Airnov Healthcare Packaging is introducing its new brand, Oxynov. Applicable for high protective barrier bottles, Oxynov offers protection for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and probiotic products. The Oxynov barrier bottles utilize extrusion-blow-molding (EBM) technology creating a 6-layer bottle with ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH), which offers the barrier to oxygen and moisture. The Oxynov bottles are rigid containers to be used on automated filling lines for a fast, reliable output and do not shrink when bottles are used in conjunction with oxygen absorbers.
The Oxynov bottle is the latest brand in Airnov’s oxygen protective solutions, which when combined with oxygen absorbers, offers the ideal product to avoid the degradation of oxygen-sensitive products such as drugs, proteins, or probiotics. Airnov produces Oxynov bottles in a range of sizes from 40 cubic centimeters to 400 cubic centimeters. “After introducing our new company name in February this year, we are continuing to update and evolve some Airnov category products to grow our core business of healthcare packaging solutions. It’s been a wonderful journey along this process to create Oxynov,” says Stephane Rault, global product line manager. “Customers will now recognize our oxygen protective solutions through our new Oxynov brand, dedicated to oxygen protective solutions.”
Oxynov not only protects against oxygen, but it also guarantees protection from moisture and UV. The Oxynov bottles are delivered to customers in tight aluminum bags resulting in a 2-year shelf-life, are compliant with SP-400 regulation, and may be used with standard screw cap and child-resistant closures as well as US FDA, EU regulations, and USP 38/NF 33 supplement 1<671>. Regulatory statements are available upon request and are registered in a Drug Master File.
