The highest patient safety and 3600 moisture protection for pharma and food supplements
With the new AdCap product family, Sanner, the manufacturer of plastic packaging for pharma, medical and healthcare products, offers a 360o solution for the highest moisture protection within the package. Reportedly, AdCap combines the advantages of conventional desiccant capsules and canisters, and ensures optimal moisture adsorption and exceptional stability. AdCap is easy to handle, universally applicable and complies with global requirements for drug and patient safety.
The new AdCap product family consists of drop-in desiccant capsules for the protection of moisture-sensitive products. They are best suited for solid pharma products such as tablets and capsules, as well as food supplements. AdCap is the consistent further development of the predecessor ‘360° Capsule’ from Sanner. “During our strategic realignment, we placed an even stronger focus on one of our core competencies – the product category Pharma Desiccant Packaging. This already brought forth the new AdPack desiccant pillow packs. Now, we have enhanced the development of our desiccant capsules and established the AdCap product family,” explains Holger Frank, Chief Executive Officer, Sanner.
AdCap is available in three different sizes: apart from the proven one gram version, Sanner now also offers the desiccant capsules with fillings of two and 2.5 grams. The choice of filling materials has also been extended: AdCap is available with silica gel, molecular sieve and blends. AdCap combines the advantages of conventional capsules and canisters. The high squeeze stability prevents desiccants from leaking, even under high pressure. At the same time, AdCap offers effective all-round moisture protection.
The desiccant capsules not only adsorb moisture through a cardboard disc on the top, but also through a unique grid structure on the side of the capsule. even when the capsule is lying on the cardboard side, this ensures moisture adsorption without losing effectiveness after filling within the container – regardless of the capsule’s position inside the package. Moreover, the distinct design of AdCap offers the highest patient safety, as its unique grid structure eliminates potential confusion with capsules or tablets, and prevents accidental ingestion. Additionally, the good printing quality increases the readability of the safety instructions.
AdCap desiccant capsules are suited for application all around the world. Because they are dimensioned according to market standards, the capsules are cost-efficient and compatible with standard dispensing equipment and filling lines. AdCap is delivered in easy-to-handle quantities in aluminum bags. This entails a lower weight and less residue per packaging unit. The desiccants ensure a dust-free application. AdCap complies with all relevant European and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations for contact with food and drugs. The products are also listed in a Type III Drug Master File (DMF).
AdCap was presented for the first time at CPhI Worldwide in Paris in October 2014. Visitors to CPhI India will have the possibility to see the desiccant capsules at Stand V87, Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre, from December 2-4, 2014.
