The In's and Out's of Pharmacy Vials
To stop a curious child from investigating a potentially dangerous object can be difficult. For this reason, it is important to implement safety measures into the design and manufacturing. We are proud to acknowledge that the amber pharmacy vials follow the strictest regulations for child safety, namely, the 16 CFR 1700 - Poison prevention packaging act.
This law is to prevent children under the age of five from opening them and gaining access to the harmful substances inside. Different design guidelines are for many types of packaging. Our amber vials strictly adhere to this regulation, so they are significantly difficult to open for a five-year-old or younger.
Don't Worry About the Moisture Getting Inside
One of the most important aspects of pharmaceutical packaging is low moisture permeation. It is a well-known fact in the pharmaceutical and medical circles that exposure to moisture degrades the quality of a drug. To overcome the moisture problem, all of our pharmaceutical vials are subject to standardized USP 671 permeation performance testing. This way we can ensure that our clients never have to worry with moisture damaging their medication.
Pill Bottles High-Quality Standards Are A Must
All our pharmacy bottles are constructed of high-quality polyethylene, and all have passed the USP 661 testing guidelines. This refers to a standardized battery of tests that scrutinize multiple internal reflectance, thermal analysis, heavy metal reactivity and nonvolatile residue. Such tests are highly advanced technological methods like infrared spectrometry or differential scanning calorimetry. You can be confident when using Thornton's products that you are getting the best product and the best price.
