy packaging process believed to produce a sturdy structure. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite sturdy enough. Packaged catheters in the field were discovered with open seals. This led to a sterility breach, followed by a costly recall, halted production lines and a temporary inability to serve customers.
The company needed a solution fast.
TekniPlex offered a coated product, which kept disruption to a minimum.
- The improved package seal showed improved durability, providing the fastest path back to safe, sterile mass production.
- Impact to the company’s reputation was limited.
- The new process proved to be less expensive.
