How to protect pharmaceuticals
AGAINST MOISTURE AND OXYGENThere 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.
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.
