Dessicant capsules offer optimized moisture protection, improved user safety

A supplier of plastic packaging for healthcare products, Sanner GmbH (Bensheim, Germany) has introduced drop-in desiccant capsules with optimized moisture adsorption and stability. AdCap capsules are easy to handle, universally applicable, and comply with global requirements for drug and patient safety.

In addition to the proven 1-g version, AdCap dessicants are available with 2 and 2.5 g fillings. The choice of filling materials has also been expanded to include silica gel, molecular sieve, and blends.

The product's high squeeze stability prevents desiccants from leaking, even under high pressure. At the same time, AdCap offers effective all-around moisture protection.

The desiccant capsules not only adsorb moisture through a cardboard disc on the top, but also through a unique grid structure on the side of the capsule. This ensures effective moisture adsorption, regardless of the capsule's position inside the package.

The grid design of the capsule eliminates potential confusion with capsules or tablets, thus preventing accidental ingestion and improving patient safety.

Sized to be compatible with global market standards, the capsules are cost efficient and can be used with standard dispensing and filling lines.

AdCap complies with all relevant European and FDA regulations for contact with food and drugs. The products are also listed in a Type III Drug Master File.
