Gerresheimer to unveil innovative vials made from glass and plastic at the PDA in Orlando

, Gerresheimer

Gerresheimer’s booth at the PDA Annual Meeting – to be held at the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort in Orlando from March 19 to 21 – is to focus on innovative glass and plastic vials for parenteral drugs that place high demands on the barrier properties and, by extension, the safety of their primary packaging.Gerresheimer has invested many years in developing and producing its plastic MultiShell vials and glass Gx Elite vials in order to offer its customers primary packaging solutions that are ideal for sensitive active substances.“It is absolutely crucial for drugs to be packaged properly in order to ensure drug stability,” says Edward Troy, Vice President Sales & Marketing and product expert for glass. “The question of whether to use glass or plastic vials depends on the application. We aim to work with our customers to find the best possible solution for their parenteral drugs.”

Gx Elite glass vials – glass of the very highest quality Gx Elite vials’ quality and performance is a result of proprietary techniques employed in the manufacturing process. As a result of these proprietary techniques, the Gx Elite vials have a significant improvement in glass strength and reduced cosmetic defects. A vial which resists delamination protecting the valuable drug product.
MultiShell – plastic of the very highest quality “The kind of powerful active ingredients that are being developed nowadays need shatter-resistant packaging and improved barrier protection,” says Franck Langet, explaining the properties of the Gx MultiShell vial. With its innovative multilayer structure made from COP and PA, this transparent vial is a unique packaging solution that meets all these requirements. Gerresheimer offers vials holding 2, 5, 10, 15, 50, and 100 ml, which are also available as ready-to-use versions including validated gamma sterilization. Gerresheimer supplies both COP multilayer and monolayer containers.
