Paper Chase

If you were to compare the 21st century pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector with how it started life, you would barely recognise it as the same industry. Its roots go back to when apothecaries and pharmacies offered traditional – but often hit-and-miss – treatments based on old wives’ tales and word of mouth. Today, it is built on a variety of scientific expertise and innovative technologies that are changing the way in which medicines are manufactured. However, despite these advances, many companies are still reliant on processes that are supported by paper documentation and printed forms.

Information scientists have discussed and envisioned the concept of a paperless society – a world in which paper communications and documents are replaced by electronic storage – since the late 1970s, but it is only in recent years that this has become a standard business objective. In the past decade, organisations from almost every industry have committed to becoming ‘greener’, often starting by reducing or eliminating paper-based processes in favour of a digital approach.

Gerresheimer introduces metal-free syringe

Düsseldorf/Bünde/Frankfurt, October 24, 2017. Biotechnologically manufactured active ingredients demonstrate a series of special features. Some are highly viscous and in individual cases, tend to interact with silicone oil or, for example, tungsten residue from syringe production. Gerresheimer therefore offers integrated thin-walled cannulas for the improved emptying capability of the syringe for these applications. The special silicone oil treatment for the reduction of free silicone oil (baked-on) and the “metal-free” production without a tungsten pin create a perfect primary packaging material for these sophisticated medications.
