SoTube® and SoSafe® Sterile Packaging Solutions

By Selenium Medical

SoTube and SoSafe are two double-sterile barrier compact packaging systems for longitudinally shaped medical implants. They have been designed to optimise preservation, presentation and safety of the implantable device with a pioneering 100% No Touch approach right up to the point of surgery.

These new packaging concepts have been elected as best innovative solutions and best alternatives to double-pouches and double-blisters in 2014 (AmeriStar 2014, Medical Design Excellence Gold Award 2014, IoPP Best of Show 2014, Medtec France Bronze Innovation Award...) and 2015 : WorldStar Packaging Award.

Space-saving and waste-reducing alternatives to conventional implant packages, the SoTube and SoSafe systems, with a shorter or extra long stopper, respectively, consist of one transparent tube nested inside another, provide 360° visibility of the implant, and can be configured in various ways.

Both systems come in a range of sizes, with a colour coding system on the stopper that relates to implant size, length and other information. The tubes are designed to make it easy for operating-theatre assistants to identify the appropriate implant and open the package, which is validated to maintain sterility through five years of shelf life following gamma sterilisation.
