Date: 17 January 2012
Düsseldorf, January 11, 2012 - Gerresheimer is presenting its entire range of products for the pharma and health industry at Pharmapack in Paris on February 15 and 16 (booth 133).

Its exhibition concept focuses on innovative solutions that meet the increasingly challenging requirements of the health market with regard to quality and safety. The highlights include the award-winning multishell plastic vials for parenteral medications, the COP ClearJectTM syringes and RTF® syringe systems, Duma® Twist-Off OneLiner® closures and diverse inhalers, pen and diagnostic systems.

Close collaboration and dialogue

By continuously extending its range of plastic containers for injectables (MultiShell and ClearJect) and user-oriented syringe accessories such as TELC, an extra-safe closure system, Gerresheimer is able to offer customers one of the most comprehensive ranges of products in the market. “Close collaboration and dialogue with our customers enables us to drive the development of user-oriented solutions,” said Claudia Petersen, Director Business Development Gerresheimer Tubular Glass.

Advice on improving efficiency

Gerresheimer is famous for its high quality pharma glass containers. The comprehensive range of products includes injection and infusion bottles, droppers and tablet jars in a variety of designs, shapes and sizes in glass categories I, II and III. It also provides advice and services to improve the efficiency of customer production lines so that they can satisfy current pharmaceutical industry productivity requirements. For example, filling and packaging systems have to operate at optimum speed with minimum downtime. Detailed analyses and the application of experience gained in the food sector perceptibly improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).

All services from a single source

The Gerresheimer product portfolio also includes drug delivery and diagnostic systems, as well as plastic medical technology products. The company additionally provides a comprehensive range of services from one single source: from initial design sketch, through tool engineering, automation technology and production to packaging and international logistics.

The best properties of plastic and glass

The innovative MultiShell vials unite the best properties of plastic and glass in a new, high quality container for liquid medications. The vials have a unique triple-layer structure consisting of a layer of polyamide sandwiched between two COP (Cyclic Olefin Polymer) layers. They are far more break-resistant than glass vials. Gerresheimer received the German Packaging Award in November 2011 for the development of the MultiShell plastic vials.
