EZ Blister+ is a 21 CFR part 11 compliant blister pack machine for pharmaceutical companies that require low volumes

The Sepha EZ Blister+ is a small blister pack machine, ideal for packaging tablets, capsules, ampoules, and other products.

EZ Blister+

Increasing market demand for packaging of high-value product in low-volumes has driven a need for equipment capable of producing blister packs whilst enabling you to be 21 CFR Part 11 compliant. The EZ Blister+ is a small blister pack machine that meets the need for electronic data storage capabilities and digital connectivity. It provides the same proven blister packaging performance, but with added software capabilities that enable the creation of electronic signatures, batch reports, audit trails and other electronic documentation.

The Sepha EZ Blister+ offers a 3-in-1 manufacturing process for low volume blister packaging including forming, sealing and perforating/cutting.

  1. Pre-heating & Thermoforming /  Coldforming
    Pre-cut sheets are pre-heated to enable thermoforming. Aluminium sheets can be coldformed directly.
  2. Filling & Sealing
    The formed trays are sealed with pre-cut pieces of the preferred lidding material using knurled or flat heat-sealing
    plates. Product traceability can be achieved by choosing the option of code embossing the lidding material.
  3. Perforating & Cutting
    The sealed trays are perforated if required and cut using a precision die cutter.

The table top blister packaging machine can help departments involved with clinical trials, stability studies, specialist drugs or packaging development as it’s designed to create small batches. The Sepha EZ Blister+ eliminates the need to interrupt busy schedules of Production departments, saving time and money. It also gives more freedom to plan and budget smaller projects as and when required.
