Gerresheimer has announced it will be showcasing glass and plastic pharmaceutical packaging products that are Food and Drug Administration (FDA) registered and manufactured to stringent quality standards to the trade public at CPhI in Mumbai, India.

Subsidiaries of the Gerresheimer Group Triveni and Neutral Glass provide the firm with an excellent positioning in the Indian market. Gerresheimer’s newest factory in India specialises in making Type I ampoules and vials.

“All of our products are manufactured in compliance with the very highest quality standards. These standards apply to both glass and plastic packaging because all Gerresheimer’s production processes are standardized and certified,” said Subodh Gupta, Managing Director at Triveni in India.

Glass and plastic are the first-choice primary packaging materials for solid and liquid dosage pharmaceuticals, a fact reflected in the selection of Gerresheimer products on show at CPhI Mumbai.

Pharmaceutical primary packaging plastic

The popular Triveni Round family has been extended by a 60ml container with a multilayer design for the US market. The Protect features deliver enhanced protection against water vapour and oxygen to sensitive pharmaceutical drugs. It is the first plastic container with a multilayer sandwich structure manufactured in an injection blow molding process.

Gerresheimer is one of the world’s leading suppliers of plastic eye drop bottles. It recently modified the closure system on its Type A dropper bottle to the FDA’s new requirements. Now the tamper-evident ring stays firmly affixed to bottle once it has been opened.

The Duma Pocket’s oval shape makes it look more like a box of sweeteners or peppermints. Gerresheimer is introducing a new member of the Duma Pocket product family at CPhI in India: Duma Pocket 100ml.

Gx vials made from glass

Gerresheimer’s trade fair booth will focus on injection vials, also known as Gx vials. They are among the world’s most popular pharmaceutical packaging solutions and Gerresheimer produces versions in clear and amber glass that can hold between 1ml and 50ml.

The range of tubular glass vials on offer in Asia includes clear and amber glass Types I and II. All manner of different shapes are available, either with or without blowback and compliant with either international standards or the customer’s own specifications.

Gx Ampoules

Gerresheimer offers a wide range of pharmaceutical ampoules made from Type I pharmaceutical glass. The standard portfolio includes ampoules made from clear and amber glass that can hold between 1ml and 30ml.

Among these products are straight-stem, funnel-type, and closed ampoules that comply with the relevant ISO standards (types B, C, and D) with various break systems such as one point cut (OPC), colour break ring (CBR), and score ring. Customer-specific requirements can also be applied in conjunction with the current ISO standards.

Gerresheimer employs cutting-edge techniques and monitoring technology from the development stage right through to production and packing for delivery, while state-of-the-art camera inspection systems continuously check product quality.

With bases in the Americas, Asia, and Europe, Gerresheimer specialises in manufacturing primary packaging for pharmaceuticals in line with the relevant pharmacopeias. All of its factories are currently certified to ISO 9001 and other standards.

Gerresheimer’s pharmaceutical experts for glass and plastic products will be showcasing the new products at CPhl in Mumbai. They can be seen at Booth C87 in Hall 1 of the Bombay Exhibition Centre from November 28 to November 30.
