Non-interactive films

These special packaging materials preserve intended potency of contents by minimizing sorption to the contact surface. Non-interactive (NI) materials are the key for making this happen.

Certain applications with highly diluted active ingredients, such as parenterals, are prime candidates.

Interaction of contents and contact surface

When changing dosage form from glass containers like vials and ampoules to a plastic premixed bag, the chief concern is interaction.
This is an unavoidable challenge, and understanding the interaction mechanism between contents and packaging, including the manufacturing process is extremely important.

Leachables

Polyolefin oligomers, residual solvents, various additives, adhesives, and active ingredients volatilized from ink may elute from packaging materials.
These leachables cause drug contents to become unstable and break down through various chemical reactions.
Olefin bags cannot prevent leachables from migrating into solution over time.
Our work to select and develop material which prevents sorption and leachables is extremely important.

Through completing this NI material, we have created a flexible, glass-like material which meets the needs for sensitive drugs in liquid dosage form.

Even if we use materials to prevent interaction, depending on the
chemical structure of the drug contents, we may need to create a
custom multilayer solution to realize the shelf-life you are looking for
