Neopac Develops High-Barrier, Easy-Application Tube Solution for Veterinary Drug from Aurora Pharmaceuticals

Hoffmann Neopac has developed a differentiating packaging solution for a topical antiparasitic solution produced by Aurora Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a US-based manufacturer and distributer of animal health medicines. Featuring the active ingredient selamectin, the recently released Revolt™ Topical Solution is now available via prescription in convenient, high-barrier single-use tubes with a simple, no-mess applicator.

For the project, Neopac produced its Twist’n’use™ tube, a small-volume single-dose solution that, once the cap is twisted, is irrevocably opened. In addition to tamper-evidence, the tube’s permanently affixed cap emphasizes consumer simplicity and offers accurate application of the enclosed product to the area of treatment.

For Aurora Pharmaceuticals, it was important that Revolt™ be packaged in a solution that optimized aesthetics without necessitating an external moisture barrier. Meeting this need, the Twist’n’use™ tube features Neopac’s Polyfoil® technology – a proprietary blend of materials providing advanced barrier properties for products requiring ample protection against moisture, oxygen and other potentially harmful substances. Products housed in Polyfoil® solutions can enjoy a longer shelf life compared to those stored in conventional polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP) packaging.

Revolt Topical Solution comes in a variety of sizes and strengths, coinciding with the size of the dog or cat receiving it. Versions with 6% API are available in .25ml, .75ml and 1ml tubes, while 12 percent API is available in .5ml, 1ml, 2ml or 3ml tubes. Neopac’s Twist’n’use tubes can hold volumes up to 10ml.
