Glass vials - Gerresheimer

Sterile Gx RTF® glass vials

Flexibility through different packaging configurations

Our ready to fill-injection vials are produced according to cGMP, washed in a cleanroom, packed in tray or nest and tub and sterilized, ready to fill. Our ready to fill injection vials are also available as Elite glass vials.

Due to the ready to fill status, our customer can proceed without the following steps: no need for washing and sterilization. This means for our customers no need to invest in machinery and manpower. Due to many years of experience in the area of prefillable primary packaging, we can minimize risks for our customers which could occur with sterile packaging.

Gx® RTF prefillable vials are supplied in two different packaging solutions which are perfectly harmonized with the customers filling technology.

Customers can choose between the Gerresheimer tray and the Ompi EZ-Fill® packaging design. The Ompi-EZ-fill® design is available with tray or nest and tub. The advantage for the customer is that he can get sterile vials from two different manufacturers which are packed in an identical way. Due to this standardized platform for prefillable, sterile injection vials, we are simplifying the process for our customers substantially and we reduce potential risks.

Gx RTF Vials are also available in Elite quality.

The classic process for the filling of pharmaceutical or biotechnological drugs into vials provides for the cleaning and subsequent sterilization of the vials as upstream processes. The vials are thereby fed to the cleaning and drying process in direct glass-to-glass contact with one another via separation and supply systems and subsequently subjected to a sterilization process. These are decisive and critical steps for the observance of the required limits for germ count and endotoxins, as well as for general particle contamination, and thus for the later quality of the final product. Direct contact of the glass vials with one another also presents an increased risk of damage, which cannot least lead to an increased risk of glass damage.

Treatment with EtO gas is a standard procedure for the sterilization of prefillable glass containers. The completely validated EtO sterilization process of the Gx® ready-to-fill vials is carried out by a contract company certified by us. Sterilization is based on validated processes in accordance with applicable standards. Sterility proofs are carried out as part of the final product approval for each batch. A COC (certificate of conformity) is created and issued for each batch.

During the filling process at pharmaceuticals customers, Gx® ready-to-use vials are unpacked step-by-step and further processed using the most modern filling and sealing technology. As with the familiar Gx RTF® syringes, the filling and sealing procedure takes place directly in the nested container without glass-to-glass contact. Or the sterile vials are removed from the nested containers and further processed conventionally in the filling line.
