Secondary Packaging White Papers & Case Studies

  1. A Specialized Pharmaceutical Kit Assembly Solution

    Company launches a fast acting Insulin injector pen pharmaceutical kit into the U.S. market by utilizing the new bespoke Semi-automated Packaging System (SAPS) at Almac’s U.S. commercial packaging facility.

  2. Beyond Item-Level Serialization: Extending Traceability Schemes To Secondary And Tertiary Packaging

    Falsified and counterfeit medicines are a chronic problem for the pharmaceutical sector, with a third of all shipments in the worst affected parts of the world estimated to contain fake medicines.

  3. The Hidden Challenges Of Pharmaceutical Serialization

    The true extent of the counterfeiting is unknown, since no global study has ever been carried out, but according to WHO estimates, up to 15% of all medicines are counterfeit.

  4. The EU Falsified Medicines Directive – Concerted Action To Secure The pharmaceutical supply Chain

    In recent years the production of, and trade in, falsified medicines – both research based and generic – has grown to become a global illegal business. At the borders of the EU alone over 30 million counterfeit medicines have been seized during the last five years, and the statistics regarding medicines supplied online are equally disturbing: according to the European Alliance for Safe Medicines, 62% of medicines purchased online are fake or substandard.

  5. Gain Greater Flexibility In Pharma Packaging

    In numerous pharma compa­nies, the following problem is being posed: shrinking lot sizes are constantly worsening the ratio of packaging system set-up time to running time. By Dr. Ralph Blum, Mediseal GmbH, Schloss Holte

  6. Late Stage Customization For Small Lots Of Blister Packaging

    Two years ago, Elaiapharm undertook the packaging of an important new solid dose product (Cipralex, an antidepressant) to be launched across a large number of international markets. The product itself is an ODT – orally dispersible tablet – formulation packed in child resistant cold form blisters.

  7. Autoclavable PP Blisters With Filled Disposable Syringes

    At the end of the packaging process, the packaged syringes should meet the requirements for sterile devices in the operating room. Therefore, the finished blisters are autoclaved at 121 °C (2 bar) for 15 minutes. Only minimal deformation of the blisters is tolerated, so that the syringes can be used in the operating room without problems after this thermal treatment.

  8. 2 Sachet Machines Connected To 1 Cartoner

    Volumetric feeding by means of a flowmeter, a method that has become established at Pharmatis, was also implemented in this project; the configuration was taken over by the Mediseal HMI. The feeding system is highly flexible and can be adapted to a wide range of products.

  9. Handling And Packaging Of Blow/Fill/Seal Vials With Liquid Eye Drops

    With significantly higher output capabilities, Excelvision expects to increase production by nearly five-fold. The new line also gives the company greater flexibility to meet customer requirements.

  10. Ensure Tamper-Evident Pharmaceutical Packaging For EU Compliance

    As falsifications become more sophisticated, the risk of falsified medicines reaching patients in the EU increases every year.
