Achieving stability in pharmaceutical formulations or medical devices requires a difficult balance between increasingly complex variables. Success is a vital prerequisite to a new drug reaching the marketplace. StabilOx Oxygen Absorber helps achieve this without toxic packaging components or expensive drug product formulation changes. StabilOx Oxygen Absorbers provide a simple solution that resides inside the packaging instead of the drug product.
StabilOx Oxygen Absorbers effectively reduces package headspace oxygen levels while managing headspace moisture and drug product free moisture to reduce or eliminate oxidative degradation. StabilOx Oxygen Absorbers accomplish oxygen absorption while managing the drug product’s free moisture levels and related molecular mobility associated with most chemical degradation pathways.
StabilOx Oxygen Absorbers are offered in a variety of formats and sizes to fit your needs. We support your packaging and formulation teams to ensure that you get the right StabilOx Oxygen Absorber for your needs.
Traditional inorganic oxygen absorbers rely on the irreversible oxidation of the scavenger. Since the reaction requires moisture, the moisture must be provided in the scavenger itself, the product, or from the package environment.
StabilOx Oxygen Absorbers provide its own moisture to initialize the oxygen removal process from the package. If oxygen and moisture continue to permeate the packaging, it then relies on package moisture ingress for continued oxygen absorption while establishing an optimal equilibrium relative humidity in the package headspace. This is critical in retaining drug performance, stability, and integrity.
Today’s drug formulations and innovative packaging choices offer myriad opportunities to attract consumers. At the same time, new packaging challenges create uncertainty.
StabilOx Oxygen Absorbers are a unique product that manages moisture and oxygen inside your package to respond to ever-changing conditions within the packaged environment. This ensures drug stability, as well as performance, and often allows for longer than anticipated product shelf life, increasing product quality and revenues.
