Abstract

Gerresheimer has recently developed a new tablet container called Duma® Twist-Off Protect that offers a new level of water vapour and oxygen barrier for sensitive solid dose formulations. It provides improved stability for moisture and oxygen sensitive products and by this allow prolongation of shelf life.

Today the industry uses desiccants or scavengers to reduce or eliminate both water vapour and oxygen from the primary packaging. Duma® Twist-Off Protect offers with its improved barrier a passive protection of the content, an advantage which e.g avoids overdrying of the content by the desiccant.

A commercial benefit is that the elimination of desiccant or scavenger bags allows the reduction of the packaging size which will contribute to the over-all cost for the supply chain of the relevant product. The elimination of desiccant or scavenger bags will facilitate the withdrawal of the tablets and prevent that the bags will block the content.

  • New tablet container called Duma® Twist-Off Protect:
  • New level of water vapour and oxygen barrier for sensitive solid dose formulations
  • Better stability for moisture and oxygen sensitive products and prolongation of shelf life
  • Improved barrier a passive protection of the content
  • Reduction of the packaging size
