Packets are ideal for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products that are susceptible to either chemical or physical degradation due to moisture. Silica gel (silicone dioxide) and molecular sieve (zeolite) are offered depending on the moisture adsorption attributes required for any given application. Activated carbon is used either independently or in combination with silica gel to provide odor adsorption properties.
Desiccant packets are often widely used for diagnostic and medical device applications to protect reagents, rapid tests, urinalysis strips, ELISA kits and a variety of in vitro and clinical diagnostic devices.
Airnov offers desiccant packets that are fully compliant with US FDA and EU regulations for use in pharmacuetical applications and that comply with US Pharmaceopia USP <670> standards for pharmaceutical desiccants.
