Rethinking Oral Solid Dose Packaging

Tablets and capsules are today’s most popular drug delivery forms but can exhibit stability issues associated with moisture, oxygen and volatile organic compound (VOC) impurities. This webinar discusses the development of specialized oral solid dose (OSD) packaging solutions with active desiccant and scavenger management technology. Sources of moisture, oxygen and VOCs in blister packaging are reviewed along with common strategies for mitigation and the differences between active and barrier technologies are explained. Aptar Pharma’s Activ-Blister™ Solutions are introduced as a highly effective solution for OSD packaging that provides exemplary product protection and can also expedite time-to-market. To support the design of an optimal blister package an accelerated shelf-life determination process is presented. This process uses an assessment of stability over a broad range of environmental conditions to develop a predictive model for shelf life and enable the development of theoretical blister designs that deliver the desired performance.
