AdPack is an efficient, economical, and safe solution for the protection of moisture-sensitive pharmaceuticals, such as tablets and capsules, inside the packaging.

Sanner GmbH, a manufacturer of plastic packaging for the pharmaceutical, medical and healthcare industry, will be introducing its new AdPack desiccant pillow packs at CPhI this year (Booth 2K61). According to the company, AdPack is an efficient, economical, and safe solution for the protection of moisture-sensitive pharmaceuticals, such as tablets and capsules, inside the packaging.

“With the AdPack desiccant pillow packs, we have developed a new drop-in solution for moisture protection inside the packaging,” Sanner CEO Holger Frank commented in a press release. Frank added that he believes the new product offers customers a cost-efficient solution with the advantages of GMP-compliant production, professional risk management, and traceability.

Designed for pharmaceutical applications, the AdPack product family consists of desiccant pillow packs that are filled into the packaging along with the drugs to protect against moisture. AdPack complies with European and FDA regulations for contact with food and drugs.

The pillow packs are available as single strips or on reel, and are made of durable and tear-resistant Tyvek material. AdPack is permeable and ensures long-term adsorption of moisture and odors. Due to the flexible non-dusting, lint-free Tyvek material, the packaged pharmaceuticals remain intact at all times. The AdPack desiccant pillow packs take up little space within a package and their distinct shape eliminates potential confusion with capsules or tablets, and prevents accidental ingestion.

AdPack is compatible with standard semi- and fully-automated dispensing equipment and filling lines. Depending on the type of machine, AdPack is available as single pillow packs or as strips on reel. A punch hole in the sealing seam of AdPack on reel ensures a clean pack separation during the dispensing process.

In addition to integrated desiccant solutions, Sanner will also showcase another drop-in solution—the AdCap desiccant capsules. They adsorb moisture through a cardboard disc on the top, as well as through a unique grid structure on the side of the capsule. This ensures moisture adsorption after filling, even when the capsule is lying on the cardboard side.
