Sanner GmbH introduces the new AdCap® product family, which offers 360° moisture protection within the package. According to the vendor, AdCap combines the advantages of conventional desiccant capsules and canisters and ensures optimal moisture adsorption and exceptional stability. AdCap is easy to handle, universally applicable, and complies with global requirements for drug and patient safety.

The new AdCap product family consists of drop-in desiccant capsules for the protection of moisture-sensitive products. They are best suited for solid pharmaceuticals, such as tablets and capsules, as well as food supplements. AdCap follows the “360° Capsule” from Sanner.

AdCap is available in three different sizes: 1 g, 2 g, and 2.5 g. The choice of filling materials includes silica gel, molecular sieve, and blends. AdCap combines the advantages of conventional capsules and canisters. The high squeeze stability prevents desiccants from leaking, even under high pressure. At the same time, AdCap offers effective all-round 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. Even when the capsule is lying on the cardboard side, this ensures moisture adsorption without losing effectiveness after filling within the container—regardless of the capsule’s position inside the package. Moreover, the distinct design of AdCap offers the highest patient safety as its unique grid structure eliminates potential confusion with capsules or tablets and prevents accidental ingestion. Additionally, the print quality improves readability of the safety instructions.

AdCap desiccant capsules are suited for application worldwide. Because they are dimensioned according to market standards, the capsules are cost-efficient and compatible with standard dispensing equipment and filling lines. AdCap is delivered in easy-to-handle quantities in aluminum bags. This entails a lower weight and less residue per packaging unit. The desiccants ensure a dust-free application. 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.
