Multisorb Technologies, Inc: StabilOx Specialty Oxygen Scavenger
StabilOx™ Specialty Oxygen Absorbers work with the product andpackaging to resolve product instability issues related to oxygendegradation.
Pharmaceuticals dietary supplements botanical extracts and
diagnostic tests are often subject to oxygen- and moisture-mediated
degradation. Where oxygen is the primary degradation pathway StabilOx
eliminates oxygen from the packaged environment without exotic or expensive
formulation changes stopping drug degradation.
StabilOx oxygen absorbers are available in various formats to provide
stability solutions for virtually any packaging including high-density
polyethylene (HDPE) bottles trays and blister packs. This innovative
product eliminates oxygen while maintaining the equilibrium relative
humidity (ERH) in the package. This ensures the integrity of drug
compositions by preventing the cracking and leeching associated with
over-drying while at the same time preventing moisture-mediated
Achieving stability in pharmaceutical formulations or medical devices
requires a difficult balance between increasingly-complex variables. Success
is vital and a prerequisite for a new drug to reach the marketplace.
StabilOx oxygen absorbers provide a simple solution that resides inside the
packaging instead of the drug product.
StabilOx works with automated dispensing equipment for high-speed packaging
* Eliminate oxygen to prevent instability in pharmaceutical products
* Manage free moisture (ERH) to eliminate secondary degradation pathways
* Provide exceptional flexibility for any packaging operation
Whatever your packaging needs Multisorb has a StabilOx scavenger in a
format that fits the requirement.
