Gx InnoSafe protects against unintentional needlestick injuries and is easy to fill

Nurses are among the occupational groups with the most frequent cuts and puncture wounds. This can lead to infection with dangerous pathogens such as hepatitis B and C viruses or HIV. The Gx InnoSafe safety syringe is the first syringe on the market with a passive needle protection system. Its function prevents anyone from accidentally injuring themselves through an unintentional needle stick on a syringe that has already been used, as the needle is fixed in a sleeve after use. In addition to these unique safety features, a special feature of the Gx InnoSafe syringe is that it can be processed on all existing filling lines without any additional preparation or conversion steps. Furthermore, it complies with all regulations without any additional investment.

Gx Elite Vials set a new standard

The Gx Elite vials are the result of a careful product development process spanning several years. The primary focus for was to provide a Type I vial made of borosilicate glass that would be a safer product for the customer and the patient. The highly shatter-resistant vials are extremely durable, free of cosmetic defects and can be customized for specialized customer requirements. Gx Elite Glass vials are produced using the quality by design (QbD) approach that creates a product that will exceed customers’ expectations. A combination of design, manufacturing, and handling improvements along with specialized final packaging also ensures that the vials can be supplied for end-to-end use on various filling lines. These types of improvements make it possible for our customers to supply products to the market as needed and reduce costs for the industry, which will ultimately help everyone. Gx Elite vials, which meet all existing regulatory requirements worldwide, are also available in RTF (ready-to-fill) format.

EcoLine for the sustainable development of plastic containers

With EcoLine, Gerresheimer demonstrates criteria in the development and production of its well-known plastic container series for solid and liquid medications which play an important role in the design of sustainable packaging solutions and thus contribute to greater environmental compatibility. The concept includes the criteria of weight, volume, material, and recyclability. EcoLine can be applied to the development of all existing Gerresheimer product families such as Duma, Triveni, the dropper bottles and to PET bottles.

For your eyes only - Dropper bottle systems for ophthalmic drugs

Often it is only the small improvements that make a product ideal for the application. The design was developed specifically for the US market. Many people must take eye drops several times a day, so it is important that these bottles work reliably until the last drop. One example is the new dropper bottle system E / F with different closure solutions - a closure where the tamper-evident ring (TE) remains attached to the bottle after opening (system E) and a sleeved cap (system F). They can be supplied already sterilized (gamma irradiated) or packaged for sterilization only.

RTU COP Vials for injectable and diagnostic products

RTU COP (Cyclic Olefin Polymer) vials combine the best features of plastic and glass packaging for liquid drugs. With their high break strength, inert resin material and high transparency, they are an ideal packaging solution for cell and gene therapy products. The vials offer an inert contact surface and have been proven in various pharmaceutical applications in the market. They also provide manufacturers of toxic or high potency drug solutions with a unique packaging safety feature. The monolayer plastic vials are offered in a standard ISO-like format in 2-, 5-, 10- and 50 ml sizes.
