High-tech Packaging for High-tech Medicine

As more biologics and biosimilars come on to the global pharmaceutical market, they can and will present unique packaging and containment challenges. For materials that are sensitive to glass or that may require larger-dose volumes or custom configurations, cyclic olefin polymers may offer a solution. These novel materials for drug container closure systems can provide a needed alternative to traditional glass containment systems for advanced therapeutics.

Detecting Integrity Breaches in a range of Pharmaceutical Blister Package Types using Sepha VisionScan

Sepha Limited

Demonstrating the integrity of pharmaceutical blister packs is critically important, as any defects can affect the shelf life and efficacy of the contents. Compared to bulk packaging, blister packs offer improved product integrity, tamper evidence and reduce the likelihood of misuse. Packs can be composed of either a thermoformed polymer or cold formed aluminium tray, with a number of individual pockets to hold the product. After the tablets or capsules are placed in the pockets, the packs are heat sealed with a paper or foil laminate sheet. These various stages can be completed separately or integrated into a single form, fill and seal process. There is a risk of microbial containment or degradation of the contents if any defects are present in the packaging. Such defects can take the form of rips or pinholes in the tray, or lid materials, faulty seals and channel leaks between pockets.
