)-- http://www.testedandproven.com/ -- DDL, the leading product and package testing services firm specializing in medical device package testing, recently discovered through the company’s July “Vibration Testing Quizzler” that only 46 percent of Medical Device Packaging Professionals truly understand that vibration testing
can prevent defective products or packaging from going to market.
In his winning Vibration Testing Quizzler response, David Anderson VP of Research & Development at GT Urological stated, “When there is the slightest chance that any of our medical products will be exposed to a transportation, operation or storage environment, it is vital that we implement vibration testing before going to market.”
The vibration testing quizzler question received answers from nearly 200 medical device packaging professionals:
Question:Package and product testing should always be expanded to include vibration testing when there is a chance of exposure to what environments?
•50 percent responded with transportation
•4 percent responded with operation and storage
•46 percent responded with all of the above
“Essentially, vibration testing is something products and packaging should be subjected to when there is a chance of its exposure in transportation, operation or storage,” states Patrick Nolan COO of DDL.
