Introducing Amcor MediCan, safe for healthcare products!
Amcor Flexibles, the leading provider of packaging solutions for the healthcare industry, and the Swiss machine manufacturer Rychiger have launched Amcor MediCan which will be on show at the Achema Trade Fair in Frankfurt am Main (Germany) from June 18-22, 2012.
Amcor MediCan has been designed to meet the most stringent packaging requirements of the pharmaceutical and medical industry. This product combines the strong barrier of aluminum against light, moisture and oxygen with the high stability of containers, providing a high degree of protection to healthcare products and thus significantly extending their shelf life. It is also particularly suitable for inhalers and diagnostic devices which usually require a total protection from moisture.
Amcor Medican has been tailored to meet the growing demand for senior-friendly packaging, and the high integrity sealing technology used also allows for easy opening. The product can be produced in a wide range of shapes and designs, providing the best fit to the product specific format. In addition, Amcor MediCan benefits from the wide range of technologies developed by Amcor Flexibles for the pharmaceutical market: it is produced under GMP conditions and can incorporate N’CRYPT®, Amcor’s proprietary portfolio of anti-counterfeit features, as well as include integrated desiccant in its lid.
Bertrand Jannon, Marketing and Business Development Manager Amcor Flexibles Europe & Americas says: “We have noticed a strong push for high barrier packaging solutions combined with a good mechanical protection in the inhaler and diagnostic markets. Together with leading pharmaceutical companies, we have further developed our proven aluminum container technology to make it fit for the high requirements of this industry. Our innovative partnership with Rychiger enables us to offer a complete solution and the support of two leading companies on the pharmaceutical market.”
