Glass tubes for pharmaceutical packaging

Type I glassses FIOLAX® clear and amber and Boro-8330™ provide high-chemical resistance for low-risk of drug-container interaction. AR-Glas® and ILLAX® are suitable for the production of containers for packaging orals, tablets, and powders.
First hydrolytic class glass tubing for pharmaceutical and biotechnological products
Invented by SCHOTT in 1911, FIOLAX® glass tubing is used to make high-quality packaging containers for sensitive drug products, such as biopharmaceuticals or drugs that needs to be lyophilised.
FIOLAX® amber helps protect pharmaceuticals from short-wave visible light and ultraviolet rays. This meets a large number of national and international packaging requirements for parenteral medicines.
Glass tubing for the production of vials, ampoules, syringes, and cartridges
FIOLAX® is used to form a vast range of packaging products, including vials, ampoules, syringes, and cartridges.
Tubing closed ends are manufactured in accordance with SCHOTT’s own DENSOCAN® system. This involves the separation of tubes with low-particle content, which are then sealed over an open flame. This is a safe and reliable method of avoiding contamination in the process chain.
Glass tubing module-based training
SCHOTT offers module-based training concept FIOLAX® Academy. Customers are provided with six modules, covering topics from tubing glass basics to drug-container interaction. Individual workshops are also provided.
