GTS: exclusive poster released for pharmaceutical vial anatomy and classification

Following the success of their unique glassmakers’ periodic table, the experts in glass, Glass Technology Services, are unveiling another free resource – this time focusing on pharmaceutical vial anatomy, classification and their applications

Developed for their pharmaceutical clients, the poster clearly defines the terminology, anatomy and features of the moulded and tubular glass primary packaging formats commonly used across the pharmaceutical supply chain.

The resource includes a table summarising the applicability of glass container types based upon the general recommendations of the European (Ph. Eur) and United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), together with a summary of properties of Types I, II, III and new glass types that have recently entered the marketplace.

To request a copy of this unique new resource, please visit the Glass Technology Services website.

Gareth Jones, Operations Director at Glass Technology Services, said, “We often support clients by verifying pharmacopoeial durability and dimensional specifications, investigating product failures and carrying out delamination propensity studies, so often aid clients in understanding the terminology used across different glass formats – so the poster fits perfectly with many of the requests we receive.

“The pharmaceutical sector represents a large percentage of our customer base and, as with the Glassmakers’ Periodic Table for the manufacturing sector; we wanted to thank them with a specifically designed resource to celebrate our rebranding process.

“We hope that this will be a useful tool for packaging technologists and QA professionals throughout the supply chain.”

The ‘vial anatomy and classification’ poster has been designed by the experts in glass to provide beginners and experts alike with a detailed resource that they can refer to during their work with pharmaceutical packaging.
