Ideal for small batches
Deblister bulk-supplied blisters for dispensing drugs into monitored dosage systems (MDS) tailored for individual patients in hospitals, nursing homes or other managed care facilities. Perfect for assisting with refilling cartridges in automated dispensing systems.
Clinical trials in laboratories
Deblister valuable clinical trial drugs from unused packs.
Quality control testing
Testing packaging material characteristics
Pharmaceutical production and packaging facilities
Empty finished blisters which have been rejected from the packaging line because of empty pockets, poor seals, incorrect batch coding etc. The good product can then be re-packaged to increase yield and reduce wastage costs.
Pharmaceutical distribution & inventory management
The same drugs are often supplied to different countries in blisters of different formats with the foil printed in local languages. Manage fluctuating market demands by deblistering surplus stocks of finished blister packs and re-packaging the contents in formats to suit the needs of other markets.
Press-Out Semi-Automatic is perfect for operations which need flexibility for lots of different blister push-through formats.
The patented mechanism is adjustable for many different push-though blister formats.
There is no need to purchase a different set of change parts for every different blister pack.
Prevent product damage
The patented roller and guide system gently eases product out of the pocket so that minimal pressure is exerted on the tablets.
The neoprene rollers come in different grades of hardness so that softer guide rollers can be used for more fragile products.
Prevent foil contamination
Foil remains attached to the waste blister pack during emptying
Waste blisters and recovered product are collected separately
No more painful fingers or RSI
Operators who deblister manually often suffer blisters on their fingers, Repetitive Strain Injury or Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. Using a machine to deblister:
Improves Health & Safety by protecting staff from injury
Improves morale because staff no longer need to do such a mundane job by hand.
Portable deblistering wherever you need it!
This machine is light enough to be lifted and moved from bench to bench.
Does not need to be connected to an air supply.
