AmeriStar Awards Competition Now Accepting Entries

Don't miss submitting your best work to the 2013 AmeriStar Package Awards Competition! AmeriStar showcases the most ground-breaking, innovative packages of the year.

AmeriStar winners in 2012 included the following medical device packages: 

  • Harvest Technologies SmartPreP2/BMAC2 Package from Sealed Air Corp. Package footprint is 30% smaller than its largest predecessor, and the sterilized portion of the package was reduced by 30% in volume and 50% in weight.
  • Thoratec HM2 Tray Set by TEQ. The design uses Denset lugs allowing removal of inner trays to ease use.
  • Cook Urological Bakri kit by Prent. The tray and retainer holds products of various lengths and reduces prep time.

The entry deadline for this year's competition had been extended to April 5 (our original post listed the original deadline of March 29, 2013). Please visit the AmeriStar Package Awards Web site for package categories, judging criteria, rules, and entry form.
