Protection from Oxygen
Protecting healthcare products from oxidation
Oxygen, like moisture, is a major degradation mechanism of pharmaceuticals particularly in liquid and solid formulations. Both small organic molecules and biopharmaceuticals like proteins and peptides are susceptible to oxidation.
Oxidation can often be addressed by controlling the oxygen in packaging. Clariant offers efficient packaging technologies that protect from oxygen either with our without gas flushing. They include:
By adequately limiting the ability of oxygen to make ingress into product packaging and absorbing or scavenging any headspace oxygen, oxidative reactions can be controlled, avoiding degradation reactions and the generation of degradation products.
