Application

Automated pharmacy dispensing

Deblister tablets or capsules from bulk-supplied blisters and refill cartridges from 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.
