Pharma Packaging Solutions for Tablets from Nichrome

The pharma industry is constantly evolving and advancing. We see new formulations for better efficacy, alternative user-friendly forms in response to patient needs – complemented by advances in packaging design, materials and technologies.

Pharmaceutical packaging is an integral part of a pharmaceutical product. It comprises the package and the packaging processes for pharmaceutical preparations. It may also be involved in the dispensing, dosing and use of the pharmaceutical product.

Product protection is obviously the most important function of pharma packaging. Pharmaceutical products have to be shielded from the damaging effects of the environment. Many formulations become unstable when exposed to air, moisture, or light, and therefore protection from these factors is necessary to ensure that the medicines remain effective and safe. Pharma Packaging also performs other functions that enhance the product experience.

Functions of Pharma Packaging

1. Containment: The design of high-quality pharma packaging must take into account both the needs of the product and of the manufacturing and distribution system. This requires the pharma packaging: not to leak, nor allow diffusion and permeation of the product, to be strong enough to hold the contents when subjected to normal handling and not to be altered by the ingredients of the formulation in its final dosage form.

2. Protection: Pharma packaging must protect the product against all adverse external influences that may affect its quality, efficacy or potency, such as light, moisture, oxygen, biological contamination, mechanical damage and counterfeiting/adulteration.

3. Information: Pharma packaging is also an essential source of information on medicinal products which is provided by labels and package inserts for patients.

4. Convenience: This is associated with product use or administration.

Blister Packaging

Blister packaging is one of the fastest-growing packaging options worldwide. Blister packaging helps to increase the shelf life of capsules, tablets, pills and other pharma/cosmetic products. Blister packaging is a proven solution for protecting pharmaceutical products; it is also a convenient solution for patients since blister packages are easy to carry and use on the go. Among these are PVC, PCTFE, PVDC and thermoform blisters for less sensitive products or Alu-Alu cold form blisters for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) that are more sensitive.
