Schott AG Key Developments

SCHOTT Unveils New Pharmaceutical Vials

SCHOTT AG has unveiled adaptiQ ready-to-use pharmaceutical vials. The company will also unveiling a brand new product: a new generation of ampoules named SCHOTT Ampoules AC that help to combat counterfeit drugs. Designed in close collaboration with filling-line manufacturers to meet the industry's process requirements, adaptiQ consists of a patented nest that securely holds up to 100 clean and sterile vials in an industry-standard tub. Users can load these directly onto their filling lines without having to perform arduous processing steps, such as washing, drying, and sterilizing. Besides simplifying the process, the new nested packaging protects the glass containers from scratches caused by vial-to-vial and vial-to-machine contact. This reduces the reject rate and also preserves the cosmetic quality of the vials. SCHOTT's adaptiQ vials will be available for purchase early in 2015, initially in the most popular ISO formats: 2R and 4R. SCHOTT will gradually introduce adaptiQ in all common ISO formats, from 2R to 30R. Samples are now available for evaluation. SCHOTT Ampoules AC feature the colored rings which are typically used for ampoule identification, but in the new product, the ink is doped with luminescent nanoparticles. The rings cannot be distinguished with the naked eye from normal identification rings, which can be easily faked. A small detector, however, reveals the presence of the nanoparticles and confirms the authenticity of the product. In this way doctors and patients as well as retailers, pharmacies and customs authorities are able to quickly establish whether a drug is genuine. The multitude of combinations - ampoule shape and size, type of glass as well as colour, shape and number of identification rings or dots including luminescent particles - looks set to make it easier for manufacturers to protect their products against counterfeiting.

SCHOTT AG Introduces New Polymer Prefillable Syringe System for Sensitive Drugs

SCHOTT AG has introduced SCHOTT TopPac SD, a new polymer prefillable syringe system designed to enhance the safety and stability of sensitive drugs, or SD. As pharma companies are looking for safe and reliable packaging solutions, the new product named SCHOTT TopPac SD offers new features for a reduced E&L (extractables and leachables) profile. Through specific component selection and an optimized processing method, SCHOTT TopPac SD offers a significantly reduced level of impurities, decreasing the chance of drug/container interaction. The syringe features an inert COC barrel (cyclic olefin copolymer) that releases no ions or heavy metals, and reduces the chances of a chemical interaction with sensitive drugs. Additionally, the PFS (prefilled syringe) was developed with pure elastomer components in order to reduce the E&L profile. Cross-linked silicone for barrel lubrication reduces the amount of subvisible particles with optimal functionality. Finally, the new syringes are sterilized with an ETO (Ethylene Oxide) sterilization method, rather than irradiation, to further reduce the E&L profile. While the new product features a number of components that were specially designed to house sensitive drugs, the PFS also retains the traditional advantages of the TopPac product line, including glass-like transparency, an integrated Luer Lock system, standardized tub-and-nest offerings, and compatibility with needleless IV connectors.

SCHOTT AG Expands Design Portfolio of to Packages

SCHOTT AG has expanded its design portfolio of TO packages for the 10GBit/sec range. The new SCHOTT TEC TO package enables the development of high-speed data transfer in the tele- and data communications market and is ideal for 10GBit/s laser diodes that require a thermoelectric cooler (TEC), enabling its application in middle to long distances. Since the package is based on a TO footprint, it is also reduced in size compared to the conventional box packages. When designing a TO package for high-frequency applications, impedance matching and space constraints pose the larger challenge to the developer. SCHOTT has overcome these limitations with the new TEC TO design. The thermoelectric cooler allows for controlled heat dissipation, which leads to regulated and stable laser wave lengths. The new design is also based on an extended radio-frequency feed through, which boasts shortened wire-bonds to minimize signal losses to the laser diode, thereby improving the overall performance. In addition, the new TEC TO is a package design based on a well-conducting steel platform that no longer relies on the box design.
