Three Gerresheimer experts at Innnopack Speaker’s Corner on Wednesday, October 23

Dr. Bernhard Hinsch, Director Quality Management TGE at Gerresheimer Bünde, will be talking about “Pharmaceutical tubular glass vials. Enhanced manufacturing and inspection technology for achievement of premium quality levels” at Speakers Corner from 10 - 10.25 a.m. Pharmaceutical tubular glass vials for demanding biotech applications have to be manufactured with purpose-designed glass forming equipment. Quality by Design (QbD) starts with the requirement specification for the vial forming line and special accessories such as in-line inspection systems. This presentation also covers the product characteristics and applications of premium quality vials.

Bernd Zeiss, Manager Technical Pre-Sales Support at Gerresheimer Tubular Glass will be at Speakers Corner from 2.30 - 2.55 p.m. with a presentation entitled “Syringe function - Technical aspects of prefillable glass and COP polymer syringes”. The increasingly widespread use of prefillable syringes (PFS) is raising questions on syringe function and ease of use. Break loose and gliding forces are two of the syringe´s key features. They are a good indication of the robustness and quality of the manufacturing process and the most important properties for the medical doctors, nurses and patients who use the syringe to administer medical drugs. Bernd Zeiss will be discussing the various properties of prefillable syringes, including different siliconization methods (spray and baked-on), different stoppering methods (vent tube and vacuum stoppering), different plunger stopper designs, the impact of storage over time and different barrel materials: glass and COP.

“High performance Plastic Vials – Improved gas barrier” – Dr. Wolfgang Dirk, Product Manager Parenteral and Business Development at Gerresheimer Plastic Packaging will be talking about the key performance characteristics of Gerresheimer´s recently launched Multishell® vials from 3 - 3.25 p.m. The vials provide the pharma industry with a glass-like transparent container with superior break-resistance for improved safety. Dr. Dirk will also be explaining the high gas barrier performance of multilayer plastic vials as compared to glass and monolayer polyolefin vials.
