New Tablet Container: Modern, Child-resistant and Easy To Use
Product News Oct 08, 2019
At CPhI Worldwide, Sanner GmbH will present its new child-resistant tablet container CR TabTec for the first time.
The CR TabTec tablet container has a new opening mechanism that protects children from accidentally taking painkillers, antidepressants or medical cannabis. "The patented Press & Flip closure is designed to prevent children from opening the container. However, it is still easy to handle for adults, who simply need to press and lift the cap simultaneously," explains Ursula Hahn, Head of Product Management at Sanner.
In July 2019, an independent market research institute commissioned by Sanner conducted a consumer test with 120 participants, who tested the CR TabTec for optical and haptic properties as well as everyday handling. They noted simple and hygienic removal of individual tablets thanks to an integrated pouring assistance. Moreover, almost all participants confirmed that the container can be resealed easily and intuitively thanks to the attached closure. With its slim shape, the container fits in any trouser pocket and remains securely closed on the go.
The new CR TabTec also offers pharmaceutical manufacturers an economic alternative to conventional tablet packaging. "The desiccant integrated into the bottom of the container shortens the filling process for moisture-sensitive products, as there is no need to add capsules and sachets," explains Ursula Hahn. "All necessary information can be printed on the label. The latter can be applied in various ways and equipped with an optional tamper-proof protection.
