AAPS 2013: Gerresheimer presents its glass and plastic pharmaceutical packaging products

(PresseBox) ( Düsseldorf/San Diego, )
The healthcare sector's requirements of innovative packaging products are getting increasingly stringent. Quality, safety and convenience are central features of the Gerresheimer products displayed on stands 311 and 312 at the AAPS National Biotechnology Conference in San Diego, which takes place at the Sheraton Hotel from May 20 to 22.

Gerresheimer specializes in reliable primary packaging for pharmaceuticals made of materials that are ideal for the product's field of application, from traditional materials such as glass to breakproof alternatives such as plastic. Gerresheimer delivers the best packaging solutions from both worlds for products ranging from standard container to innovative system.

Gerresheimer is renowned for its pre-fillable RTF® syringes made of tubular glass. Pre-fillable syringes are available as bulk products and in ready-to-fill format, which means that they are supplied washed, siliconized, pre-assembled and sterilized.

The plastic ClearJectTM syringes and the MultiShell® vials are two special products that Gerresheimer manufactures in COP (Cyclic Olefin Polymer). COP is highly shock resistant and breakproof. It is also ex­tremely transparent, with light permeability of over 90 percent plus very low water vapor and oxygen permeability. Heavy metal-free COP is perfect as a primary packaging for sensitive medications for oncology, ophthalmology and other fields of medicine. The COP contact surface also improves the stability of the highly sensitive medications and re­duces interactions between the medication and packaging to the mini­mum.

Gerresheimer received the German Packaging Award in 2011 for the development of the MultiShell® plastic vials.
