Primary packaging, as the name suggests is the first layer that comes in direct contact with the content of the packaging, in this case, the medical product or the medical equipment. Examples of primary packaging for pharma products include strip packages as well as blisters.
Secondary packaging encompasses cartons, window pouches, and stand up pouches, these are the packaging style where the medical products are well grouped for storage purposes. Tertiary packaging is the one that encompasses containers of the pharmaceuticals that are used for shipment and bulk handling purposes.

It is important that these are strong, rigid, impermeable and chemically inactive.
