Blister packaging is todays most popular and growing packaging option worldwide, driven by its unique ability to provide Increased medicine protection, improved patient compliance and precise dose accuracy. Contract blister packaging of drug products replaced bottles during this rebuilding phase. Today, the majority of prescription drug products are blister packaged for retail in Europe, while the majority of retail prescription drugs in the U.S. are supplied in bulk bottles. Clinical trial drug supplies (solid oral doses) have historically been packaged in bottles rather than in blisters. First, of blister packaging costs more per unit dose than bottle packaging, primarily due to the small packaging runs needed to produce product for several hundred patients. Second, the time in which to complete the entire process was longer in duration with blister packaging due to the acquisition of blister tooling and the associated film and foil supplies. The majority of blister tooling for commercial equipment can average from six to sixteen weeks to complete and qualify. This additional project time was a significant disadvantage due to the short lead times associated with supplying clinical trial materials for patient evaluation. Third, most companies have a large investment in bottle filling equipment and few have blister packaging equipment for clinical trial supplies. Pharma packaging companies provides smart source for complete pharmaceutical packagings, which are widely used for clinical trials, drugs promotion, as well as commercial packaging. As secondary packaging for pharmaceutical drugs, tablets and pills that are pre-packed in a primary blister/aluminium foil combination, your product can be easily pushed through, out of the blister strip for use, but with clearly visible and complete assurance that no tampering has occurred. A wide variety of blister film materials and blister foil materials are available to choose from for pharmaceutical clinical packaging. Forming film choices include but are not limited to PVC, polypropylene, several coating grades of PVC/PVDC, and PVC/Aclar. A wide range of foils can be used to provide push through and/or peel/push product dispensing. More recently, cold form aluminum blister formats are being used to provide maximum product protection. This package format uses a formable foil to create the blister cavity and a foil lidding to seal the package. The blister packaging machine or blistering equipment can deal with a variety of product sizes in either cold form or thermoform blister configurations. The machine can produce an all-aluminum blister package for products where moisture and light permeability must be kept to a minimum. Where a clear package is desired, the machine can quickly be changed over to produce a thermoform blister package using a high moisture barrier PVC/ACLAR
