Sanner GmbH, a manufacturer of high-quality plastic packaging for pharmaceutical, medical and healthcare products, will showcase all three products launched in 2014 at Pharmapack 2015 in Paris to be held on February 11-12, 2015. The novelties include the Brilliance Tube for effervescent tablets and solid pharmaceuticals with IML technology, as well as two drop-in solutions for pharmaceutical packaging. With the AdCap capsules and the AdPack pillow packs, the company underscores its position as market leader for desiccant packaging.
Sanner has launched no less than three product novelties in 2014. “After our very positive trading results from the preceding year, we have invested a considerable amount of energy into product development and have expanded our portfolio, especially in the categories of Effervescent Packaging and Pharma Desiccant Packaging,” says Sanner CEO Holger Frank. “Pharmapack is the ideal platform to present our clients and prospects all three launches at a glance.”
The new Brilliance Tube, manufactured with IML technology, is especially suited for effervescent tablets, but can also be used for solid pharmaceuticals. With photorealistic printing results, up to eight colors, metallic effects and different surface structures, customers receive a premium quality packaging solution, which generates more attention at point of sale. The unique bottom geometry makes it possible to smoothly pack the tubes into customary sales trays. Sanner customers receive everything from a single source: from printed labels and the manufacturing of decorated tubes through to the combination with proven desiccant closures from Sanner and the delivery as system packaging.
The new AdPack desiccant pillow packs are an efficient, safe and economic solution for the protection of moisture-sensitive pharmaceuticals such as tablets and capsules inside the packaging. The pillow packs are available as single strips or on reel, and are made of extremely durable, tear-resistant and non-dusting Tyvek material. AdPack is highly permeable and ensures long-term adsorption of moisture and odors. Due to the flexible Tyvek material, the packaged drugs remain intact at all times. The distinct shape of the sachets eliminates potential confusion with pharmaceuticals, and prevents accidental ingestion.
With the AdCap desiccant capsules, Sanner offers a 360 degree moisture protection for solid pharmaceuticals such as tablets and capsules, as well as food supplements. Without losing effectiveness, the desiccant capsules adsorb moisture through a cardboard disc on the top, as well as through a unique grid structure on the side of the capsule. The grid structure ensures the highest patient safety, as it eliminates potential confusion with the drugs. AdCap is delivered in easy-to-handle quantities in aluminum bags. This entails a lower weight and fewer residues per packaging unit.
Both desiccant solutions are suited for global application. They comply with all relevant European and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regulations for contact with food and drugs, and are listed in a Type III Drug Master File (DMF). To offer customers high flexibility, both the desiccant pillow packs and sachets from Sanner can be processed on all standard dispensing equipment and filling lines.
