    Given the unique end uses of biomaterials and medical devices, it is essential that they are packaged in a safe, stable environment which ensures that the device is not altered or damaged by transportation, storage, handling and distribution. This book discusses current developments, trends and the future outlook for packaging biomaterials and medical devices. This book begins with a review of well established and novel materials most often used in medical packaging. Useful information on manufacturing processes, testing and validation is discussed in addition to reliability and regulatory issues. Finally the book concludes with an analysis on the drive to sustainable packaging within the medical industry.
