Singapore: US-based Multisorb Technologies will introduce its Calculations through Operations Program, StripPax System, and StabilOx System to the Indian market at the country's premier pharmaceutical packaging exhibition, PharmaPack, to be held in Mumbai from September 12-14, 2013. The exhibition will witness over 300 exhibitors showcasing their latest developments in packaging and processing.
Under Multisorb's Calculations through Operations Program, the company's elite technical staff works with pharmaceutical companies to provide an optimized sorbent (desiccant, oxygen absorber, etc) designed specifically for the pharma product and its packaging. If canister or packet sorbents are the drug maker's required format, Multisorb's engineers assist them in selecting the related sorbent dispenser with the appropriate options for the packaging line. Multisorb also provides professional technical support during and after implementation of the system.
Multisorb's leading systems are the StripPax and StabilOx Systems. The systems combine the StabilOx Oxygen Absorbing Packets or Canisters or StripPax Sorbent Packets with their respective corresponding dispenser, providing unparalleled insertion efficiency that is not achievable with unrelated sorbents and dispensers.
Pharmaceutical manufacturers can rely on StripPax Packets to protect the integrity and stability of their moisture sensitive products. StripPax Packets are compact sorbents with a high moisture adsorption capacity. The packets are offered in a variety of sorbent blends and sizes to meet specific packaging needs. As part of the StripPax System, StripPax Packets are designed to be inserted into the packaging using a StripPax Dispenser.
Odor free and non-toxic StabilOx Packets and Canister resolve product instability issues related to oxygen degradation. StabilOx Packets and Canisters effectively reduce package headspace oxygen levels while managing headspace moisture and drug product free moisture to reduce or eliminate oxidative degradation. Both StabilOx Packets and Canisters are uniquely designed to be run on their respective StabilOx Dispensers as part of the StabilOx System.
At PharmaPack, as part of the StripPax System, Multisorb will demonstrate its APA-2000 StripPax Dispenser with an optional bottling line interface. The APA-2000 high-speed automated dispenser is capable of dispensing rates of up to 300 packets per minute, giving it the ability to keep up with the fastest packaging line speeds. The dispensers are compatible with an array of packaging line configurations, including horizontal flow wrappers, VFFS, bottling lines, thermoformed pouching, and other layouts. Constructed with the highest quality sensors, drive mechanisms, and cutters, the APA-2000 offers exceptional durability and provides the highest level of performance. APA dispenser will provide uninterrupted dispensing when an optional splicing station cabinet is used - the operator never has to stop the line to refill the sorbent packets. All of these capabilities add up to higher efficiencies for the packaging operations.
