Primary Packaging Glass - Metal-free glass syringes

PDF 1.1 MB

One problem associated with syringe use is that traces of tungsten or other metals occasionally leave residue behind in the bore when the syringe cone is shaped. Gerresheimer developed a production technology registered for patent where the pin used to shape the cone is made of a special ceramic. So we can offer a metal-free 1 ml Gx RTF® Luer lock glass syringe. The process can be transferred to other Luer lock syringe sizes or to Luer cone syringes of various sizes at any time.

  • Webinar Partner Presentation - Gerresheimer

    Overcoming challenges when developing subcutaneous drug delivery devices that empower patient self-administration. The trend in parenteral patient therapy has been moving towards the home-care setting for some time as it empowers patient independence. However, home administration brings additional requirements when developing a delivery device, and these are constantly evolving. Patient safety is always paramount, but usability is another critical factor, as well as sustainability and connectivity to support patient adherence. The challenge is to design a device to meet as many requirements as possible that can be ready on the market within 4-8 years. In this presentation we will discuss Gerresheimer’s mission of “innovating for a better life” and how we apply this when developing solutions that respond to the needs of patients, our pharmaceutical industry customers, and the environment, today and into the future.

  • Webinar Keynote Address

    How can device and packaging innovation influence patient ability and motivation to use their treatment?" With examples from research of how patients learn and become motivated, and how industry can use these processes to influence patient outcomes. Patients learn through a mixture of stimuli and learning processes, these stimuli can be adopted into device design and packaging to enhance the patient's feelings about their medication. Presently many patients using complex devices, like inhalers, make critical errors which entails repeated re-training. This presentation looks at innovative ways of embedding learning, that could be adopted by future device and packaging design.
