Package Testing

DDL provides package testing services that evaluate the strength and integrity characteristics of a packaging system before and after simulating anticipated distribution and storage conditions that the system may undergo. This combination of simulation and evaluation is used by packaging professionals to validate package compliance with ASTM, ISO, ISTA and other accepted industry standards.

The purpose of package testing is to ensure that packages are able to withstand the typical events associated with distribution, handling and storage without defect and loss of sterility. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure the package’s ability to provide protection and maintain sterility throughout distribution, handling and storage. Companies throughout the world trust DDL to provide this critical testing for their package validation projects.
