SCHOTT’S iQTM Platform

More than 600 production lines in 13 countries worldwide produce more than 10 billion syringes, vials, ampoules, cartridges, and special articles of tubing glass or polymer. SCHOTT has more than 130 years of outstanding materials and technology expertise.

iQ™: The Global RTU Standard

Ready-to-use (RTU) filling concepts enable pharma manufacturers to fill syringes, vials, or cartridges in a flexible manner. However, currently available solutions from packaging suppliers require drug manufacturers to fit the filling machines to the specific tub format. This means that the machine needs to be optimised each time to fit the individual products. It also means doing the same work multiple times. With its new iQ platform, SCHOTT addresses this particular issue by standardising ready-to-use syringes, vials, and cartridges within a single tub format to run on the same filling line. By standardising this part of the process, less changing of machine parts is necessary when switching from one container to another as vials, syringes, and cartridges all come in the same tub. Consequently, pharma manufacturers can fill various drug/container configurations on the same filling line with only very short changeover times in between. The development of iQ is based on the proven nest-and-tub format of RTU syringes, which has been used by the pharma industry to fill syringes for decades. Thus, the concept boosts the advantages of RTU filling concepts.
