Neopac Wins Tube Council Award for High-Barrier, Easy-Application Solution for Veterinary Products
Hoffmann Neopac, a global provider of high-quality packaging for a broad array of industries and applications, won gold in the “Best Pharmaceutical Tube” category in the annual Tube Council Awards.
The winning entry was a convenient, high-barrier single-use tube with a simple, no-mess applicator developed for Aurora Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a U.S.-based manufacturer and distributer of animal health medicines. Aurora chose Neopac as packaging provider for its prescription Revolt™ topical antiparasitic solution.
The winning package comprised a customized version of Neopac’s 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 treatment area.
The Twist’n’use tube reportedly 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 could enjoy a longer shelf life compared to those stored in conventional polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP) packaging.
This year’s Tube Council Awards saw more than 70 entries submitted for consideration across various categories. Entries were evaluated by a panel of judges composed of representatives from major consumer products companies and industry professionals.
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 percent API are available in .25-milliter, .75-milliter and 1-milliter tubes, while 12 percent API is available in .5-milliter, 1-milliter, 2-milliter or 3-milliter tubes. Neopac’s Twist’n’use™ tubes can hold volumes up to 10-milliters.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the Tube Council for this solution, which combines a variety of attractive features including premium barrier protection, small-dose delivery precision and hassle-free application,” said Martina Christiansen, head of sales, Neopac.
