Maintaining seal integrity is a high priority in medical device packaging, therefore testing standards need to be relevant and applicable. Join us as Hal Miller discusses dye penetration testing and how the two new dye application methods added to the ASTM F1929-12 Standard Test Method for Detecting Leaks in Porous Medical Packaging by Dye Penetration will benefit medical device packaging. 


Join the Medical Packaging Innovation community at 1:00 p.m. UTC for "Medical Device Packaging: Standard Changes in Dye Penetration Testing," where Hal will discuss:

  • Why the two new dye test methods were added.
  • What other revisions were made to the standard besides the additional methods.
  • If this test method is for paper, Tyvek pouches, and trays with one clear side, what should be used for film and foil packages?
