Burgopak Awarded The Most Innovative Child Resistant Pack Design at Pharmapack Paris 2012
Burgopak Healthcare & Technology has won the award for the ‘Most Innovative Child Resistant Packaging Design’ at Pharmapack Paris. The awards ceremony was held during the Pharmapack Paris 2012 exhibition on 16th February 2012.
Pharmapack is an international exhibition bringing together over 260 worldwide suppliers of packaging and drug delivery solutions. Burgopak exhibited their range of pharmaceutical and healthcare solutions at this years show and were honoured to receive recognition from an independent jury for their Child Resistant Slider pack.
The Burgopak Child Resistant (CR) Slider pack incorporates the engaging operating system of the original Burgopak design, while also including senior friendly features. To open the Burgopak CR Slider pack the patient has to push two buttons, one on either side of the pack while simultaneously pulling the end tab. The pack opens to reveal the blister, held in a plastic tray on one side and the patient information in an easy to read booklet format on the other. Once the patient has accessed the medication they simply push the end tab back into the pack and it reengages the CR lock. As the pack itself is CR, there is no additional requirement for tougher CR blister foils, making the pack easier to use for both seniors and those with reduced dexterity. Calendar blister formats can also be used to further assist adherence.
The Burgopak CR Slider pack successfully achieved the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission’s F=1 for child resistance and senior friendly effectiveness. The pack encourages compliance by keeping the blister, patient information and outer carton connected at all times, it also keeps the pack compact and portable.
Commenting on the award, Tim Clarke, CEO of Burgopak, said: “Innovation is key to our success. Working very closely with our customers the Burgopak design team are constantly developing new pack formats. Gaining industry recognition by winning this award for the Burgopak CR Slider pack is a great achievement for the company”.
In May this year, Burgopak Healthcare & Technology will be exhibiting at the inaugural USA Pharmapack exhibition in Philadelphia.
