Workshop: packaging and administering biologicals safely and securely
Which glass and plastic primary packaging and which administration systems are suitable for newly developed drugs, such as biologicals, and therapies? What do chronically ill patients need to be able to take care of themselves reliably on an ongoing basis? These and many related questions will be answered by Amir Tahric and Dr Wenzel Novak in their workshop at Pharmapack on February 6 at 10 am.
Gerresheimer is a specialist for primary packaging for biologics
The most important trend fore-cast by pharmaceutical experts is the continuing, worldwide increasing demand for biological drugs and biosimilars. With the recently founded, Gx Biological Solutions organization, Gerresheimer installed a dedicated team to serve the highly specific demands in the Biological playfield.
Gerresheimer at Pharmapack: type II glass injection and infusion bottles for parenteral applications
As a leading provider of speciality pharmaceutical packaging, Gerresheimer also specializes in manufacturing pharmaceutical containers made from type II glass. Two hardening and tempering methods allow extremely small injection bottles as well as typical infusion bottles with larger volumes to be produced. Guaranteeing the quality and hydrolytic resistance of the type II glass is the top priority here. The company is defending its leading position by introducing innovative furnace technology, expanding its cleanroom, and introducing automation and digitalization to its testing and packing lines.

Gerresheimer further expanding production output in Asia
Gerresheimer has over 35 sites in Europe, the Americas, and Asia making speciality packaging from glass and plastic.

This will enable it to offer its customers in this major region the best possible supply service.
Primary Drug Containers for needle-free injection
Together with Portal Instruments (Boston, USA), Gerresheimer Medical Systems has developed an innovative primary drug container for use in needle-free automatic injection systems. The cartridge-like container, made of the high-performance polymer COP, serves as the primary packaging for the sensitive active agent and is equipped with a nozzle, with which the hair-thin jet of medication is generated for the injection.
