Duesseldorf/Paris, October 11, 2021. At booth B60/B64 at Pharmapack in Paris, Gerresheimer, a leading global manufacturer of primary packaging for the pharmaceutical industry is presenting its new Gx RTF vials product offering. They accompany the product from clinical test to industrial filling because they are already depyrogenated, sterile and therefore ready for use. Gerresheimer offers both its own packaging, as well as the familiar SG EZ-fill packaging design.

Gx RTF vials – ready for filling

The Gx RTF injection vials are made from type I borosilicate glass and meet all current requirements of the applicable ISO standards and pharmacopeias (USP and Ph. Eur.). They are manufactured in accordance with cGMP, washed in a cleanroom, packed in trays or in nests and tub and finally sterilized. Gerresheimer offers its own packaging as well as the well-known SG EZ-fill packaging design. This means the vials are ready for the next steps in the filling process without any further and/or additional handling. The benefits are obvious: sterile delivery, a simplified fill and finish process, the highest quality standards, flexibility thanks to various possible packaging options and a wide range of filling and sealing technologies. These all lead to a significant reduction on overall manufacturing costs across the product’s entire lifecycle and improve patient safety.

Flexibility through various packaging configurations and global operational footprint

The range for RTF vials includes various end-of-line packaging solutions. These new packaging formats allow customers to use RTF vials to support their operations in all phases of drug and new drug product development, as well as in small or large commercial production. SG EZ-fill Nest & Tub packaging products offering 2R, 6R and 10R vial formats are special tray packaging formats that support all tubular glass products from 2ml to 30ml (clear and amber). Additional packaging solutions are currently being developed to support molded glass products ranging in size from 5ml to 50ml (clear and amber).

Highest quality requirements

Gx RTF injection vials meet all specified requirements of applicable ISO standards and pharmacopoeias (USP and Ph. Eur.). They are offered in Gx Elite, Gx Armor and Gx Pharma Plus quality formats to meet or exceed customer or industry quality requirements. RTF packaging solutions offered with SG EZ-fill packaging platforms further improve end-product quality by avoiding glass-to-glass contact, which can lead to glass breakage and the development of cosmetic defects.

Gerresheimer injection vials according to international standards

Injection vials are the standard for primary packaging for parenteral medicines. Gerresheimer RTF vials are available in many sizes. They meet and exceed all international standards and pharmacopoeia requirements. The range of applications includes customized solutions for high-quality products for combination medical devices, biotechnologically produced medicines, and branded products as well as other specialized pharmaceutical applications.
Gerresheimer's global production sites manufacture and supply for individual and specific market requirements, which has a positive impact on the customer's total cost of ownership.
