Since its establishment in 2005, Sabre Medical Pty Ltd has remained dedicated to supplying high-quality packaging materials, sealing machines, and testing services to the medical device industry. Our commitment to customer satisfaction is reflected in our selective partnerships with suppliers who meet our rigorous quality standards. We steadfastly maintain our Quality Management System, adhering to the requirements of ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 as appropriate.

Who are your Supply Partners at Sabre Medical?
At Sabre Medical, we take pride in our partnerships with companies that share our values and meet our rigorous standards and quality accreditations. We conduct regular visits and audits of our suppliers, fostering confidence in their ability to consistently deliver products and machinery that align with our exacting standards.
MediPack AG – Trays, Lids, and Sealing Machines
Our collaboration with MediPack AG dates back to 2005, evolving from a trusted supplier into a true partnership. This growth led to the establishment of Medtechnet, an international collaborative network. MediPack work with the Sabre Medical Design and Quality Team to ensure the trays and Lids are to our customer specification.
Amcor – Pouches
For pouches, we turn to Amcor, a global leader in responsible packaging for the food and medical industries. Amcor understands the critical need for continuity in supply and can procure materials in the quantities necessary for your ongoing and uninterrupted production.
Micronclean – Cleanroom Products
In 2016, Micronclean, a UK-based company, approached Sabre Medical with an opportunity to introduce their high-quality cleanroom products to Australia. Recognizing the increasing demand in the region, we embraced the partnership. This decision has proven fruitful, as we’ve successfully expanded our market share and secured significant supply agreements for alcohols and consumables in both Australia and New Zealand.
What is the process to create custom designed medical device packaging?
Typically, our process kicks off with an initial consultation, a collaborative effort where our Design team closely collaborates with clients to grasp their specific requirements. Moving forward, we transition into the design phase, creating visual representations and developing 3D printed rapid prototypes. These prototypes serve as a tangible means for you to evaluate the design, feel the product, and develop a comprehensive understanding before progressing to larger-scale production for testing and market launch.
To enhance this process, we’ve made strategic investments in cutting-edge equipment and established four state-of-the-art cleanrooms. These resources empower us to deliver customized packaging solutions with swift turnaround times, catering to run sizes that precisely match your requirements.
How long does it take to create a Custom Designed Packaging Trays?
At Sabre Medical, we streamline the process by designing and manufacturing trays right here at our site in Australia, slashing lead and shipping times. In fact, we can turn around the production of these trays in a matter of days!
FFS (Form, Fill, Seal) Advantage
Our Form, Fill, Seal (FFS) method is a game-changer. By utilizing standard pre-formed blisters with a fixed sealing profile and adjusting only the internal geometry as needed to accommodate the product, we enable smaller, quicker production runs. This technique not only offers enhanced flexibility but also significantly reduces development lead time.
Illig Thermoforming for Larger Production Runs
Looking for a larger production run? Our Illig Thermoforming system is the answer. It’s a versatile blister packaging system that opens up almost unlimited possibilities, ensuring efficiency and adaptability to meet your specific requirements.
How many cleanrooms do you have on site?
Sabre Medical boasts four state-of-the-art Class 7 and Class 8 cleanrooms seamlessly integrated with adjoining packaging facilities on-site. These cleanrooms are equipped with the industry’s highest quality machines, cutting-edge equipment, and advanced technologies.
From assembling, cleaning, and packaging devices to crafting precision trays and efficiently cutting and packing pouches tailored to our customer’s specifications, our four cleanrooms operate seamlessly.

What our clients are saying
The quality of the pouches, that Logikal utilize sterile barriers, are absolutely critical to our operation, as is the effectiveness & maintenance of our pouch sealing equipment.
For this reason, we chose many years ago to source both those pouches, & the pouch sealing equipment, from Sabre Medical. Sabre provides a certainty, expertise and reliability that is vital to maintain high quality when providing sterile devices to market.
