PDA Annual Meeting 2014 - Gerresheimer presents innovative plastic packaging solutions

Düsseldorf, 19 March 2014 – The theme of this year’s PDA from April 7-9 at the JW Marriott Hotel in San Antonio in Texas (USA) is biopharmaceutical and sterile manufacturing. Gerresheimer will be exclusively presenting its entire portfolio of standard and specialist plastic packaging solutions for the pharma and healthcare industry at booth 405.

The Gx MultiShell vial is ideal for biopharmaceuticals. It was developed as a new and safer solution for formulations with alkaline pH values and toxic pharmaceuticals. The new Gx MultiShell vials unite the best properties of plastic and glass in a new, high quality container for liquid medications. They are made of COP/polyamide/COP (cyclic olefin polymer) in a sandwich structure. These multi-layer vials are far more break-resistant than glass vials.

Gerresheimer specializes in reliable primary packaging for pharmaceuticals made of materials that are ideal for the product application.
