Description

PACKAGING SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF
PROVIDING AT LEAST ONE ARTICLE
Field of the Invention
The invention relates to a packaging system for retaining at least one article, in particular at least one wipe, and to a method of providing at least one article.
Background to the Invention
Wet wipes have many uses. For example, they are widely used to clean work areas in medical facilities. Wet wipes are also used, for example, in the treatment of wounds. It may be important that such wipes are sterile and effective against micro-organisms. It may also be desirable that persons using the wipes, such as nurses, can obtain a wipe quickly and simply.
Packages containing wipes are known. A problem with conventional packages of wipes is that the sterilising capacity of the sterilising agent on the wipes degrades, in part at least because the wipes are not sterile prior to impregnation with the sterilising agent. Also, after a package of wipes has been opened and the wipes are exposed to air, the sterilising agent oxidises.
Alcohols are not recommended for sterilizing medical and surgical materials principally because they lack sporicidal effectiveness. They also cannot penetrate protein-rich materials and quickly evaporate from the wipes.
It is an object of the present invention to address these drawbacks.
Summary of the Invention
According to a first aspect of the present invention, there is provided a packaging system for retaining at least one article, comprising a first sealed container containing a fluent substance, and an openable second container containing at least one article and the first container, wherein the first container is openable when the second container is closed so that the at least one article absorbs and/or adsorbs the substance.
Fluent substance can therefore be released for absorption and/or adsorption by the at least one article before use of the at least one article. Therefore, the material of the article will not degrade due to presence of the substance between manufacture of the packaging system and use of the packaging system. Also, effectiveness of the substance will not reduce due to contaminants on the at least one article between manufacture and absorption/adsorption. Since effectiveness of the substance will not degrade, less substance may be provided, resulting in less bulk and potentially lower costs.
Since the first container is in the second container, its breakage to release the substance may be done in a convenient and tidy way. The size of the first container and the volume of substance can be selected for the packaging system dependent on requirements. For example, where the substance is a therapeutic and/or sterilising agent, and the at least one article is a number of wipes (e.g. 75), sufficient substance may be provided to wet this number of wipes.
According to a second aspect of the present invention, there is provided a method of providing an article having a fluent substance adsorbed thereon and/or absorbed therein, comprising: providing a first sealed container containing a fluent substance, and an openable second container containing at least one article and the first container; and opening the first container when the second container is closed so that the at least one article absorbs and/or adsorbs the substance.
According to a third aspect of the present invention, there is provided a packaging system for retaining at least one article, comprising a first compartment containing a fluent substance; a second compartment separated from the first compartment by a breakable portion and containing at least one article; and at least one rupturing element, wherein the packaging system is operable to break the breakable portion thereby to aflow adsorption and/or absorption of the substance by the at least one article.
According to a fourth aspect of the present invention, there is provided a method of providing at least one article having a fluent substance adsorbed andlor adsorbed therein, comprising: providing a packaging system having a first compartment containing a fluent substance, and a second compartment separated from the first compartment by a breakable portion, the second compartment containing at least one article; and operating the packaging system to cause a rupturing means to break the breakable portion thereby to allow adsorption and/or absorption of the substance by the at least one article.
According to a fifth aspect of the present invention, there is provided a packaging system for retaining at least one article, comprising at least one article, a first sealed container containing a therapeutic agent, and a second sealed container containing at least one dry wipe; wherein the first container includes an openable barrier and opening of the barrier allows adsorption and/or absorption of the therapeutic agent by the at least one wipe.
According to a sixth aspect of the present invention, there is provided a method of providing at least one wipe having a therapeutic agent absorbed therein or absorbed thereon, comprising the steps of: providing a first container having a breakable portion and containing the therapeutic agent, and a second container containing at least one dry wipe, wherein the first and second containers are separated by an openable barrier and opening of the barrier allows the therapeutic agent to be absorbed and/or adsorbed by the at least one article; and opening the barrier.
According to a seventh aspect of the present invention, there is provided a packaging system comprising: a first compartment containing a fluent substance; and a second compartment containing a plurality of articles and having an opening sealed by a openable closure, the first and second compartments being separated by an openabk barrier, wherein the barrier is openable to allow absorption andlor adsorption of the substance by the articles, and wherein the second compartment and the artides are arranged to enable removal of one article at a time through the opening.
According to an eighth aspect of the present invention, there is provided a method of providing a plurality of articles having a fluent substance adsorbed andlor adsorbed therein, comprising: opening a barrier separating a first compartment containing a fluent substance and a second compartment containing a plurality of articles; opening a closure to access the plurality of articles; taking an article; and subsequently taking another article.
Optional and/or preferred features of the method or packaging system of the first to eighth aspect are set out in the dependent claims.

Detailed Description of Embodiments
Like parts are denoted by like reference numerals throughout.
Certain terminology will be used in the following description for convenience and reference only, and is not limiting. For example, in embodiments, the packaging system may be designed to have a normal orientation in use such that articles may be taken from an opening located at the top of the packaging system. The word "top" should be understood accordingly. Similarly, the packaging system may be designed to rest on a sLibstantially horizontal surface. The term "base" should be understood as being the part of the packaging system which sits on the horizontal surface.
Embodiments of the invention relate to a package system from which one or more articles such as wipes can be taken. The packaging system includes at least the one or more articles and a container containing a fluent substance, for example a therapeutic, cleansing or cleaning agent or anti-microbial suitable for disinfecting.
The fluent substance is typically a liquid, but may be a powder, gel or have other form. The fluent substance may have thixotropic properties.
The container includes an openable barrier in the form of a breakable portion. The breakable portion can be broken to allow adsorption and/or absorption of the substance by the one or more articles. The one or more articles are thus disposed relative to the container so that, when the breakable portion is broken, the substance is absorbed and/or adsorbed by the at least one article.
A "wipe" is referred to herein, but it should be understood that the term encompasses a "swab".
Referring to Figures 1 and 2, a wipe dispenser 100 for storing wipes and from which wipes can be taken includes an outer container 102. The outer container has an opening (not shown) therein closed by a closure 104. The outer container 102 is sealed by the closure 104 until the closure 104 is first opened to prevent ingress of contaminants. The closure 104 is such as to allow re-sealing of the outer container 1 02 for example by means of low tack, reusable pressure sensitive adhesive on the closure 104.
Referring to Figure 3, the wipe dispenser 100 also includes a plurality of dry wipes 106 and an inner container 108, both contained within the outer container 102. The inner container 108 defines an inner compartment and an outer compartment is defined between the inner container 108 and outer container 102. The wipes 106 are located between the inner container 108 and the opening in the outer container 102 so that, when the closure 104 is removed, the wipes can be accessed. There may only be a single wipe, or there may be at least 5 wipes or at least 50, depending on intended use for the wipes. There are preferably fewer than 250, preferably still fewer than 100. For example, there may be 75 wipes.
The outer container 102 is substantially formed of a flexible material so that the inner container 108 can be broken when the outer container 102 is closed. By "flexible", it should be understood that the outer container 102 should be sufficiently flexible that it can be deformed so that inner container 108 can be broken in a flexing, folding, bending, snapping or shearing action, as described further below, without opening of the outer container 102. The material of the outer container 102 may also be substantially self-supporting and have resilience, so that the outer container 102 returns to an initial shape after being deformed during breakage of the inner container 108.
The outer container 102 is completely impermeable to micro-organisms (including spores and viruses) before first opening. Generally, the outer container is fornied from sheet material. The sheet material is sufficiently durable to maintain sterility of the package contents during normal handling and storage, and to permit opening of the inner container 102 when the outer container is closed. Typically the sheet material comprises at least one layer of thermoplastic film. The sheet material may be a laminated sheet formed of a plurality of layers. At least a portion of the sheet materia' may be transparent to allow inspection of the package contents. The sheet material may he multiple pieces of sheet material joined together, or a single piece of sheet material folded or curved. The piece or pieces of sheet material are joined along edges thereof by heat or impact adhesive to form seams. The sheet material may include a layer of plastics material. Suitable plastics materials include polyolefins, PVC, PVDC, or LDPE. The sheet material making up the outer container 102 may further comprise a metal layer, such as an aluminium layer. The outer container 102 may be in the form of a pouch or flow wrap, in which it consists substantially entirely of the flexible sheet material.
Alternatively, the oLiter container 102 can be formed of other materials having sufficient flexibility to allow rupturing of the inner container 108.
Methods of manufacture of containers from sheet material are known to persons skilled in the art. For example, the sheet material can be cut to size through the use of a suitable die. Pieces of sheet material can then be sealingy joining by a heat sealing operation.
Referring additionally to Figure 4, the inner container 108 is hermetically sealed and contains a fluent substance in the form of a liquid 110. For example, the fluent substance may be a solution including a hypoclorous acid composition. The inner container 108 includes a breakable portion in the form of a weak portion 112. The inner container 108 is substantially made of rigid material. The inner container 108 is elongate so that the inner container 108 can be broken open in a folding, flexing, snapping or shearing action at the weak portion 112. The weak portion 112 is located across the width of the inner container 108. The weak portion 112 is provided by a thinning of the material of the inner container 108, but it could be provided in alternative ways, for example by scoring. The inner container 108 may he made of a suitable polymer. The inner container 108 is manufactured in two parts, which are sealingly joined together with the liquid 110 inside.
A variant inner container 108a is shown in Figure 5. This inner container 108a comprises a body portion 09a and a cap I 09h. During manufacture, after the substance 110 has been put into the body portion I 09a, the cap 1 09b is used to seal the body portion I 09a.
The inner containers 108, 108a may be manufactured from high-density poly-ethylene. Advantageously, this material is easily recycleable.
In use, when a person wishes to take a first wipe from the wipe dispenser 100, the wipe dispenser 100 is folded, flexed, snapped or sheared such that the inner container 108 breaks at its weakened portion 112. The liquid 110 is then absorbed and/or adsorbed by the wipes 106. The wipe dispenser 100 is preferably inverted such that the inner container 108 is above the wipes or the wipe dispenser shaken for good adsorptionlabsorption of the liquid by the wipes. The closure 104 is then opened and the wipe 106 nearest the opening removed for use. The next closest wipe to the opening can thereafter be taken and so on. The outer container 102 is typically resealed using the closure 104 and then reopened later when a further wipe is required. Sealing of the outer container 104 between taking of wipes to prevent undue exposure of the interior of the outer container 102 to contaminants is desirable.
It will be appreciated that it is not essential for the inner container 108 to be inside the outer container 102. In other embodiments, the packaging system may be in the form of a wipe dispenser comprising first and second containers defining respectively isolated compartments and having a rupturable/breakable barrier between them. Examples of this are now described with reference to Figures 6 to 12.
Referring first to Figure 6, the wipe dispenser 200 comprises a first container 202 defining a first compartment and containing a plurality of dry wipes and a second container 204 defining a second compartment and containing the fluent substance.
The second container 204 includes a rupturable barrier preventing egress of the fluent substance and the wipe dispenser 200 includes a rupturing mechanism operable to rupture the barrier so that the fluent substance can be absorbed/adsorbed by the wipes.
Referring also to Figure 7, the second container 204 is formed of a cylinder 208 having a base at one end thereof closing the cylinder 208 at that end. In the vicinity of the other end thereof, the second container includes a threaded portion 212 extending circumferentially around the interior of the second container 204 for engagement with a corresponding threaded portion on the first container 202.
The fluent substance is sealed within the second container 204 by the rupturable barrier, which is in the form of an impermeable, rupturable sheet 214 sealingly joined circumferentially around the internal surface of the cylinder 208. The second container 204 also includes a tab 215, whose purpose will be described below.
Referring to Figures 8 and 9, the first container 202 has at one end thereof an opening (not shown) sealed by a closure (not shown). The closure is removable so that wipes can be taken through the opening. The opening can preferably be resealed using the closure after opening. The first container 202 includes at the other end thereof rupturing elements in the form of teeth 216 suitable for rupturing the sheet 214 and supports 218 to which the teeth 216 are joined. The supports 218 are joined to the interior of the cylindrical body and the teeth 216 extend from the supports 218 in an orientation such that rupturing of the sheet 214 will occur when the packaging system is operated in the manner described below. In this particular example, the supports 218 are in the form of diametrically arranged spokes, but it will be appreciated that the supports can take other forms, provided that they allow passage of the fluent substance from the second container 204 to the first container 202.
The first container 202 includes a generally cylindrical body portion and an external threaded portion 213 on the body portion arranged to engage the threaded portion of the second container 204. The threaded portions of the first and second containers 202, 204 engage so as to form an interior chamber defined by the interior walls of the first and second containers 202, 204 and separated into the first and second compartments by the barrier.
Although not shown, the first container 202 contains wipes located between the supports 218 and the opening. The wipes are arranged so that they can be taken one at a time through the opening.
The first container 202 has a recess 220 in the cylindrical body portion in which the tab 215 is initially engaged. When the tab 215 is engaged in the recess 220, the threaded portions of the first and second containers 202, 204 are engaged together such that the first and second containers 202, 204 are attached and such that the teeth 216 are spaced from the rupturable sheet 214. Preferably, when the threaded portions are so engaged, the interior chamber is sealed from the external environment. After the tab 215 is removed from the recess 220, the threaded portions can be thither engaged, such that the teeth 216 pierce the rupturable sheet.
Figure 10 shows a portion of the wipe dispenser 200 with the second container 204 shown as transparent so that the interior of the packaging system 200 can be seen for illListration purposes.
In use, first the tab 215 is broken away. The first and second containers 202, 204 are then respectively twisted so that the respective threaded portions further engage. This further engagement moves together the nipturable sheet 214 and the teeth 216 so that the teeth 216 rupture the sheet 214. The fluent substance is then absorbed and/or adsorbed by the wipes and the wipe dispenser 200 is preferably shaken or inverted to assist this. The closure of the first container 202 is then removed so that wipes can he taken through the opening. The opening can be resealed using the closure.
The wipe dispenser 200A of Figure 11 is a variant of that of Figures 6 to 9. The closure is indicated at 222. A recess 224 is provided in a top of the first container 202a to facilitate lifting of the closure. The first container 202a is larger than the second container 204h in comparison to the example of Figures 6 to 9. Generally, the relative sizes of the containers can be selected in dependence on the absorption and absorption characteristics of the wipes and the properties of the fluent substance. The tab 215a is in the form of a pull-away rubber piece.
Referring to Figures 13 and 14, in another embodiment a packaging system is in the fonTi of a package 300. The package 300 includes a container 302 containing a fluent sLibstance (not shown) and a dry wipe 304 affixed to the outside of the container 302.
The container 302 is formed of a tray 306 of semi-rigid material having an outwardly extending lip 308. The tray 306 is closed by a semi-rigid or flexible sheet of material 310 heat seated to the lip 308. The sheet 310 has a breakable portion formed by a line of weakness (not shown) extending at least partially across the width of the sheet 310. The wipe 304 is affixed to the sheet 310 over the line of weakness using an adhesive.
