Medical Packaging Transition Project Data | DuPont™ Tyvek®

DuPont is investing more than $30 million in the Tyvek® Medical Packaging Transition Project (MPTP) to ensure continuity and flexibility of future supply. To assist medical device manufacturers with their risk assessments, we post specific Tyvek® transition project information on this website as it becomes available.

UPDATE: The U.S. FDA has affirmed functional equivalence for Transition Tyvek® and has notified the industry of this news
