Empowering Pharma Advancements: SCHOTT Pharma Unveils Cutting-Edge Ready-to-Use (RTU) Glass Cartridges
SCHOTT Pharma, a trailblazer in pharmaceutical drug containment solutions, introduces its revolutionary ready-to-use (RTU) glass cartridges for seamless clinical and commercial filling. These small-volume cartridges are ideal for dispensing insulin and GLP-1 drugs, addressing diabetes and obesity, while large-volume cartridges prove instrumental in storing high-value biologics for conditions like cancer or Parkinson’s disease.
Elevating Pharma Efficiency: RTU Solutions for Clinical Trials to Commercial Production
Andreas Reisse, CEO of SCHOTT Pharma, emphasizes the company’s commitment as a pharma industry partner, reducing the workload for drug manufacturers by handling time and cost-intensive processes. RTU solutions, already integral in filling smaller drug charges for clinical trials, are now gaining prominence in commercial drug production. SCHOTT Pharma’s comprehensive RTU portfolio, encompassing cartridges, syringes, and vials, is poised to supply substantial quantities for human use.
Quality Beyond Measure: High-Quality Borosilicate Glass for Enhanced Drug Stability
Crafted from high-quality borosilicate glass, SCHOTT Pharma’s RTU cartridges enhance drug stability through optimized leachable behavior and prequalified components, including combi-seals and plungers. Elisa Wiesner, Global Product Manager for bulk and sterile cartridges at SCHOTT Pharma, emphasizes how RTU cartridges expedite time-to-market for pharma companies, CDMOs, and start-ups, ensuring drugs reach patients promptly and safely.
iQ® Platform Integration: Unparalleled Flexibility in Filling Processes
Integrated into the SCHOTT iQ® platform, alongside RTU syringes and vials, the RTU cartridges are supplied in an industry-standard nest and tub, maintaining nesting throughout the filling process. This innovation eliminates glass-to-glass contact, providing pharma companies with unmatched flexibility for filling various medications in distinct containers on a single filling line.
