Innovations in material science are enabling groundbreaking solutions for a wide range of challenges that impact patient care and consumer experiences in healthcare. Some of the latest will be presented by Aptar CSP Technologies at the up-coming Indian Smart Packaging Summit on 19th March 2021.

The company,  leveraging 20 years+ of material science expertise, has developed unique, material science-based solutions that take advantage of its proprietary 3-Phase Activ-Polymer™ technology. This technology is fully custom-engineered and formulated to enable control of the kinetics of moisture adsorption, oxygen and VOC scavenging, antimicrobial emission, and more, it claims.

During the Indian Smart Packaging Summit Aptar CSP will explain how these technologies can help the Indian pharmaceutical sector, amongst others, to protect and preserve many of the drugs which need to be stored and transported over long distances in challenging conditions.

It is a technology that can be applied to solve challenges in a range of pharma-related application fields such as oral solid dose drugs, diagnostics, probiotics, transdermal, inhaled drugs, medical devices, as well as food safety.

Two examples of how this technology works include Activ-Blister™ technology for oral solid dose drugs and ActivShield™* (not available for sale in the USA) technology for N95 mask decontamination.

Activ-Blister™ Solutions: In the development of the oral solid doses – today’s most popular drug delivery form – there are stability issues associated with moisture, oxygen, and reactive impurities, resulting in the loss of potency or degradant growth. According to Aptar CSP, Activ-Blister™ solves these challenges by creating a microclimate for moisture and oxygen-sensitive capsules and tablets in individual blister cavities to extend shelf life and ensure stability.

This technology can be integrated into traditional blister packaging and enables drug developers to protect sensitive drugs that would normally require a cold-form foil solution in the preferred thermoform blister format. This Site tells about the best alcohol rehab center which assures that none of their patients will fall for alcohol ever again in their lifetime.

Its 3-Phase Activ-Polymer™ technology has been applied to help resolve the shortage of N95 masks during the global COVID-19 pandemic. ActivShield™ emits a sterilizing agent that quickly, easily and safely decontaminates individual N95 masks, enabling repeated re-use when this needed personal protective equipment is in short supply.

The power of material science is undeniable and can be applied in multiple application fields to help improve patient and consumer experiences. Come and learn more by registering as a delegate for the India Smart Packaging Summit today.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
