Oxygen barriers for medicine bottles
Oxygen Protection Solutions prevent pharma products from getting exposed to oxidative degradation, to lose their efficiency. The presence of oxygen may result in colour change and odour generation in pharma products. Thus, a lack of efficacy will also reduce the product's shelf life.
Solutions such as oxygen scavengers and indicators work effectively to avoid oxidative degradation. They protect oxygen-sensitive medical devices and other products from oxidation. Ambient air contains 21% oxygen, enabling aerobic organisms' faster proliferation. Therefore, the oxygen protection solutions are perfect for keeping the primary packaging oxygen-free.
Oxygen scavengers and oxygen indicators can potentially eliminate the proliferation of aerobic organisms and enhance the product's shelf life for longer. Oxygen protection solutions are passed through USFDA, 21 CFR and EU standards. Thus, these solutions reduce the need for additives and vacuum packaging and help prevent the proliferation of bacteria, mould and mildew.
