Las Vegas, NV (September 26, 2005) - Buffalo, NY-based Multisorb Technologies introduces the new StabilOx(R) specialty oxygen absorber. This innovative product eliminates oxygen from pharmaceutical drug and vitamin supplement packages while managing moisture levels and protecting drug performance.
StabilOx is able to maintain an intermediate equilibrium relative humidity within sealed environments, ensuring the integrity of drug compositions. StabilOx offers manufacturers a convenient solution to extend product shelf life, improve consumer safety and enhance brand appeal.
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 is able to control oxygen levels to below one percent with relative humidity levels of between 40-50 percent. StabilOx prevents the cracking and leeching associated with over-drying, while at the same time preventing degradation resulting from high moisture levels. The humidity within the package is entirely controllable down to about 40 percent, depending on the needs of a particular pharmaceutical or nutraceutical formulation.
Its ability to precisely control both oxygen and moisture within packaging sets StabilOx apart other sorbent products. StabilOx answers the needs of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical manufacturers seeking oxygen absorption for solid dose pharmaceuticals in high-density polyethylene (HDPE) bottles, trays and blister packaging.
StabilOx sorbents are available in various sizes of tablets, packets, and self-adhesive forms for blister packaging. StabilOx works with automated dispensing equipment for high-speed packaging lines.
Multisorb Technologies has been an innovator in sorbent technology for over 40 years. Founded in 1961 by John S. Cullen to protect products against the damaging effects of moisture, today Multisorb is North America's largest producer of packaged and fabricated sorbents and the world leader in active packaging components.
