How To Choose Primary Packaging Polymers
Neopac explain in this video the characteristics of Fleximed®, and how it is an innovative pharma packaging solution.
The Fleximed® product is made of a patented polymer laminate comprising two medical grade PP sheets sandwiching a layer of PET that has had both its sides coated in silicon oxide. As we have outlined in this article, this type of measure ensures that the small tube has incredible barrier properties beyond those of polymers of cyclo-olefins, and at the same time maintaining clarity and transparency. This laminate resolves many potential issues associated with other primary packaging materials as the tubes do not break or contain glass particles. There are no compatibility issues with proteins or peptides, no pH-shift of sensitive formulations, and they are free of silicone and tungsten. Fleximed® tubes are delivered gamma sterilized and can be sterilized further by autoclave at a temperature of 121°. The system also comes with various attachment options to ensure full compatibility in real world situations.
