Airnov Healthcare Packaging, a global leader in controlled atmosphere packaging, will exhibit a range of solutions at the Connect in Pharma event, due to be held in Geneva from 14-15 September 2022.

Connect in Pharma is a new feature to the industry calendar. Based in the heart of Europe’s pharmaceutical sector, it promises to be a one-stop hub for the development, industrialization, and contract manufacturing of drug delivery systems and pack and filling technology.

Attendees will have the opportunity to discover the latest designs and manufacturers in controlled atmosphere packaging from Airnov, solutions that are built to protect healthcare products from humidity and oxygen to maintain drug stability and extend shelf life.

In particular, guests are invited to discover three innovations, including – 

Eqius – Airnov’s equilibrium RH stabilizers are sorbent products that maintain a certain humidity level in pharmaceutical packaging in cases where specific relative humidity conditions are required. These products are specifically of interest to protect dry powder inhalers, gelatine capsules, gummies, and marijuana products.

Oxynov – These barrier bottles are engineered with a six-layer structure to block oxygen ingress and provide an excellent barrier against moisture. One of these layers includes Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol (EVOH). This is especially effective at inhibiting the oxidation of sensitive drugs.

Hat-B – Airnov’s latest innovative vial carries numerous sustainable features, a key theme explored at the inaugural Connect in Pharma. Hat-B vials are designed to limit carbon footprint with an optimized amount of plastic. 

They contain an adjustable desiccant quantity and incorporate versatile sorbent material to fit stability requirements. The vial, suitable for the pharmaceutical, diagnostic, and nutraceutical markets, is available in two sizes and is compatible with filling lines.

Laurent Stoufflet, head of sales EMEA at Airnov, said, “We are tremendously excited about exhibiting at this brand-new event in Switzerland and look forward to meeting new and existing contacts to discuss how we can support each other. It promises to be a packed two days full of inspiring presentations and products.”

Visitors to Connect in Pharma, hosted at Geneva’s Palexpo, will be able to find Airnov at Stand D15.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
