PharmaKeep® is an innovative and unique line of polymer-based oxygen absorbers that are « humidity neutral». Unlike traditional iron-based oxygen scavengers, PharmaKeep® requires no moisture to react.
Available as canisters, packets and bags, PharmaKeep® oxygen absorbers protect pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and diagnostic products from oxygen degradation and oxidative reactions, thus extending the shelf life. Because they do not require humidity to function, PharmaKeep® can be used in conjunction with desiccants.
Oxygen scavengers are often used in conjunction with high barrier containers. Airnov offers Oxy-Guard® Barrier Bottles. For more information visit our Oxy-Guard® Barrier Bottles page.

- Humidity neutral: PharmaKeep® Is humidity neutral, absorbing oxygen at either low or high relative humidity levels, and can be used in conjunction with a desiccant. Compared to iron-based oxygen scavengers, PharmaKeep® will not release moisture to the drug product.
- High speed insertion: Due to their rigidity, PharmaKeep® capsules can be inserted at high rates of speed using standard desiccant canister insertion equipment. Packets can also be automated.
- Full protection: PharmaKeep® can be paired with Airnov’s Oxy-Guard® oxygen barrier bottles for an ideal package solution
- Degradation avoidance: With PharmaKeep®, the chemical and physical degradation of drug products can be mitigated, sometimes visible in extreme color change
