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 impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
