Advancements in Pharmaceutical Packaging Testing Help Drug Makers Improve Shelf Life

Posted by John Bogart on Fri, Aug 21, 2015

Though virtually unchanged since 1970, the familiar amber vials used by pharmacists for decades have recently fallen under scrutiny. In 2013, an industry-driven initiative to expand US Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) packaging classification systems sparked dialogue between regulators, manufacturers, and contract packagers and repackagers about improving packaging integrity regulations for determining the level of barrier protection provided by packaging systems. These new changes were implemented to maximize the shelf life of liquid and solid oral dosage forms by eliminating moisture vapor permeation in the packaging. At the time, USP specified the categories of “well-closed” and “tight” in its classification, with the latter used much more frequently. However, certain medications require packaging beyond “tight”—requiring no moisture permeation. Now, two years later, drug makers are using modern testing instruments and special testing techniques to improve product stability and shelf life under the new standards.

8 Key Elements of A Moisture Measurement Protocol

Posted by John Bogart on Fri, Feb 20, 2015

Accurately and consistently measuring moisture – in most any type of product, from plastics to potato chips – has the potential to save organizations millions of dollars a year in improved productivity, reduced waste, increased consistency and improved quality. Measuring, in and of itself, however, is of little value if the companies doing it fail to put protocols in place to ensure that the testing is done correctly and that the results are accurate, consistent, and reliable. Whether you’re in the process of establishing protocols for the first time or looking to improve those already in place, we’ve outlined the most important considerations that should be part of any practical moisture measurement protocol.
