Cold Chain Integrity: nexAir’s Gases in Pharmaceutical and Food Packaging


Cold Chain Integrity: nexAir’s Gases in Pharmaceutical and Food Packaging


In the pharmaceutical and food industries, maintaining the integrity of the cold chain is paramount. Whether it’s life-saving medicines or fresh produce, the safe storage and transportation of temperature-sensitive goods hinge on a delicate balance of temperature control and protection from external factors.

The Role of Gases in Cold Chain Preservation

Pharmaceutical Protection

Within the pharmaceutical sector, certain medications and vaccines are highly sensitive to temperature fluctuations. Exposure to heat can compromise their efficacy and safety. nexAir’s gases, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2), play a vital role in maintaining the cold chain. CO2 is employed throughout various stages, from initial pharmaceutical manufacturing to distribution and storage. In pharmaceutical packaging, CO2 is a blanketing gas, displacing oxygen to prevent oxidation and degradation of sensitive compounds.

Freshness in Food

The food industry places a premium on preserving freshness. nexAir’s gases, including nitrogen and carbon dioxide, are indispensable in food packaging. Nitrogen is often used to create modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), reducing oxygen levels within sealed packages to extend the shelf life of perishable items. On the other hand, carbon dioxide finds application in carbonated beverages and as an inert gas for preserving packaged food quality.
