Blister Pack Texture Application NoteSource: Brookfield Engineering Laboratories, Inc.
Blister packs should provide some degree of tamper resistance avoiding accidental opening during transportation and by children. A quality blister pack should be consistent in the force required to extract the tablet and easily opened by weaker patients and the elderly. The degree of stiffness of a blister pack will however affect its effectiveness. Measuring the required force to push-through a blister pack is therefore necessary.
