New oxygen-absorber protects infusion bags
At the Pharmapack trade show, which ended yesterday, Swiss-based chemical group Clariant introduced a new line of Oxy-Guard oxygen-absorber packets for the liquid infusion market. These packets reportedly were developed jointly by Clariant Healthcare Packaging and Nanjing Tianhua Tech.
Standard sizes available
According to the group, the iron-based absorbers can help prevent degradation and color changes caused by oxygen in liquid infusion bags containing emulsion, amino acid, nutrition liquid and other pharmaceutical products. Standard packet sizes are available depending on the oxygen absorption capacity required for the application.
