The company is one of the world's leading manufacturers of pharmaceutical and medical blister films and foils, supplying a full range of thermoforming films, Alu-lid foils, and cold form foils. In doing so, Bilcare Research delivers effective, affordable solutions that enhance the speed and quality of drug discovery and help build and protect brands from counterfeiting. FACILITIES Bilcare Research employs more than 2,000 people and has a global footprint with modern manufacturing and R&D plants across the United States, Europe, India and Singapore. Its U.S. headquarters is located in Delaware City, DE, and offers 180,000 square feet of space, including the new BilcareOptima™ R&D lab, which specializes in discovering ideal packaging solutions through innovative formulation analysis techniques. PRODUCTS & SERVICES Bilcare Research's business areas – including Pharma- ceutical Packaging Innovations, and Bilcare Technologies – address the industry's five C's: counterfeiting, compliance, communication, convenience and cost. Offerings include: • Packaging film solutions including PVC Mono, PVC/ PVDC, PVC/Aclar ® , PVC/AquaBa ® and Cold Form Foil. • Lidding foil-standard push through aluminum foils, paperback child-resistant foils and eco-friendly lid foil Nova. • Anti-counterfeiting and branding solutions such as Bilcare Protect, a blister utilizing em- bedded images nearly impossible to duplicate. • BicareOptima, an enhanced formulation analysis determining optimal packaging solutions. RECENT DEVELOPMENTS Building on the company's expertise in drug stabilization, Bilcare's new FastPack™ service helps packaging engineers and formulators of global pharmaceutical companies overcome the time and resource crunch they face when attempting to achieve successful stability studies. The science behind FastPack™ was devised from sensitivity profiling conducted on hundreds of phar- maceutical formulations over the past 15 years. The result is a scientifically streamlined process: In only 15 business days, Fast- Pack™ identifies a product's two most optimal packaging materi- als in terms of cost and barrier protection. ECOmply™ is an eco-friendly blister blending standard PVC film with an additive that makes it biodegradable*, resulting in PVC-level functionality without PVC-level environ- mental footprint. ECOmply breaks down only under anaerobic conditions typically found in landfills, overcoming a hurdle in designing a cost-effective, ecofriendly blister package, as conventional biodegradable materials have problems withstanding mechanical, thermal and biological stress during blister forming and in-market lifecycle. *ECOmply film has been tested for biodegradability per ASTM D5511. Initial results have shown 18.7% biodegradation in 45 days.
