Airnov discoveries help maximize OTR protection in pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products
The Airnov Healthcare Packaging, a global leader in controlled atmosphere packaging, allows pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products manufacturers to optimize their product development cycles into its series of oxygen security and simulation solutions.
Products in specific categories are often oxygen-sensitive and need protective packaging. This includes drugs, probiotics, proteins, stents, surgical devices, and different dry products.
To preserve such vital commodities, Airnov allows two critical solutions Oxynov Barrier Bottles and Pharmakeep.
Oxynov stopper bottles utilize extrusion-blow-molding (EBM) technology, creating a six-layer bottle with ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) that gives the most critical barrier to the oxygen and moisture market within this packaging category.
Moreover, rigid bottles do not shrink when using oxygen absorbers, allowing a superior outcome to alternative standard LDPE and HDPE bottles.
Pharmakeep is two-in-one oxygen and moisture absorber, possibly in drop-in canisters and packets. It helps to clarify the protection process and offers a fast way of receiving the oxygen inside the headspace of the packaging versus iron the oxygen absorbers.
The Oxygen thoughts are reduced from 20.8% to less than 0.01%, avoiding nitrogen flushing.
Airnov also allows a global evaluation tool for oxygen protection within its Stablus predictive simulator. Stablus helps to decrease time spent on product development about the selection of suitable protecting solutions.
“We are supporting our customers to estimate oxygen protection with Stablus at the start of their product development projects to help optimize oxygen stability, taking into account the key measures of a drug product such as moisture content, packaging performance, and climatic circumstances, shelf-life” commented Stephane Rault, Oxygen Absorber Product Manager at Airnov.
“If you are looking to decrease your development time and costs, please contact Airnov for a full oxygen protection evaluation.”
Airnov’s Oxynov barrier bottles and Phamakeep oxygen absorbers are generally available in different specifications; the company’s development team must provide Stablus services completely various regions.
