Medical packaging has a range of important purposes, but the primary role is to protect packaged medical or pharmaceutical items. Medical packaging is designed to promote medical standards and protect medical items, since they have unique specifications and often require sterilization before packaging. As a result of the wide variety of medical components, medical packages range from pre-formed packages to customized packages for specialty parts. Variations in size, rigidity, breathability, and sterility allow even the most fragile medical component to be shipped in an appropriate package.
