Active Barrier Packaging Solutions

The Perfect Match for LOG’s Barrier Bottles

In addition to barrier bottles, LOG offers innovative active components as part of a complete packaging solution.

ActiveGuard™

Standard desiccant solutions, which include canisters or sachets, are commonly placed loose inside bottles. This has the following drawbacks:

  • Desiccants might fall out and not be returned to the bottle
  • Desiccants could be swallowed by mistake
  • Desiccants are in direct contact with the tablets, which might cause the tablets to dry out, possibly chip, break or disintegrate.

 

LOG’s innovative and patent-pending ActiveGuard™ solves all of these challenges. The ActiveGuard™ is placed inside the neck of LOG’s specially designed Barrier Bottles and is locked into place to prevent it from moving in any direction. The ActiveGuard™ is prefilled with moisture desiccants and/or oxygen absorbers according to customer requirements.

 

The maximal amount of desiccant contained in the ActiveGuard™ is 2 grams for the 33mm neck finish and 4 grams for the 38mm neck finish.

 

Benefits – Patient Centricity:

  • Scavengers cannot fall out of the packaging and doesn’t need to be returned
  • Scavengers cannot be swallowed by mistake
  • The ActiveGuard™ controls the release of tablets

 

Benefits – Health Improvement:

  • Contrary to closures with embedded desiccant chambers, the ActiveGuard™ allows the use of an induction heat seal liner providing tamper evidence and a hermetic seal during shelf life
  • The ActiveGuard™ can be prefilled with desiccants and/or oxygen absorbers according to customer requirements
  • Desiccant does not come in direct contact with the tablets, avoiding possible damage

 

Benefits – Packaging Optimization:

  • Positioned in previously unused bottle space
  • Does not reduce valuable tablet space
  • Reduces head space
  • Positioning of the ActiveGuard™ can be validated easily
