When it comes to Pharma products, packaging plays a crucial role. The functions of good packaging can be classified under two heads: Containment and Protection.
Pharma packaging must provide strong containment against leaks, diffusion and permeation. It must also be strong enough to hold the contents during transportation and handling.
Pharma packaging must also protect the contents from light and moisture, oxygen and biological contamination. It must also be tamper-proof and carry the correct information and identification of the product.
While packaging material for the primary pack is selected based on these criteria, the filling, packaging and sealing process is equally important.
