The way that medical products and devices are packaged and sealed is vital. In fact I don’t think it is an exaggeration to say that it can, literally, be a matter of life and death. That is why regulators around the world apply strict standards to the methods used to package devices and to the testing regimes to ensure that the packaging is properly sealed and that the seal will remain intact while the product is transported and stored. Many countries for example adopt the universally accepted standards devised by ASTM International (formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials).
The generics market has taken off in recent years due to numerous patent expirations for brand-name companies. In light of this, pharmaceutical manufacturers, insurance companies and consumers, in search of significant cost savings, have turned towards the generics industry.
