Cryopak to address this year’s Healthpack Conference in New Mexico

Albuquerque, New Mexico: Cryopak, which specialises in temperature controlled package design and manufacturing, will be represented at this year’s Healthpack Conference with a presentation by technical services manager Anthony Alleva.

This presentation is called “Packaging challenges for drug/device combo products in the cold chain distribution system”.

“Drug/device combination products are becoming a significant portion of the product mix that packaging engineers have to deal with,” Alleva said. “One of the major challenges is dealing with the temperature fragility attributes that many of these products have.”

Alleva’s presentation will included a brief overview of thermal dynamics and the temperature control terminology commonly used within the industry. He will also address how to design a temperature-controlled package.

“The main thing to be aware of when it comes to drug/device combination products is to accurately identify what parts of package and product are actually temp sensitive and focus on those parts.

“It is best if you can design the package to separate out the temperature sensitive portions of the package from the non temperature sensitive products,” Alleva said.

Alleva will close out his presentation with common trends and issues that Cryopak has experienced such as the increase in controlled room temperature (CRT) packaging products.
