Form-Fill-Seal Packaging for the Pharmaceutical Industry

Pharmaceutical Cream Packaging Solutions

As an FDA registered drug repackager, Liquipak is qualified to work with a wide range of Pharmaceutical Industry clients. We designed the single use sample packets highlighted here as a pharmaceutical cream packaging solution to dispense an over the counter (OTC) topical cream. Following the customer’s specifications a package was developed which featured a side spout configuration and a child-resistant tear notch.

Packets were made from plastic and foil laminated packaging film were reverse printed with the print laminated between the layers of the film to protect it. Vertical form-fill-seal packaging equipment was equipped with dedicated product contact parts. Each packet weighed 1.5 g (± 0.5 g), and was 3″ in length, 1-3/8″ width, and produced in a quantity of over 385,000. Packets required custom packaging: filled packets were individually attached to a printed sample card and then packed into dispenser cartons, and included lot-coding and expiration dating. Quality was assured through digital test stand compression testing, digital gram-scale weigh testing, component and batch traceability, labeling, product accountability, and AQL final inspection.
