Compliant and Promotional CARTONS

Pharmaceutical folding boxes get attention and offer product protection.

Cartons complete with integral divider can be constructed from flat paperboard blanks with the use of a pharmaceutical packaging machine. Resulting top-opening NeoTOP cartons feature a reclosable, tamper-evident lid. Made from 100% paperboard with a high recycled content, the cartons are easily disposed. The clamping and cushioning action of the product divider protects the ampules, vials, applicators, tablet blisters, or other enclosed products. Pack inserts up to double-A4 size or in booklet form can be laid in. Dividella Pharmaceutical Packaging Machines, Grabs, Switzerland.

Printed pharmaceutical folding cartons are available on a contract basis from a specialist in printed pharmaceutical packaging components. One- to six-color printing is performed on Heidelberg presses that are also capable of in-line application of aqueous coatings. Thermal computer-to-plate technology accelerates production time and provides sharper resolution than possible with manual film processing and stripping. Fast response extends to carton prototypes and proofs as well as final printing. CGMPs are followed in the manufacture of all folding cartons. New Jersey Packaging, Fairfield, NJ.

A senior-friendly and child-resistant blister package that meets federal regulations for drug packaging features an outer carton with a locking mechanism to keep children out. A tear-resistant laminate can be added to the carton to increase its child resistance for highly toxic drugs. The Dosepak carton is made from bleached paperboard that provides high-quality graphic reproduction of logos, colors, and other brand-identification elements that aid in product promotion. An inner fold-over blister card attached to the carton offers space for information to guide consumers through the proper dosage regimen. Remaining attached from initial opening through discarding, the card ensures that safety features and labeling information are always intact and accessible. Westvaco Corp., New York, NY.
