MITG package with Insura™ Seal Verification secures Gold Achievement Award for technical innovation
Insura™ is an innovative seal-verification technology designed for medical device packaging. This real-time, non-destructive visual indicator of seal quality is imbedded into a sterile barrier system to deliver a blue color that is generated only when chemistry, heat and the right contact are present to indicate proper seal conditions.
“What makes this technology so exciting is the ability to confirm seal strength in real time,” said Jackson. “Then, through ETO sterilization, the color is reversed so there is no visual difference for the end-user.”
