How to protect pharmaceuticals

AGAINST MOISTURE AND OXYGEN

There are multiple ways for moisture and oxygen to enter the inside of a plastic pharmaceutical bottle which can cause a drug to lose its efficiency before the end of its shelf life. Finding the right solution requires a system-based approach for each individual case. Clariant’s full range of active and protective solutions including silica gel, molecular sieve and bentonite desiccants, as well as barrier bottles and oxygen scavengers enable the control of conditions inside drug packages.

Challenge

ADDRESSING MOISTURE AND OXYGEN DEGRADATION

Moisture and oxygen can affect the chemical or physical stability of pharmaceutical products. Due to moisture vapor transmission, tablets and capsules are exposed to moisture and oxygen that can permeate the package from the outside environment. Sensitive healthcare products often need active protection to adsorb these elements to ensure optimal shelf life.

Solution

FULL RANGE OF SORBENTS FOR SPECIFIC NEEDS

Clariant offers active solutions – desiccants and other sorbents – to control the atmospheric conditions inside a container, helping to address the challenge of drug stability. Desiccants like silica gel, molecular sieve and bentonite have the capacity to readily adsorb moisture, compensating for the moisture vapor transmission into the bottle during shelf life. Configurations include canisters, packets, closures, and desiccant polymers to address specific packaging needs. Oxygen scavengers protect drugs from the effects of oxidation.
