Application of desiccants in shipping of drugs

ThoMar OHG supplies one of the world's largest pharmaceutical manufacturers with 1 gram desiccant pouches, which together with the blister pack are mechanically enclosed with the tablet carton box. During the stages of developping the customized product, the client and our consultants defined a variety of qualitative and quantitative specifications, for example:


  • Grain size of the silica gel
  • Material of the pouch
  • Size of the pouch
  • Profile height
  • Moisture content
  • Absorption capacity
  • Form of the processing unit
  • Punch holes
  • Adhesive spots

This approach guarantees that the product can be processed unobstructedly in the existing processing lines of our customer.

Application of desiccants in laboratories

Another healthcare corporation active on an international level uses desiccant bags by ThoMar with the instrument-based analysis of samples in the area of molecular diagnostics.


The desiccant bags made from dust-proof Tyvek with a seam on the back are filled with silica gel. Then 500 of the bags are wound on a spool in a continuous loop. Each desiccant bag contains at least 5 grams of silica gel with the predefined granulation. Also the dimensions, the external and internal diameter as well as the width of the spool are made to measure. Thus, our product fits in smoothly with the automated further processing at our customers production plant.
