PARIS, February 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
User-Friendly Solution for Moisture-Sensitive Formulations with benefits to patients, formulators and packaging developers
LOG Pharma Packaging announced today that it will showcase its innovative patent pending line of ActiveGuard™ packaging solutions at Pharmapack 2018 in Paris, France from 7-8 February.
ActiveGuard™ was developed with the goal of providing a user friendly packaging solution for sensitive formulations. It is placed firmly in the neck of LOG's specially designed barrier bottles. While allowing controlled dispensing of tablets, ActiveGuard™ eliminates the need for desiccant sachets or canisters, and removes the risk of accidental swallowing as identified by EU regulation (EMA/606103/2014). ActiveGuard™ cannot fall in or out of the container, and does not come into direct contact with the tablets, avoiding any possible damage.
ActiveGuard™ is prefilled with moisture desiccants and/or oxygen absorbers according to customer requirements. The new solution utilizes previously unused space in the neck of the bottle, and enables the use of an induction heat seal liner to hermetically close the bottle and provide a tamper-proof seal (see video clip for details). In combination with LOG's MonoBlock™ i-Series bottles, ActiveGuard™ provides a complete packaging solution for moisture sensitive formulations.
"ActiveGuard™ is at the forefront of innovative pharmaceutical packaging applying a patient-centric approach to packaging, while meeting the most stringent market and regulatory demands in the pharma industry. Our customers have total confidence in our products, knowing that LOG's quality system ensures integrity, consistency and transparency ‒ without compromise," stated Ephraim Ulmer, CEO of LOG Pharma Packaging.
Established in 1971, LOG Pharma Packaging is the trusted partner of global pharmaceutical companies providing innovative primary packaging solutions.
