Plastic containers and closures for solid and liquid pharmaceuticals

Gerresheimer Plastic Packaging specializes inplastic packaging products for the pharma industry. Its multifaceted product portfolio extends from plastic packaging products for solid pharmaceuticals such as drugs and powders to containers for liquid drugs, including ophthalmic and rhinological applications.

It also manufactures a special product for parenteral drugs called the MultiShell vial, which is made of COP (Cyclic Olefin Polymer). Although the vials have glass-like transparency, they also have a far higher break-resistance than glass, which makes them very safe to use. They are suitable for parenteral medications with a wide pH range and ideal for pharmaceutical drugs and formulations which attack the surface of the glass, causing particles to form.
