Abstract

Tablet and gel cap blister packages must be perfectly sealed for achieving targeted product shelf life and for consumer safety. Simultaneously, the products must be easily removed from the blister packs for consumer convenience and product satisfaction. Balancing those contradictory objectives is not an easy task for pharmaceutical packaging professionals. We tested the ease to push tablets and liquid gel caps through their foil backing with a TA-XTPlus Texture Analyzer.
