Prefillable Vials for Dual Sourcing

Trends toward sophisticated, innovative medications and increasingly individualised medicine are increasing the quality demands on the primary packaging being used and are also creating a new division of labour between the pharmaceutical industry and packaging manufacturers. Quality-optimised ready-to-fill products enable the pharmaceutical industry to focus on its core
areas of expertise and free up capacity by eliminating the washing and sterilisation of packaging. Maximilian Vogl of Gerresheimer explores how prefillable vials enable companies to comply with the relevant ISO standards and pharmacopoeias, whilst also making it possible to process a large number of primary packaging types with minimal conversion required.
