Burettes

50+ Years in the Medical Device Market

We first started producing plastic packaging over 50 years ago and we've been going strong ever since. Today, Plastech is one of the leading manufacturers of medical packaging in Scotland.

Over the course of our journey, we have partnered with leading medical device manufacturers, expanded our team of pharmaceutical packaging experts, and produced packaging for a wide range of applications within the medical and healthcare industries.

Our sterile medical device packaging is the product of years of development in our knowledge of sterilisation methods, medical and pharmaceutical packaging, regulatory processes, sealing and protection, package integrity, and more.

We know what we're doing and it shows in the products we produce.

Wide Range of Packaging for Medical Devices

Plastech has been a trusted choice for medical device, pharmaceutical, and specialised sterile packaging manufacturers and suppliers worldwide for decades.

Since our inception, we have perfected the art of producing high-performance sterile packaging for medical instruments and devices. 

Our protective packaging solutions range from containers for orthopaedic implants to surgical presentation trays and plastic tube medical packaging.

Our range includes:

IV Catheter Packaging

Available in based clean tube packs with caps that integrate Tyvek medical grade paper and thermoformed plastic or rigid, impact-resistant PETG thermoformed trays, our intravenous catheter packaging offers superior protection against contamination and damage before use.

Thoracic and Trocar Catheter Packaging

Our thick-walled PETG or PVC catheter tubes are easy to use and provide the sterile barrier and protection needed to keep thoracic and trocar catheters free from contaminants and damage during transportation and in storage.

Surgical Instrument Packaging

Plastech's packaging for surgical instruments ranges from plastic and medical grade paper trays. These offer greater resistance against tearing and an effective SBS (Sterile Barrier System) that protects the contents against microbial contamination.

Orthopaedic Joint Replacement Components Packaging

We offer a range of stock standard and custom made extrude tube containers that are specially designed with superior structural rigidity and impact resistance materials. This offers greater product protection against contamination and damage such as tears and punctures.

Screws and Implants Packaging

Our range of stock standard and custom made packaging for medical screws and implants include rigid PETG and PVC extruded container systems that are designed to protect the contents against damage and contamination during transportation and storage.

Medical Rigid Tubing for Packaging

Rigid extruded medical tubes are an affordable, durable, and reusable packaging solution. Our rigid medical tube packaging is made from sterilisable medical-grade thermoplastic which offers exceptional protection for delicate medical devices.

We can also make rigid plastic tubing according to your specifications.

Custom Packaging 

Need medical grade packaging designed according to your exact specifications? Our experienced in-house team of packaging engineers and designers can work with you to produce bespoke designs that suit your exact needs.

Whether you need pharmaceutical packaging with specific properties or packaging for custom products, Plastech prides itself on offering made to order packaging solutions.

Our clients trust us to design and manufacture high-performance medical packaging that meets their sterility needs, production specifications, and user requirements.

In-House Design Team

We have a dedicated in-house team of packaging engineers and designers who are experienced in producing packaging for the medical and healthcare industries. You will have access to their expertise as they work with you to ensure you get exactly what you need.

Our team will be available every step of the way, from design to delivery.

High-Performance Medical Grade Materials

The materials we use to manufacture our medical-grade packaging offer superior structural strength and sealing while also providing an excellent microbial barrier. 

This helps to maintain the sterility of the contents until they are opened and ensures greater protection against tearing and puncturing while in transit and storage.

Our range of materials include:

PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol)

PETG has a rigid structure that allows it to withstand harsh Ethylene Oxide and Gamma sterilisation methods. This makes it an excellent material for medical device packaging. 

We use only the best PETG for our moulded trays and blister packaging.

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)

PVC is widely used for pharmaceutical packaging because it offers excellent structural rigidity, physical protection, thermoformability, strength, and chemical resistance. 

It is also low cost and can be easily sterilised using radiation or ethylene oxide methods.

Cellulose Acetate

Cellulose Acetate is a popular material for medical packaging because it has high transparency, excellent mechanical strength, good resistance to chemicals, and has superior heat sealing properties. 

Medical Grade Paper

Made from medical Tyvek materials, our medical-grade paper offers strength and acts as a durable, protective barrier for medical devices such as based tubes for catheters. 

Our medical paper offers excellent microbial, tear, and puncture resistance.

Greater Package Integrity

Medical device packaging enhances the shelf life of products by maintaining the sterility of the contents. The longer packaging can maintain its integrity, the longer products remain sterile.

All our designing and testing is done with this in mind so we can provide our clients with sterile medical packaging that provides the highest level of protection and a clean peel.

Our plastic medical packaging will maintain its integrity throughout its shelf-life, even with coatings and in storage conditions that vary in temperature, air pressure, and humidity.

Tear Resistance

Made from high-grade materials, our packaging is more resistant to tearing and puncturing. This gives your product a longer shelf life and prevents it from getting damaged before use.

Seal Strength

Our medical caps are designed to offer more seal strength and are designed for EO sterilisation. Superior sealing acts as a microbial barrier and ensures the packaging is safely sealed up until use. 

Microbial Barrier

The durable materials we use adhere to medical packaging standards and offer a strong microbial barrier that protects the contents from contamination.

Sterilisation Methods

Plastech's sterile medical and pharmaceutical packaging is designed to withstand Gamma and Ethylene Oxide (EO) sterilisation methods.

Sterilisation methods using irradiation or gas, such as Gamma or Ethylene Oxide (EO), enable full penetration of the fully packed device without affecting the packaging.

We believe the control and maintenance of quality is the responsibility of all staff. This philosophy is inherent in our staff training programmes as we strive to achieve total customer satisfaction.

Every order, regardless of how big or small, is subjected to our stringent contract review procedure to ensure that exact customer requirements are met before production planning.

Compliance with Medical Packaging Standards

ISO Certification

Our Quality Management System (QMS) is certified to ISO 9001:2015.

Medical Manufacturing Environments

Our manufacturing environments and QMS reflect the requirements of the Medical and Healthcare markets we supply. 

Our production facility is equipped with state of the art equipment that has been designed specifically for the manufacture of sterile medical packaging.

Controlled Environment

Each piece of non-sterile packaging is manufactured under strict conditions within a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) environment. 

Our controlled environment meets all the regulatory requirements and operators are gowned accordingly in cleanroom garments at all times.

Cleanroom

Our cleanroom has been designed and validated to BS EN ISO 14644-1 Class 7.

We use HEPA filters to remove particulate matter from incoming air and maintain a positive pressure in excess of 15 pascals at all times to prevent the ingress of airborne contaminants into the work area.

Surfaces are constructed from stainless steel to maintain hygiene standards and our staff are trained in cleanroom procedures and the philosophy behind cleanroom manufacture.
