Beacon is a sterilization-packaging manufacturer for the medical device and pharmaceutical industry, creating specialized sterilizable packaging systems from hundreds of possible material combinations.

Products for preformed sterile barrier systems include:

  • Pharmaceutical bulk bags
  • IV overwrap bags
  • Peelable pouches and non-peelable pouches


Pharmaceutical bulk bags are commonly used to transport pharmaceutical materials through all the phases of the drug manufacturing process. The performance attributes can be matched to meet the requirements of your application, whether it is a breathable microbial barrier, extreme toughness, or barrier protection from moisture, oxygen, other gases or ultraviolet light. Bags may be produced up to 36in wide and up to 100in long, and can include a bottom gusset.

IV overwrap bags meet the protective requirements of specialized therapies.
Pharmaceutical bulk bags are commonly used to transport pharmaceutical materials through all the phases of the drug manufacturing process.


IV overwrap bags can meet the protective requirements of specialized therapies that require unique packaging solutions. Whether it is autoclavability, high moisture-barrier, ultraviolet-light protection or all three, we understand the unique demands of drug delivery systems.


Pouches, primarily used for terminally-sterilized medical devices, can be designed for all conventional sterilization methods. They are available as peelable pouches or non-peelable pouches, with several types of opening features.

Beacon’s pouches employ clear or opaque medical grade packaging materials that include Dupont™ Tyvek®, aluminum foil, PET, nylon, paper, polyethylene films, and specialized barrier materials. Pouches are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes and can be custom printed with up to four colors, and fabricated up to 36in wide and 100in long.
