Packaging vendors debut a flurry of patents for containers and materials

Packaging vendors debut a flurry of patents for containers and materials
Becton Dickinson's optimized tray for vials.

Optimized vial trays, a new kind of blister that’s relockable, an easier-tear film, a dosing tap, an optimized MAP package and an improved retail-ready case appear in this 6-item Slideshow Gallery that provides a snapshot look at a late wintertime flurry of packaging patents.

The first part of 2015 has proven a boom time for the publication of patents for packaging. Perhaps that’s much like the rest of the year. In any event, we present in alpha order by vendor an innovative mix of patent-pending packaging materials and containers that may soon see the light of day in the market if they have not done so already.
