  Light Transmission Study

The results of a recent independent spectral-transmission study were astounding.
Our UV resistant topical applicator showed minimal to no light transmission after simulating for life-like occurrences*. No UV-B, UV-A, or visible light was measured through the Wall of a TICKER dispenser that had a standard prescription label wrapped around it! Overall transmission of UV-A, UV-B, and visible light after a full blast of light-irradiation exposure was <4% through the wall of Ticker-37*.
*The Amber-Mocha TICKER was used for this study. 

Proper Drug Packaging

The accepted standard is the USP test for light transmission (USP <661>) to evaluate the light transmission properties of a container.

According to the FDA, “Every proposed packaging system should be shown to be suitable for its intended use: it should adequately protect the dosage form; it should be compatible with the dosage form; and it should be composed of materials that are considered safe for use with the dosage form and route of administration.”
