Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Packing Sourcer

Made of Glass

PMPS: At Gerresheimer, you offer different types of glass. Do any prove more popular for particular products and, if so, why?

Jens Heymann: Our customers require the highest quality glass primary packaging for their pharmaceuticals. Many products are packaged in glass for example, those that use glass vials include vaccines, analgesics, sedatives and insulin preparations for injection. Glass is a highly favoured material, because it is hard, transparent, has excellent barrier properties and is inert, so it does not interact with the active ingredients. Hydrolysis resistant type 1 borosilicate glass is used as packaging for dissolved and lyophilised preparations, for instance.

Our entire range of pharmaceutical packaging is available in flint or amber glass, and we also make moulded high-quality special primary packaging such as vials and cartridges from borosilicate glass tubing.
