• Pandora Box – childproof packaging easy to use


    When their customer was looking for a solution combining security features, improved access to the product, intuitive use, sustainability and high-quality appearance, many solutions were discussed by the AR Packaging team. To ensure a favourable price and flexible delivery, conventional materials were agreed upon. The final result was the Pandora box, a single piece, child resistant packaging, made up of cardboard suitable for the pharmaceutical industry with barrier function. Due to its clever construction it can be automatically processed and packed at high speed. And although the concern for safe opening was high, the package is still simple to open and offers ease of use since consumers can easily remove the product.

    • Childproof
    • Developed for automatic processing
    • Folding carton solution with barrier function
    • Intuitive and easy use

    Although childproof solutions made of cartonboard are still rare, the Pandora box shows that this combination offers great potential for packaging solutions for many other industries like:

    • Non-food consumers goods
    • Personal care
    • Pharma & medical devices
    • Tobacco


  • Webinar on Functional and Qualification tests for Prefilled Syringes

    PFS is one of the key way of packaging many injectibles and vaccines. Normally high value drugs are packed into PFS and PFS could be either glass or plastics. The quality testing and functional requirements are the key criteria to accept the PFS. This is the topic not much talked about but very closely followed by various pharmaceutical companies. Keeping in mind its importance, we have designed a one hous technical webinar around this topic in our upcoming webinar on Functional and Qualification tests for Prefilled Syringes and will be covering mainly the following points like:

    What is Prefilled Syringe

    • Benefits of prefilled syringe

    • Types of pre filled syringe

    • Qualification and functional testing of PFS

    o PFS development and licensing o Human factors

    o Extractable and Leachable

    o Plunger stopper suitability

    o Container closure integrity

  • Tamper evident packaging

    Tamper Evident Packaging (TEP) is a broad category of packaging practices and technology that alerts the consumer of foul play or damage to the product during the B2C route. This is usually useful for international shipments or high-value local shipments that are delivered to the consumer through a third party. As opposed to Tamper Resistant Packaging, which is designed to be very hard to open, Tamper Evident Packaging provides a visual indication of tampering.

  • Packaging Connections 2021: A New Start

    We had two sessions of this webinar on the services of Packaging Connections 2021 on 12th January 2021. We had a good number of registrations from across the globe and understood that more and more people are looking for services supported remotely. It has been a good way to share the information without traveling and we could utilize our time better. Of course, face to face meeting has its own charm but I think digital is the next best way and in some cases even better. This can certainly help to reduce traveling and so the carbon footprint and then we can travel once in a while.
