Evaluate package, or package performance, or both, after real time aging relative to the initial package requirements. ASTM F procedure for accelerated aging is comprised of the following: Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Extracted information from Astm f1980 F testing may astm f1980 used to support expiration astm f1980 claims for medical device sterile barrier systems.

In parallel, age samples at real-life aging conditions TRT. Age samples at TAA.

More aggressive AAFs may be used with documented evidence to show a correlation between real time and accelerated aging. Astm f1980 Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Stability testing using accelerated aging protocols shall be regarded as sufficient evidence for claimed expiry date until data from real time aging studies are available. ASTM-F Standard Guide for Accelerated Aging of Sterile Barrier Systems for Medical Devices The introduction of new astm f1980 modified products to the marketplace requires the assurance astm f1980 they can be stored for an extended period one year, two years, etc.


The introduction of new or modified products to the marketplace zstm the assurance that they can be stored for an extended period one year, two years, etc. Astm f1980 to Practice D for standard conditions that may be used to challenge the sterile barrier system to realistic extremes in temperature and humidity astm f1980.


The sterile barrier system shall maintain sterility to the point of use or until the expiry date. Define package material properties, seal strength and integrity tests, sample sizes, and acceptance criteria.

Evaluate the package performance after accelerated aging relative to the initial package requirements. However, due to astm f1980 conditions in which products become obsolete in a short time, and the need to get new products to market in the shortest possible time, real time aging studies do not meet this objective.

The sterile barrier astm f1980 material and device interaction compatibility that may be astm f1980 for new product development or the resulting evaluation is not addressed in this guide. Accelerated aging studies can provide an alternative means.

Select the Q10 value Define astm f1980 desired shelf life of the package marketing and product needs, d1980. Determining AAFs are beyond the scope of this guide. Try out our Accelerated Aging Calculator!

The resulting creation of an expiration date or shelf life is based on the use of a conservative estimate of the aging factor for example, Q 10 and is tentative until the results of real time aging studies are completed on the sterile barrier system.

ASTM F – 07 Standard Guide for Accelerated Aging of Sterile Barrier Systems for Medical Devices

Astm f1980 testing shall demonstrate that the sterile barrier system maintains integrity over time. For more information visit www.

Real time studies must be carried out to the claimed shelf life of the atsm and be performed to their completion. Define aging test time intervals including time astm f1980.

f19800 It is the responsibility of the user of this standard astm f1980 establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the astm f1980 of regulatory limitations prior to use. To ensure that accelerated aging studies do truly represent real time effects, real time aging studies must be conducted in parallel to accelerated studies.
