AGK Ukraine is a Ukrainian developer of plastic packaging products for the pharmaceutical industry. The company has developed a new packaging reducing the need for cold chain in drug logistics and administering painkillers.
It allows the storage and transportation of painkillers and some other drugs without refrigeration. Really helpful on its way to a drugstore or a customer’s home.
The package is intended for the substances that can be stored for a long time in a dry undiluted condition but have a short term of use after mixing with the solvent. The innovative packaging from AGK allows nasal painkillers administration, mixing the dry active substance with the solvent with the easy twist of the bottle. Patients can do it themselves right before drug delivery. Since no refrigeration is required for the delivery and storage, this packaging is reducing the carbon footprint of the pharmaceutical industry.
The Climate Innovation Voucher allowed AGK Ukraine to hire a leading technology consultant in the field, perform testing of the new packaging and meet the requirements of the GMP (good manufacturing practice) standard.
