Press Release

June 27, 2012

Nelson Laboratories (www.nelsonlabs.com) announced it has been selected by DuPont Protection Technologies’ Medical and Pharmaceutical Protection unit (www.medicalpackaging.dupont.com) to provide testing in support of a DuPont Tyvek 1073B and Tyvek 1059B transition project.

As an independent testing laboratory, Nelson Laboratories will provide pre- and post-sterilization evaluations of Tyvek packaging including pouches, header bags, flexible and rigid blisters and rigid tray-and-lidding combinations provided by medical device manufacturers.

“As a company, we are very excited to work with DuPont Protection Technologies, one of the great global business leaders,” said Jeffery R. Nelson, Nelson Laboratories’ president and CEO. “Our recent growth with lab space, equipment and people, along with our commitment to service and quality, makes us uniquely prepared to meet the testing demands required to serve DuPont alongside our existing and future customers.”

Nelson Laboratories was selected from among four finalists and was chosen due to its quality systems and capabilities.

“Nelson Laboratories has been investing in its technical expertise, capabilities, equipment and facilities to accommodate the increasing requirements of the medical device, pharmaceutical, tissue and natural products industries over the past several years,” said Nelson.

Nelson Laboratories’ will begin operations in a newly acquired building in early July increasing its total laboratory facilities to more than 125,000 square feet and will accommodate a staff of more than 400 people.

The testing of samples is scheduled to begin in early 2013. Expected to last at least 10 years, the testing program will include visual inspection, package integrity, seal-strength testing, microbial barrier testing and will include both accelerated and real-time aging.
