Package and Container Testing

SGS realizes that the package or container that carries your product is vital to its safety and efficacy: a weak container, or one that allows contamination of your product, could put the health of your customers and your reputation at risk. SGS package and container testing services offer a range of tests to ensure that your packaging is fit for purpose and does not compromise your product.

Our package and container tests are shaped to meet the needs of a wide range of clients across the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, medical devices and related industries. Each has particular needs, so our services are flexible enough to be tailored into programs that can provide full-time support or a helping pair of hands during busy periods. All tests are conducted to meet the requirements of regulatory bodies and relevant pharmacopeia.

Tests are conducted by our highly skilled specialists at one of our cutting-edge laboratories across the globe. They include tests on the raw materials used to make containers, tests on the final container and tests to examine the interaction between packaging and content, including extractables and leachables testing.

SGS has several decades’ experience of providing package and container testing to support clients’ quality control and risk assessment activity. Our consultants are always available to advise on how we can help ensure that your packaging does not compromise product safety and quality.
