WHEATON® High Recovery Vials Reduce Residual Product Waste by 99%

Pharmaceutical companies manufacturing billions of liquid doses each year risk significant product waste when using flat-bottom vials for end user packaging. According to the U.S. Pharmacopoeia (USP), “each container of an injection contains sufficient excess” of the labelled dose or size to allow withdrawal of the labelled quantity of drug.  High Recovery Vials (HRVs) that feature conical shaped bottoms significantly reduce residual waste by enabling maximum product retrieval without the need to overfill.  WHEATON®, a leading provider of laboratory glass and plastic consumables for life science and biopharmaceuticals, including HRVs, conducted a study that examined residual waste in HRVs and flat-bottom vials.
