Gerresheimer at CPhI China: Innovative, safe, and secure packaging for drugs

Düsseldorf/Shanghai, May 22, 2019 – Gerresheimer is presenting various new products for safe and secure drug packaging and administration at CPhI China in Shanghai from June 18 to 20, 2019 (SNIEC, booth N5P21). At the beginning of the year, the company strengthened its presence on the Asian market by opening a new plant in Changzhou, dedicated to producing CDFA-registered plastic containers.

Gerresheimer is showcasing a series of regional and international products for safe and secure drug packaging and administration at CPhl China. The company’s comprehensive product portfolio includes insulin pens, inhalers, micropumps, prefillable syringes, injection vials, ampoules, bottles, and containers for liquid and solid medicines with closure and safety systems.

Polymer syringes

This year, Gerresheimer is presenting a broad range of prefillable polymer syringes for highly sensitive bioengineered drugs. The benefits of prefillable syringes include the low risk of the syringe interacting with the drug, safety and reliable functionality for the end user, and outstanding compatibility with medical products.

Gx Elite Vials – top quality for even greater patient safety

Gx Elite Vials – top quality for even greater patient safety

With its Gx Elite vials for injectables made from type I borosilicate glass, Gerresheimer is unveiling the result of a careful product development process spanning several years. Glass-to-glass contact is avoided throughout production, ensuring that the vials are extremely shatterproof, highly robust, and free from cosmetic defects. They boast extremely accurate dimensions, while their resistance to delamination protects the drug inside. Simple handling and a range of packaging options ensure that Gx Elite vials can be supplied for end-to-end use on various filling lines. This cuts costs while improving quality, as countless past and ongoing tests by notable customers have shown.

Vials for injectables from Shuangfeng in China

Gerresheimer’s Shuangfeng site has been supplying many well-known pharmaceutical companies with tubular glass bottles for decades now. The range includes 1 ml to 50 ml bottles, 1 ml to 30 ml ampoules in various designs, and dental and insulin cartridges. The site is also home to a professional laboratory for complete glass analysis and test projects where extraction and leaching experiments can be conducted.
