In the pharmaceutical industry, it is necessary to be careful about pharma and life sciences product packaging.
FREMONT, CA: Manufacturers and retailers need to be careful in terms of packaging for pharmaceutical and healthcare goods, most of which are subject to strict regulatory laws. After all, to be successful and, most importantly, to be safe for use, goods must enter the customer in perfect condition.
When it comes to the packaging of their products, packaging experts have a lot to consider. The chemical and physical quality of the formulation, the purity of the product, protection, packaging processes, and distribution methods all play a crucial role in deciding a product's shelf life. Active Packaging (AP) plays a vital role in it. Specialized safety is required for medications, health supplements, medical instruments, surgical equipment, and diagnostic kits, where components like desiccants and oxygen are used.
Active packaging – Protect the customer
When it comes to shielding pharmaceuticals and other medical supplies from oxygen and moisture, active packaging is crucial. Usually, to minimize damage and deterioration, this means using protective materials in or on the packaging.
Eventually, in terms of shelf life and end-user protection, the consistency of active sorbent technology will play an essential role in how effective manufacturers are. But not all the oxygen absorbers and desiccants are the same. Generic goods would not give end-users or manufacturers the optimum value.
There is a wide variety of pharmaceutical and medical products out there, all with different specifications for active packaging; hence, the companies have built their products to fulfill a wide range of uses. Significantly, with every stage of the packaging and delivery process, they are also compatible. All the goods, for example, are compatible with high-speed packaging systems.
Developed for purpose and designed for effectiveness
The active sorbents come in five different types of products, making them ideal for a large variety of medical and pharmaceutical supplies. These include silica gel, molecular sieve (fast-working for products requiring immediate moisture protection), activated carbon (good for odor control), and a customized mix for both odor control and moisture-induced oxidation control, and even as a safe oxygen absorber.
