As part of an effort to ease the transition between clinical and commercial launch for blister products, Almac has added new blistering technology at its US commercial packaging facility in Audubon, PA.
The Klockner EAS blister line can produce a range of blister formats processing both thermoform and coldform materials. The range offers solutions for client packaging projects requiring low volume runs for the evaluation of different packaging material combinations and cost effective stability packaging.
The facilities in Pennsylvania, which originally opened in 2011 , offer dissolution testing services and various chromatography technologies. Almac also recently completed a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Queen’s University, Belfast.
David Moore, Director of Operations at the Audubon facility, said, “Almac are offering seamless services from clinical supply, packaging development/design and stability testing to final commercial pack from its two Pennsylvania sites.
“Clients can now easily transition from the clinical blister presentation though various development packs, with Almac providing all the associated stability services .”
The addition of a blister line complements an array of clinical and commercial packaging capabilities of blistering, bottling, walleting and vial /ampoule labelling available at Almac.
