Drug Master Files, or DMFs, are submissions to the Food and Drug Administration that provide confidential, detailed information about facilities, processes and other specifics used to manufacture, process, pack or store drugs intended for human use.
Plastics are widely used for medical and pharmaceutical applications. Having an up-to-date DMR is an indication of both credibility and reliability. Plastics Color Corporation offers a catalog of colors, additives and concentrates packaged with FDA-accepted DMFs.
Plastic containers used for pharmaceutical products, food packaging and many other consumer uses are prone to microbial contamination and biofilm formation. Microorganisms such as mold, mildew, algae and even yeast can impair the service life of untreated plastic containers. MicroBlok®, an additive produced by Plastics Color Corp., helps inhibit the advance of bacteria, fungi and other microbes on treated surfaces. This greatly reduces stains, odors and product deterioration that can occur in plastic containers.
The pharmaceutical industry is challenging and competitive and it pays to be aware of pharmaceutical packaging service trends at all times. With global sales passing the $1 trillion mark, product development and purity are more important than ever. Being first and being the best are crucial. Two important trends, lab services and clean compounding, offer innovative solutions to safeguarding the purity of the product and staying ahead of the competition.
