Enhancing Pharma Packaging Safety with Time Temperature Indicators


The Importance of Time Temperature Indicators in Pharma Packaging

The pharmaceutical packaging industry is constantly evolving, driven by innovation and the need to protect products throughout the supply chain. MM Packaging, a leading supplier of secondary packaging to the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors, is at the forefront of this transformation. Together with Advanced Materials Development (AMD), we are pioneering the next generation of Time Temperature Indicators (TTIs) for pharmaceutical packaging applications. These innovative technologies offer accurate and cost-effective solutions to ensure safety and security in the industry. 

Ensuring patient safety is paramount, especially when it comes to pharmaceutical products that require refrigerated transportation. Even brief exposure to temperatures outside the defined range can damage valuable inventories. Mechanical failures, human errors, and inconsistencies in the supply chain can all pose risks to both end-user health and supplier costs. 

By integrating TTIs into pharmaceutical packaging, suppliers can effortlessly capture and display the temperature history of their products. These smart labels enable quick identification of excessive temperature exposure and help companies assess potential irreparable damage. For instance, if a product must be stored within a specific temperature range, TTIs can detect any abnormalities, empowering companies to take immediate action. 

TTI Labels

Various TTI formats exist in the market, ranging from dye-based systems using filter paper to bacterial fluids that change color. However, AMD's technology stands out due to its high degree of customizability. Utilizing the 'nLight' photonic crystal platform, AMD's TTIs offer exceptional performance, tunability, and adaptability for specific applications. 

A major challenge faced by the pharmaceutical packaging industry is the cost of implementing security technologies like TTIs. While essential for patient safety, the expenses associated with these innovations can hinder widespread adoption. At MM Packaging and AMD, we are working on a solution that will change this paradigm. Our collaboration focuses on creating accessible packaging technology for designers in 2023, enhancing patient safety, and fostering agility in supply chains. We believe that packaging technology should be easy to implement to drive real change. 

As pioneers in smart packaging technology, MM Packaging is committed to breaking new ground through collaboration. We aim to support our pharmaceutical customers with cutting-edge packaging security solutions. Our dedication to innovation and partnership positions us as leaders in the industry, driving advancements that prioritize patient safety. 

Together, let's explore the future of pharmaceutical packaging and the exciting possibilities that Time Temperature Indicators bring to the table.
