Bag on Valve (BOV) products for the pharmaceutical and healthcare markets are often manufactured by contract manufacturing organisations (CMOs), such as Aurena. For sterile products, some CMOs of BOV can offer aseptic production while other products achieve sterility by use of terminal gamma irradiation. Other benefits include, decreased cost of development or increased marketing opportunities for the products. Whatever the reason, BOV contract manufacturing organizations are an efficient, environmentally friendly and cost effective solution to source new healthcare products.
As an alternative to contract manufacturing of customer specific products, Aurena Laboratories, offers already CE-marked medical device products, developed in-house, for companies to sell and distribute under their own brands. The brand name and artwork design of the new private label will be added to the technical file (dossier) of the registered product and become a part of the registered product.
The procedures will be different depending on the classification of the product. Depending on the type of contractual arrangement between the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and the brand owner (Own Brand Labeller) it can be either the OEM or the brand owner that is stated as the legal manufacturer. This can ensure total integrity of the brand, as the original production source is not disclosed on the packaging. (more…)
Apart from being one of the most interesting ways of packaging and dispensing pharma and medical device products, BOV is an innovative technology, lowering the environmental footprint during the packaging process and improving convenience through the application process.
The unique Bag-on-Valve system is developed to not only produce a superior spray dispensing system, but to reduce our ecological footprint through a sustainable packaging process. Bag-on-Valve accomplishes this through the reduction of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) compared with the traditional aerosols. VOC’s are organic chemicals with a high vapor pressure which contribute to air pollution outdoors and inside our homes. VOC’s are regulated by law, especially indoors, where concentrations are the highest.
The BOV system uses nitrogen or compressed air as propellant, leaving a smaller ecological footprint. The (more…)
