Packaging Solutions

Proven processes for bioburden reduction on packaging materials.

Microbial bioburden on packaging materials used in manufacturing can have a significant impact not just on the product it’s protecting, but also on an organization’s finances and reputation. It is therefore vital to have a reliable, quality-controlled process to sterilize or sanitize packaging prior to use.
