Pharmaceutical fill-and-finish machine with DNA strand

Fill-and-Finish services

Support for the processing of containment solutions from small to commercial scale

Enabling early-stage sample filling and efficient commercial fill-and-finish

For customers without the capability for sample filling, SCHOTT Pharma can fill syringes, cartridges and vials for early-stage testing. Sample preparation and storage capabilities allow engineers to test and examine the interdependencies between fill-and-finish processes and accelerated aging of drug-container interaction under controlled laboratory conditions.

One key aspect for the long-term success of SCHOTT Pharma customers is the compatibility of our containment solutions with efficient commercial processing, which is why we consider process compatibility a key priority in solution design. SCHOTT Pharma offers a number of services to assure compatibility and optimize line efficiency, including:

  • Compatibility assessment for a systematic review of compatibility between secondary packaging, containment solution, and line equipment.
  • Toolbox and consultancy for a systematic review of the origins of glass breakage and cosmetic defects, plus line maintenance.
