Active Packaging Technology®
The StripPax System is your turnkey solution; it combines the advantages of StripPax Sorbent / Desiccant Packets with the proven reliability of our APA-series StripPax Dispensers. StripPax Packets are designed to manage moisture and / or volatiles within your package headspace to promote product stability. Able to keep up with the fastest packaging line speeds, our dispensers are compatible with a variety of packaging line configurations, including bottling lines, horizontal flow wrappers, VFFS, thermoformed trays, and other layouts. We use only the highest quality sensors, drive mechanisms, and cutters. With optional splicing station cabinets, the StripPax Dispenser does not need to stop for an operator to refill the sorbent packets, offering uninterrupted dispensing. All of these capabilities add up to higher efficiencies for your packaging operations
StripPax Packets have a low-profile, compact shape that saves space and displaces a minimum amount of product. The soft flexible packets will not damage tablets or capsules like hard canisters may.
StripPax Packets are made with uncoated, welded, medical-grade Tyvek®, an extremely tough durable non-woven material made from 100% pure high-density polyethylene fibers (HDPE). Tyvek® offers superior strength, making the packets virtually puncture proof and eliminating the risk of leakage and product contamination. StripPax Packets are as strong wet as they are dry. The Tyvek® fibers allow for the easy passage of moisture and gasses, but prevent desiccant from leaking out and dusting. Additionally, the abrasion resistant surface will not contaminate the product with lint.
StripPax Packets are available in a wide variety of sizes with a wide selection of sorbents (silica gel, indicating silica gel, molecular sieve, activated carbon, and more) and sorbent blends for multifunctional protection to meet your exact specifications. StripPax Packets are fully supported by a Type III Drug Master File.
StripPax Dispensers offer accurate, reliable dispensing. The dispensers are configurable to meet your needs (e.g. packet size, bottle size, multiple drops), and with speeds up to 300 packets per minute, StripPax Dispensers are among the fastest most accurate systems available.
StripPax Packets contribute to the stability profile/shelf life of many products within their packaging. To protect the packets’ capacity during packaging operations our APA-series of StripPax Dispensers are available with packet spool supply systems that can be purged with optional dry-air equipment. Dispensers include:
StripPax Packets have a Type III Drug Master File (including canister to StripPax Packet equivalency data) on file with the US-FDA, so changeover is easy and fast. A change from canisters to StripPax Packets can be implemented immediately under the US-FDA Packaging/Desiccant CBE Reference Guidance Document using a CBE notification for approved ANDA and NDA drug products. Such a change would be subsequently supported via stability data in your Annual Report. However, many pharmaceutical companies have made their change from canisters to StripPax Packets and simply stated it in their Annual Report to the FDA (with Multisorb equivalency data available upon request.)
