Pharmapack 2019: Innovative packaging solutions for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries by Gerresheimer

Düsseldorf/Paris, January 16, 2019. For the first time, Gerresheimer will be showcasing solutions for digital and electronic drug delivery products with micro rotary piston pumps from Sensile Medical at booth A94 at Pharmapack, Paris (Porte de Versailles), on February 6 and 7. Along with product innovations in the form of Gx InnoSafe, Gx ClearJect, and Gx Elite vials, the company will also present its safe and convenient packaging solutions for the administration of medication at booth B62. 

Sensile Medical: digital and electronic drug delivery products with micro rotary piston pumps

Last year's acquisition of Sensile Medical AG allowed Gerresheimer to expand their business model and become an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for drug delivery platforms with digital and electronic capabilities. The company developed a new kind of patented micro pump, which is the key component of all product platforms. SenseCore is small and very precise in dosage. Consisting of only two plastic parts, it can be produced at a low cost. Thanks to its high degree of flexibility, it is compatible with a variety of drugs.

Sensile Medical is already working very successfully on projects for diabetics and in other treatment areas such as Parkinson’s disease. Sensile Medical was granted the EC certificate for the wearable micro pump they designed specifically for the treatment of Parkinson's. A European pharmaceutical company has obtained the CE declaration. This makes the product the first micro pump by Gerresheimer’s subsidiary Sensile Medical that will be used commercially.

Perfect Gx Elite Vials: the top of their class


The Gx Elite Vials have set new standards for type I vials made from borosilicate glass. They are the result of comprehensive optimization of the conversion process, removing all risks that can lead to product defects during manufacturing. Above all else, it prevents any glass-to-glass or glass-to-metal contact from when the tubular glass is made right through to the final packaging of the vials.
