Innovation at CPhI Worldwide: Duma Pocket – the pharmaceutical packaging that doesn’t look like medicine

Gerresheimer AG

It appears to be a box of sweeteners, chewing gum or peppermints

Düsseldorf/Frankfurt, October 24, 2017. Patients prefer pharmaceutical packaging that does not give away its contents at first glance. With their oval shape, Gerresheimer’s extremely handy Duma Pocket containers look more like boxes of sweeteners, chewing gum, or peppermints. The Duma Pocket is available in many different sizes and colors and with various closures. Gerresheimer is expanding its range of this tried-and-tested packaging with the addition of the 40 ml Duma Pocket CR Box and the 100 ml Duma Pocket CR 100 for large filling volumes.

The 40 ml Duma Pocket CR Box has a childproof closure, which can be opened by applying moderate pressure to the sides of the box with one hand while opening the top with the other: a simple task for adults but not for tiny hands.

As the name suggests, the Duma Pocket CR 100 can hold up to 100 ml. It also boasts an ergonomic design, a simple dispensing system, a childproof closure, and mounted desiccant(s) stored in its base. These impressive features make it an ideal primary packing solution for all kinds of drugs that need to be taken every day.

Lots of space for branding
The sides of all Duma Pockets are a perfect place for consumer information and offer plenty of room for distinctive brand designs, while the top area can be labeled individually for each client.

Available in every color
The Duma Pocket containers can be produced in any color and can even be made translucent or transparent. They are injection-moulded under clean room conditions.

High-speed filling
The Duma Pocket containers can be filled at high speed, packed without taking up much room, and stored with ease. Besides the two new Duma Pocket designs we have an existing Duma Pocket in 30 ml and 50 ml with a TE-function. All three designs can be extended to different sizes using the same base.

Gerresheimer will be showcasing its range of Duma Pocket containers at booth 4.2 D02 at CPhI Worldwide in the German city of Frankfurt from October 24 to 26.
