Multisorb has launched the PolySorb desiccant card, a low-profile desiccant for managing moisture in a range of products, including packaging of in-vitro diagnostic device kits, transdermal pharmaceutical delivery systems and foil pouches.

With an ultra-thin and low-profile design, PolySorb desiccant cards fit easily into any packaging, providing an ideal solution for low-level, humidity-related stability issues when packaging lacks available space for a traditional desiccant packet.

Healthcare Packaging vice-president Adrian Possumato said: "With the growing use of low-profile packaging presentations, pharmaceutical and in-vitro diagnostic product manufacturers are increasingly being challenged to control moisture in packaging where space is limited.

"As a company committed to innovation in the healthcare products industry, Multisorb has developed PolySorb desiccant cards as a solution to manage relative humidity in a low-profile format with the ability for further customisation to meet specific product requirements."

With options for size and shape, PolySorb cards offer flexibility and ease of use. The product is dust-free and can be easily dispensed on automated packaging lines using standard friction feeders.

Available in custom sizes and shapes, the cards can be produced to meet specific user requirements and are fully supported by a Type III drug master file. Stock sizes include 0.5g and 1g equivalent cards.
