Buffalo, New York, August 26, 2011–Multisorb Technologies is pleased to announce they will have active packaging professionals available at PACK EXPO 2011 to discuss Drop-In, Fit-In and Built-In sorbent solutions - available with IntelliSorb™. Multisorb’s sorbent solutions maintain product stability and extend product shelf life for pharmaceuticals, medical devices, in-vitro diagnostics, and combination drug/device products.
Multisorb’s Drop-In, Fit-In, and Built-In sorbent solutions are designed to meet the specialized and often complex needs of the healthcare industry. Using data on drug characteristics, packaging materials properties, and desired shelf life, Multisorb’s packaging experts will determine an optimized sorbent formulation for the management of moisture, oxygen, and volatiles. The recommended formulation is then presented in the format best suited to your product - Drop-In, Fit-In, or Built-In.
Drop-In solutions are placed directly into the product packaging. These include StabilOx® packets and canisters, StripPax® packets, and SorbiCap® canisters. As part of a systems-based approach, Drop-In sorbents combined with Multisorb’s APA series of dispensing machinery ensure the integrity of your packaging process by offering seamless integration of sorbent placement in packaging presentations. Multisorb will be showcasing StripPax® dispensers, including the APA-500 (semi-automated) and APA-2000 (high-speed, fully automated).
Fit-In sorbent offer an on-board solution. A compressed sorbent, such as Multiform CSF®, is custom shaped to fit into an existing space within the device or packaging. These compressed sorbents offer increased sorbent protection per unit volume than traditional loose-fill packets and canisters.
For even greater customization, a Built-In solution incorporates sorbent into a thermoplastic structural component of the device, giving the device component multifunctional capabilities.
As pharmaceutical products and medical devices become more complex, there is an increased need for steady-state and multi-functional control of moisture, oxygen, and volatilized organic compounds. For these products, there is IntelliSorb™. IntelliSorb will manage moisture by maintaining an optimal equilibrium relative humidity in the packaging headspace as well as managing water activity in the healthcare product. In addition to moisture management, IntelliSorb™ sorbent formulations are available to also reduce or eliminate oxidative degradation and/or adsorb hydrocarbons that result in undesirable odors.
Visit booth #5225 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, September 26-28, and speak to one of Multisorb’s packaging professionals about the solutions and systems that will ensure your product’s stability and shelf life.
