When it comes to pharma and health-care products, many of which are subject to stringent regulatory law, manufacturers and suppliers must be meticulous when it comes to packaging. After all, products must reach the consumer in perfect condition to be effective and, more importantly, be safe for use.

Packaging specialists have a lot to consider when it comes to the packaging of their products. Chemical and physical stability of the formulation, product integrity, safety, packaging processes and delivery methods all play a key part in determining the shelf life of a product.

Which is where active packaging (AP) comes in. Medicines, health supplements, medical devices, surgical equipment and diagnostic kits all need specialised protection, where elements such as desiccants and oxygen absorbers are added to ensure that they are effective, wastage is reduced and they are completely safe for patient usage.
