DESICCANT BAGS - PHARMACEUTICAL APPLICATIONS
Desiccant Bags for Bulk Protection of Healthcare Products
Desiccant Bags are larger sorbents that adsorb moisture to maintain stability of healthcare products, such as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, APIs, excipients, reagents and other healthcare-related materials.
Bags are ideal for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, diagnostic and medical devices that are susceptible to either chemical or physical degradation due to moisture. Silica gel (silicone dioxide) and molecular sieve (synthetic zeolite) are offered depending on the moisture adsorption attributes required for any given application.
Desiccant are often used for finished products where a larger amount of desiccant is required compared to desiccant packets and canisters, as well as in bulk packaging for storage, shipping, or work-in-process material.
