INSIGHTS ON PHARMACEUTICAL PACKAGING

  • Applications For High Voltage Leak Detection You Might Not Be Aware Of

    High Voltage Leak Detection (HVLD), a technology first applied to pharmaceutical manufacturing in the 1970s, does not destructive to packaging components or cause the loss of good product like other inspection methods. HVLD is capable of handling any product as long as  the container is made of electrically insulated material and the product contains an electrically conductive solution. In this article you will learn more about other packaging applications that can be inspected with HVLD.

  • Specialty Medicines: Keys To The Packaging Process From Clinical To Commercial Launch

    A panel of experts from across the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry discussed key aspects of the clinical to commercial paradigm and best practices when managing the end-to-end packaging process. This included the importance of applying packaging design principles and ensuring launch packaging considerations were included at each stage of the development life cycles in order to deliver a successful, time-efficient launch.

  • What You Need To Know About Manufacturing OTC Products

    As more medications move to OTC status, people are interested in playing a more active role in managing their health and controlling their healthcare choices. However, self-medication comes with risks.

  • Ensuring The Efficacy Of Probiotic Products
    10/29/2019

    There is growing interest among consumers in verifying that the dietary supplements they take are safe and efficacious. The concern over whether consumers are getting the product as it is described on the label is rooted in one vital and transformative fact: probiotics are living organisms that are highly sensitive to humidity and oxygen. In the absence of proper handling and packaging, the efficacy of probiotic products can be compromised at any point of the packaging, storage and transportation process, inversely impacting shelf life and product viability and efficacy for the consumer.

  • A Unique Approach To Primary Container Identification And Traceability

  • The VeriPac 465 performs leak detection based on the basic principles of physics and does not require the use of trace gasses or sample preparation to perform the test. The VeriPac 465 core technology is based on the ASTM vacuum decay leak test method (F2338) recognized by the FDA as a consensus standard for package integrity testing. This test method was developed using VeriPac leak test instruments.

  • Packaging plays a significant role in the drug delivery system. Packaging provides information regarding the manufacturer’s name, price, date of manufacturing and expiry, dose or strength, ingredients, etc. Blister packaging is a type of packaging format specially designed for tablets and capsules made by heating and shaping a plastic sheet into the 'blister,' which is entirely covering the object, into a bubble or a pocket. Several types of plastic materials like Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), Amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (APET), High-density polyethylene (HDPE), etc. and aluminum sheets or foils are used in blister packaging. Blister packages can offer barrier protection and some tamper resistance to shelf-life requirements.
