Pack Expo Healthcare 2017: Gerresheimer’s plastic packaging for the healthcare industry

Gerresheimer’s debut at the Pack Expo trade fair in Las Vegas from September 27 to 29 (booth N-638) will focus on new safe and patient-friendly drugs packaging made from plastic such as its Duma Twist-Off and Triveni US-type containers, eye drop bottles with fixed US TE-ring, Duma Pocket containers, and COP monolayer and MultiShell vials. Gerresheimer will begin manufacturing a wide variety of US containers in US in September.

“We can supply the right type of packaging for virtually any drug,” states Franck Langet, Business Development Manager North America, who will be advising existing and potential customers in person at booth N-638 in the Las Vegas Convention Center together with his team.

Gx MultiShell leak-tight, shatterproof, and transparent

“The kind of powerful active ingredients that are being developed nowa- days need shatter-resistant packaging and an oxygen barrier,” Franck Langet says, explaining the properties of the Gx MultiShell vial. With its innovative multilayer structure made from COP and PA, this transparent vial is a unique packaging product that meets all these requirements. Gerresheimer also provides monolayer versions of its COP containers.

Eye drop bottles now even safer

“Sometimes, the devil is in the detail,” reveals Franck Langet, adding that Gerresheimer is among the world’s largest suppliers of eye drop bottle systems. The TE-ring now remains firmly attached to the bottle after it is opened in line with new FDA requirements.

Triveni plastic containers with induction seal

Made specially for the U.S. market and primarily in white, the plastic containers manufactured under the Triveni brand are available in round and square versions, with some also equipped with a black lining for particularly light-sensitive drugs. All containers are fitted with an induc- tion seal. The containers are available in various sizes and designs. All models are FDA-approved.

Duma Pocket 100 ml: handy and childproof

The Duma Pocket 100 ml has an ergonomic design that enables the oval-shaped box to be held and opened in one hand. Boasting an integrated closure and a dose dispenser, it is tamper- and childproof and easy for elderly people to handle.

Gerresheimer has several sites in the Americas that make pharmaceuti- cal packaging products out of glass and plastic, including those of Cen- tor the leading manufacturer of plastic containers that meet the regu- latory requirements for prescription drugs in the US.

Ultra-modern production processes worldwide standards

Gerresheimer employs the world’s latest techniques and monitoring technology from the development stage right through to production and packing for delivery. Gerresheimer uses cutting-edge clean room tech- nology to guarantee optimum cleanliness for its products in terms of particles and germs. With bases in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, Gerresheimer specializes in manufacturing primary packaging for phar- maceuticals in line with the relevant pharmacopeias. All its factories are currently certified to standards including ISO 9001.
