Drug containment and delivery services

Realizing new containment solutions for your drug product requirements

Developing customized drug containment and delivery solutions

Sometimes, established containment solutions don’t match the specific needs of a new drug product or an intended lifecycle adaption. With SCHOTT Pharma’s drug containment and delivery services, the right drug container is customized for your product’s specific needs – from system design, through prototyping, to process implementation and GMP-compliant documentation.

The scope of drug containment and delivery development includes:

  • Primary packaging containers (e.g. syringes, cartridges, vials, or ampoules)

  • Containment system components (e.g. plungers, closures, closure systems, and integrated needles)

  • Adjacent components (e.g. plunger rods and backstops)

  • Outer packaging for infeed of primary packaging to the filling line and transportation

  • System development as a combination product

  • Device-containment alignment

A dedicated project manager guides your solution through development

Once the requirements of your containment and delivery solution have been jointly defined, a SCHOTT Pharma Project Manager will follow a stage-gate process to take your solution from concept to industrialization.

In this established process, design reviews combined with internal and joint steering committees or review teams will ensure information is exchanged, requirements are met, and steady progress is made towards joint objectives.

System development - When designing container, elastomeric, or peripheral components we focus on system aspects and interfaces to ensure system functionality.

Proven competence - Our long-term track record of customer projects demonstrates our reliability, technical expertise, and competence in project delivery.

Strong network - We collaborate with leading manufacturers to optimize compatibility for efficient fill-and-finish processing and injection device integration.

Integrated lab - Using next-door lab capabilities, we can optimize and verify the solution to your specific requirements based on short loops and maximized learning.
