Tyvek® Transition Update

Tyvek® Rx: September 2016

Looking for the latest DuPont™ Tyvek® Medical Packaging Transition Project (MPTP) data and documents? Go to www.areyouready.tyvek.com.

We post all new MPTP data and documents to this webpage as they become available. Recently, we posted two new Industry Summary Reports. These reports summarize data for 11 of the 78 combined U.S. FDA Transition and Phantom Protocol cells that were tested under 7- and 10-year accelerated aging conditions.  

As noted in these two new reports, the results from 7- and 10-year accelerated aging continue to overwhelmingly support declaring functional equivalence between Current Tyvek® and Transition Protocol material. Details are provided in the tables and figures contained in these reports

We also recently updated the MPTP Package Test Results Selector Tool to include the 7- and 10-year accelerated aging data. You can use this tool to search for results from MPTP testing by selecting Tyvek® style and package design. This tool now contains results for the following study time points: pre-sterilization, 1-, 3-, 5-, 7- and 10-year accelerated aging and 1-year real-time aging.
