One of the most widespread industries all over the world is the packaging. An industry that finds applications in different domains like textile, food and food processing, pharmaceuticals and so on. A few years ago packaging used to be a simple thing that is organizing by any company. With technology development, many other applications such as branding, quality control, safety as well as security of the product were created.

The pharmaceutical packaging industry is owing to the sensitive nature of products,  faces a lot of challenges problems that need to overcome. Poor packaging can cause chemical alterations in the product damaging their curative ability and ineffective performance. Hence, any medicinal industry is required for the strongest packaging standards and often face challenges like: 

Dosage and Drug Information

For better results, any medicine must be consumed according to the prescribed dose. It is mandatory that the necessary dosage information, as well as the drug that it is composed with, must be present on the packaging of the product itself to avoid any confusion. Moreover, other valuable information such as expiry date and the serial or even batch number should be mentioned on the packaging for simplifying tracking.

Newly developed drugs vs packaging material

Development of new drugs is serious for pharmaceutical industry innovation too and many of them are often in conflict with the materials being used to packaging them. For instance, there are certain drug combinations that lead to flaking of glass packaging and at the same time another situation we can face when silicone oil is used in prefilled syringes to lubricate the plunger in. So the lubricant often disturbs the composition of the protein complexes which can lead to the need for newer packaging materials like pharmaceutical aluminum tubes, collapsible tubes and boxes.

Dosage and Drug Information

For better results, any medicine must be consumed according to the prescribed dose. It is mandatory that the necessary dosage information, as well as the drug that it is composed with, must be present on the packaging of the product itself to avoid any confusion. Moreover, other valuable information such as expiry date and the serial or even batch number should be mentioned on the packaging for simplifying tracking.

Averting Forged Products

With so many products from a variety of brands flooding the market, it is not surprising that forged drugs are also on the rise. The danger of these drugs cannot be underestimated because of the potential side effects they might have on the customer. In order to prevent this major problem, pharmaceutical packaging is an important aspect. Research and innovation in this domain have led to an increase in scannable codes, hologram stickers, UV prints that ensure that official products stand apart from the fake ones.

One of the major challenges that the industry faces is due to sustained exposure to heat as well as humidity, the product may lose its healing capabilities, rendering the product completely useless. The pharmaceutical packaging materials must be chosen very carefully and should not let external factors affect the product.
