Düsseldorf, October 14, 2020. With DropControl, Gerresheimer has developed a new type of dropper insert for modern drugs with low viscosity for ophthalmology, which prevents the drug from flowing in uncontrollably during use.

“Lots of people need eye drops regularly. It is therefore important that these vials function reliably and simply to the last drop. With DropControl, it is now even easier than before,“ says Niels Düring, Global Executive Vice President at Gerresheimer Plastic Packaging.

DropControl is designed to prevent uncontrolled drops from flowing out of the bottle during dosing. The outer part of the pipette has only been changed slightly for this, while the inner part has been given an insert that is connected to the outer part. It is suitable for all bottles and closures of the Gerresheimer A, C, E and F dropper bottle systems.

Conjunctivitis and stye are particularly widespread among the eye diseases. In most cases they are harmless. After an ophthalmologist has diagnosed the disease and started appropriate therapy with eye drops or ointments, the symptoms quickly subside, it is always advisable to see an ophthalmologist who will prescribe the correct eye drops.

Dropper bottles for all common volumes

DropControl is produced for the various dropper bottle types A, C, E and F by Gerresheimer under clean room conditions in sizes of 5, 10, 15 and 30 ml. The bottle and the dropper are made of LDPE, the cap of HDPE.

Gerresheimer takes over the irradiation with gamma rays

As an extended service, after the production of the vials, Gerresheimer also offers irradiation with gamma rays by selected and specialized partner companies on request.
