Application

Pharmacy dispensing

Deblister bulk-supplied blisters for dispensing drugs into monitored dosage systems (MDS) tailored for individual patients in hospitals, nursing homes or other managed care facilities. Perfect for assisting with refilling cartridges in automated dispensing systems.

Clinical trials in laboratories

Deblister valuable clinical trial drugs from unused packs. Also, competitive products need to be deblistered and repacked for use in double blinded clinical trial studies.

Quality control testing

Testing packaging material characteristics.

Pharmaceutical production and packaging facilities

Empty finished blisters which have been rejected from the packaging line because of empty pockets, poor seals, incorrect batch coding etc. The good product can then be re-packaged to increase yield and reduce wastage costs. Manage fluctuating market demands by deblistering surplus stocks of finished blister packs and re-packaging the contents in formats to suit the needs of other markets.

Pharmaceutical distribution & inventory management

The same drugs are often supplied to different countries in blisters of different formats with the foil printed in local languages.

For waste disposal

When the product reaches the end of its shelf life it needs to be destroyed.  For reject blisters containing toxic product, there is often an expensive disposal process if the product is not separated from its packaging.
