CR TabTec: Modern, Child-resistant and Easy to Use

Sanner presents market innovation and solution portfolio at CPhI

Bensheim/Frankfurt (Germany), October 7, 2019 – At CPhI worldwide, Sanner GmbH will present its new child-resistant tablet container CR TabTec for the first time. It obtained excellent ratings in a consumer test regarding its functional characteristics and design. Visitors to the joint booth "Excellence in Pharma" (booth 111G10, hall 11) will furthermore see Sanner's comprehensive range of solutions for pharmaceuticals, medical technology, diagnostics and healthcare products.

Sanner will present a market innovation at CPhI worldwide: the CR TabTec tablet container has a new opening mechanism that protects children from accidentally taking painkillers, antidepressants or medical cannabis. "The patented Press & Flip closure is designed to prevent children from opening the container. However, it is still easy to handle for adults, who simply need to press and lift the cap simultaneously," explains Ursula Hahn, Head of Product Management at Sanner.

Consumer test confirms easy handling

In July 2019, an independent market research institute commissioned by Sanner conducted a consumer test with 120 participants, who tested the CR TabTec for optical and haptic properties as well as everyday handling. They were particularly impressed by the simple and hygienic removal of individual tablets thanks to an integrated pouring assistance. Moreover, almost all participants confirmed that the container can be resealed easily and intuitively thanks to the attached closure. With its slim shape, the container fits in any trouser pocket and remains securely closed on the go. The innovative design with its distinct shape and design options makes the packaging solution stand out from many other products at point of sale.

The new CR TabTec also offers pharmaceutical manufacturers an economic alternative to conventional tablet packaging. "The desiccant integrated into the bottom of the container shortens the filling process for moisture-sensitive products, as there is no need to add capsules and sachets," explains Ursula Hahn. "All necessary information can be printed on the label. The latter can be applied in various ways and equipped with an optional tamper-proof protection. 

Extensive portfolio for pharma and medtech

In addition to the new tablet container, Sanner will showcase its entire solution portfolio for pharmaceutical products, dietary supplements, as well as diagnostic, analytical and medical devices. The AdPack® desiccant sachets made of Tyvek®, for example, offer an ideal combination of moisture protection, breathability and resistance. The AdCap® desiccant capsules ensure that moisture or odors are optimally adsorbed immediately after filling. Depending on requirements, they are available with silica gel, molecular sieve, activated carbon or mixtures.

Sanner will further provide information on customer-specific solutions such as syringe accessories, inhalers, transfer devices and components for medical technology and diagnostic products.
