Digitising the Chain

The pharmaceutical and medical supplies sector, like every other, has changed almost beyond recognition in the past decade, thanks to the development and availability of data-driven systems. For example, artificial intelligence is widely seen as the next frontier in R&D, helping to speed up clinical trials, improve their validity, and get drugs to market sooner.

Production, warehousing, and distribution have undergone a similar transition, with automation and data insights increasingly being used to speed up processes and improve traceability and compliance. Digital processes now impact every aspect of the modern supply chain, from Tier 1 drugs manufacturers to smallmedium enterprises supplying sterile packaging or components.

System Selection

Agile systems enable pharma companies to meet the requirements and challenges of a rapidly evolving sector. The availability of real-time data means production managers can make better informed decisions, moving from merely reporting what is happening on the shop floor to driving positive action. Its application is akin to researchers conducting clinical trials using data from multiple sources, such as wearable technology, rather than relying on limited and/or historic results to deliver more rigorous results faster.

Syringe siliconization

Gerresheimer AG

Ready-to-fill, i.e. sterile, prefillable glass syringes, are washed, siliconized, sterilized and packaged by the primary packaging manufacturer. They can then be filled by the pharmaceutical companies without any further processing. These days the majority of prefillable syringes are made of glass and the trend looks set to continue. The siliconization of the syringe barrel is an extremely important aspect of the production of sterile, prefillable glass syringes because the functional interaction of the glass barrel siliconization and the plunger stopper siliconization is crucial to the efficiency of the entire system. Both inadequate and excessive siliconization can cause problems in this connection. The use of modern technology can achieve an extremely uniform distribution of silicone oil in glass syringes with reduced quantities of silicone oil. Another option for minimizing the amount of free silicone oil in a syringe is the thermal fixation of the silicone oil on the glass surface in a process called baked-on siliconization. Plastic-based silicone oil-free or low-silicone oil prefillable syringe systems are a relatively new development. Silicone oil-free lubricant coatings for syringes are also currently in the development phase.
