Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) May 28, 2009 -- DDL, the leading package testing services firm specializing in medical device package testing, will be represented in New York City at the MD&M East, trade show and will help kick off the conference with a powerful presentation by Scotty Levy, DDL's Packaging Engineer.
Levy's presentation, "Distribution Simulation Testing", outlines key activities designed to educate those in the medical device package testing industry on the importance of distribution simulation and the current industry trends.
"Distribution Simulation is a uniform way of evaluating shipping units through the use of laboratory equipment that subjects the packaging system to specific hazards that may occur within the anticipated distribution environment," Levy said. Understanding the methodologies behind the processes is vital for medical device manufactures to get their product to market."
Key takeaways attendees can hope to learn from Levy include:
- An explanation of the most common methodologies being utilized by medical device manufacturers including ASTM and ISTA procedures.
- An Analysis of the benefits and drawbacks of certain methodologies and valid alternative solutions.
- Detailed steps that need to be considered when designing your shipper for distribution simulation and a review the problematic scenarios that may arise during the process.
"A goal of ours at DDL Inc. is to educate our customers on the importance of distribution simulation testing, through effective, industry proven methodologies, and to quickly move them through the compliance stage on the way to market," Levy said.
"I look forward to ensuring that MD&M's attendees leverage what I have learned from my experience in package testing and consulting to efficiently launch their medical device packaging system," Levy continued.
