The Next Generation Vials from SCHOTT: Perfection made for people
SCHOTT is presenting a new concept for pharmaceutical vials at this year’s CPhI Worldwide trade show. The 'Next Gen Vials' combine a number of features leading to unmatched drug stability even for so-called low-fill applications and efficient and cost-competitive fill & finish. The superior chemical resistance and extractables and leachables (E&L) profile make the vials highly suitable for sensitive biotech drugs, high potent drugs or vaccines. The vials are made of an improved Type I FIOLAX® borosilicate glass and include the company's validated delamination controlled production process, both ensuring a particularly improved resistance of the inner surface. Pharma companies can replace conventional tubular type-I glass vials for already marketed drugs with the next generation of vials without costly re-registration. The complete product offering will be based on a modular approach depending on the customer’s needs. The new vials reflecting the first features for a perfect fit for use are now ready for order from the company's US and German facilities. Pharma manufacturers can learn more about SCHOTT's latest innovation at CPhI booth 4B10 (Oct. 9-11, 2018, Madrid, Spain). More
