Available in a variety of tailored features and in all-paperboard and plastic-hybrid formats, Keystone Folding Box secondary packaging systems for injectable pharma products are suitable for prefilled syringes, autoinjector pens, vials, and ampules, as well as combinations of these. They meet a range of needs through options such as tamper evidence and child-resistance via reclosable locking mechanisms—all while ensuring product protection throughout the supply chain.
The portfolio includes:
- The vial pack line of cartons has designs for packaging a single vial or ampule, or as many products as a program requires. The easy-to-store packs allow ample real estate for detailed usage instructions—a must for healthcare professionals and caregivers, including staff in hospitals, assisted living facilities and at-home care settings.
- A line of injectable packs is suitable for prefilled syringes or autoinjector pens, and can be designed to include ancillary items like sterile wipes.
- The InjectaSlide package incorporates a thermoformed tray that slides inside a carton and into a locked position; a lock release button must be pressed to unlock and slide the tray forward for easy access to each dose.
Keystone’s secondary packaging solutions for injectables are appropriate for automated or manual production, and can be used for everything from clinical trials and academic settings to mail order drugs, compounding pharmacies, and other full-scale commercialization scenarios. The packaging is suitable for use in temperatures as low as -80°C, which is typical with cold chain distribution required of injectable products.
Child-resistant features are available with several of the solutions, and for outpatient or in-home use, multi-dose packs can be designed capable of prompting patients to administer the correct dose at the proper date and time.
“Medications administered by injection are often high-value and delivered in fragile primary packaging such as vials or prefilled syringes. Injectable products require protection that recognizes and respects these circumstances, and that can accommodate the various shapes, sizes and special features our packaging solutions provide,” says Ward Smith, director of marketing & business development at Keystone Folding Box. “Our diverse, customizable range of secondary packaging solutions for injectable products exemplifies Keystone’s commitment to ensuring product protection and enhanced consumer experiences in every design.”
