Almac adds simple solutions to bridge the gap between clinical and commercial packaging         

Addressing client demand to ease the transition between clinical and commercial launch for blister products, Almac a leading provider in clinical and commercial contract packaging to the global Pharmaceutical and Biotech industries has added new blistering technology at their US commercial packaging facility in Audubon, PA

The Klockner EAS blister line can produce a range of blister formats processing both thermoform and coldform materials.  This provides simple solutions for client packaging projects requiring low volume runs for evaluation of different packaging material combinations and cost effective stability packaging.

David Moore, Director of Operations at the Audubon facility explains "Almac are offering seamless services from clinical supply, packaging development / design and stability testing to final commercial pack from its two Pennsylvania sites. Clients can now easily transition from the clinical blister presentation though various development packs, with Almac providing all the associated stability services".

The addition of a further blister line complements the already impressive array of clinical and commercial packaging capabilities of blistering, bottling, walleting and vial /ampoule labelling available at Almac.
