Join us for a tour of Millstone Medial, the trusted partner of medical device manufacturers worldwide. Millstone Medical, headquartered in Fall River, MA, is a leading provider of post-manufacturing services. View Millstone’s capabilities including 15,000 square feet of class 10,000/ISO 7 clean room space with real-time particulate monitoring systems. You’ll hear how Millstone performs their sealing validations, distribution testing, accelerated aging, cleaning validation, critical inspections and how they handle traceability.

During this informative tour you will better understand how one of the industry’s leading contract assemblers and contract packagers balances verified sterile packaging solutions with the time requirements of medical device manufacturers to get products to market faster. We will start in the Receiving/Inspection building and walk through their process for segregating product based on inspection status.
