High-quality ampoules for secure storage of drugs

For more than 130 years, ampoules have been playing an important role in the widespread supply of basic medicine such as painkillers, inflammation inhibitors, and anesthetics. Around the world there is a large demand for drugs, which can be met using ampoules.

Permanent process optimization, 100 % inline dimensional control, stringent inspections of cosmetic defects, frequent employee training, and decades of pharmaceutical glass expertise ensure that SCHOTT Pharma’s ampoules maintain their high quality standards.

Available in a range of formats (1-30 ml) and forms (B, C and D) for improved filling, SCHOTT Pharma´s ampoules provide consistently high quality standards. Together with our Ampoule Academy and almost 100 years of expertise in producing ampoules, we offer knowledge and experience to deal with these challenges and improve your TCO (total cost of ownership).

Seeking solutions for your process challenges

Master your stability problems

Glass leachables can cause stability issues for different kind of injectable solutions. SCHOTT Pharma services offer a range of analytical tests to assess any potential risks and find strategies to avoid them. These tests include drug compatibility and delamination studies, container inspection, and particle analysis.

Reduce breakage on the line

To reduce breakage on the line, SCHOTT Pharma offers two solutions. The first is identifying and understanding the “pressure peaks” of the fill-and-finish line, using SmartSkin Quantifeel™ to optimize fill-and-finish line parameters. The second is analytical strength tests of transported containers to understand the root causes of damage generated by the fill-and-finish line with the help of SCHOTT Pharma Services.
