• Dedicated Inspection Suite to Optimize ECL Production

    Luminer—a labeling solution provider specializing in extended content labels (ECLs) for pharmaceutical ethical and over-the-counter (OTC) packaging, clinical trials, and various other narrow web applications for the cosmetics, food and beverage, and chemicals sectors—has streamlined its product inspection capabilities by introducing a dedicated 7,000 sq ft inspection suite at its primary manufacturing facility in Lakewood, N.J. The quality management segregation also comes with an infrastructure investment: a third 100% inspection platform and a back-number validation system. The dedicated space will further improve Luminer’s comprehensive quality management processes. In particular, it is designed to optimize QA/QC oversight for the company’s specialty ECLs. Due to their inherently stacked, page-over-page nature, ECLs pose unique inspection challenges requiring niche-specific solutions. Luminer provides 100% label inspection—a must for its broad set of pharma customers. For ECLs, this entails a complex process that involves, among other extra steps, precision vision systems inspecting individual sheets prior to folding, glue line monitoring to ensure all ECL pages are affixed properly and in correct order, and final inspection initiatives such as thickness monitoring to confirm label-on-label mounting veracity. Luminer’s addition of a back-number validation system provides additional assurance for pharma customers by helping to ensure labels are matched to their proper individual packages. Among other benefits, this helps simplify the label application process and, for prescription products, lends to easier compliance with unit-level serialization requirements.

  • Dose eye drops even more precisely with DropControl

    “Lots of people need eye drops regularly. It is therefore important that these vials function reliably and simply to the last drop. With DropControl, it is now even easier than before,“ says Niels Düring, Global Executive Vice President at Gerresheimer Plastic Packaging.

    DropControl is designed to prevent uncontrolled drops from flowing out of the bottle during dosing. The outer part of the pipette has only been changed slightly for this, while the inner part has been given an insert that is connected to the outer part. It is suitable for all bottles and closures of the Gerresheimer A, C, E and F dropper bottle systems.

    Conjunctivitis and stye are particularly widespread among the eye diseases. In most cases they are harmless. After an ophthalmologist has diagnosed the disease and started appropriate therapy with eye drops or ointments, the symptoms quickly subside, it is always advisable to see an ophthalmologist who will prescribe the correct eye drops.

  • Stevanato Group to provide SG ITC for Gx RTF syringes

    SG ITC (Integrated Tip Cap), the twist-off closure of Stevanato Group, is an established and especially user-friendly system solution for Luer Lock syringes, which will now be included in Gerresheimer program.


    Piombino Dese (PD), October 6th, 2020 - Stevanato Group, a leading producer of glass primary packaging and provider of integrated capabilities for drug delivery systems and Gerresheimer, a leading global partner of the pharmaceuticals and health care industries, announced a commercialization agreement according to which Gerresheimer will be offering Luer lock syringes featuring SG Integrated Tip Cap closure (ITC) to pharmaceutical customers.

    The integrated seal cap consists of two components: an elastomeric component, which is available in different formulations and a rigid, translucent polymer cap. The elastomer component is inserted into the plastic cap, screwed together with a Luer Lock adapter, and pre-assembled on the syringe. Compared to traditional Luer Cone systems, this solution offers a syringe closure with increased stability, thus protecting the drug product. The twist-off closure system responds to the containment needs of different drugs: vaccines, hyaluronic acid, biotech drugs and other viscous drugs. It has been developed and produced according to ISO 11040-7 standard and fit perfect on Gx RTF syringes. Gerresheimer will offer 1.0 ml long and 1.0 ml short Luer Lock syringes with the integrated twist-off closure in the first step. Additional formats will follow.

    Increased safety and user-friendliness for medical specialists

    The seal cap is securely screwed onto the Luer Lock syringe, so that accidental removal of the cap is prevented. The familiar twist-off function offers medical specialists improved user-friendliness without impairing the integrity of the pre-fillable syringes. The structured surface simplifies the removal of the cap. “We combine our syringes with system components that are primarily aimed at user-friendliness and safety,” Manfred Baumann, Global Executive Vice President Sales & Marketing, Administration & TCC, Member of the Management Board, Gerresheimer Regensburg GmbH, explains. “The new SG ITC twist-off closure suits these aims outstandingly.” Gerresheimer already delivers syringes equipped with the seal cap, which can be processed on existing filling lines, under the name Gx TWILC (Twistable Integrated Luer lock Closure). The 100-hole nests are packaged in a tub and sterilized with ethylene oxide gas (EtO).

    “We are delighted that Gerresheimer is adopting our leading technology. This closure system for syringes adds up to the EZ-fill® platform for vials Gerresheimer already joined a few years ago, broadening the standardized solutions available in the market. Pharma customers can benefit from increased flexibility, consistent quality and safety, and reduced time-to-market”, says Mauro Stocchi, Chief Business Officer at Stevanato Group.

  • Production of aluminium aerosol cans only decreased slightly despite the corona crisis

    Moderate minus of roughly two percent worldwide in the first half of 2020

    AEROBAL, the International Organization of Aluminum Aerosol Container Manufacturers, recorded a relatively moderate decline in the global production of aluminum cans of almost two percent for the first half of 2020 despite the corona pandemic. Compared to most other industrial sectors, the industry is still doing relatively well in a global comparison.

  • Neopac Introduces Market’s First Recyclable PE Based Mono-material Tube with HDPE Flip-top Cap

    The new tube solutions are a packaging first: fully recyclable tube solutions whose body, shoulder and caps are composed of a single material family. Also available in screw-top formats, the new tubes are ideal for health & beauty, food and pharma packaging applications.

    In existing recycling streams, mono-material plastic packaging is exceedingly more preferable than combination plastics, as its comparable simplicity is considered fully recyclable in mechanical recycling plants and therefore a key factor in moving toward a truly circular packaging landscape.

    In addition to the new HDPE flip-top caps, Neopac also is launching a comprehensive portfolio of PE screw caps. Manufactured entirely in-house, the screw caps are available in diameters of 10-40mm.

    “Achieved in collaboration with a long-time supplier, the new HDPE flip-top caps overcome the last hurdle to fully recyclable tube packaging – namely, the ability to form functional closures from the same material as the tube body and shoulder,” said Simon Böhlen, Development Engineer for Neopac. “Health & beauty, food and pharmaceuticals brands can now assure their increasingly sustainability-conscious customers that the packaging in which their products are housed has the lowest-possible environmental impact, as we move toward a fully circular packaging economy.”

    The full PE Cap range is now commercially available for all Neopac’s PE, COEX, EcoDesign or Polyfoil Range. Starting November 2020, the recyclable fully mono-material PE Tubes with Flip-top cap will be available as stock solutions with the new printing service DigitAll360°.

    Looking ahead, Neopac is currently in the development stages of next-generation, HDPE-optimized high-performance barrier tubes (Polyfoil® MMB) with superior decoration options. Available with PE screw-top caps, the forthcoming solutions already have received excellent ratings from Institute Cyclos-HTP, a packaging recyclability certification organization.

  • Tekni-Plex introduces new Pentafil L + Fill bench-top vial filling/sealing machine

    Called the Pentafill® L + Fill, the machine now adds filling capability to the Pentafill L unit which only seals the vials. The new machine accommodates five-unit strips of 0.33-, 0.6-, 1-, 3-, 5- and 10-ml plastic (PE, LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, PP and EVOH barrier) vials. To execute a fill/seal, an operator loads the five-unit strips into a holder, which is then manually inserted into the machine. The vials are filled and sealed automatically, followed by manual removal of the holder. “Up until now, pharmaceutical companies and labs had to manually fill small-scale production vials before inserting them into the machine for sealing. This resulted in fills that were frequently imprecise and therefore not ideal for lab research or therapeutic use. To help eliminate that issue, our customers asked us to create a unit that would provide precision fills, each and every time,” said Melissa Green, global senior director marketing and strategy, Tekni-Plex Healthcare Packaging. The Pentafil L + Fill allows the user to mimic the results of a full-scale production machine via a compact, bench-top unit. The machine includes a heating head, cold-molding pliers and a sealer. It features interchangeable holders for different vial capacities and simple external controls to execute the fill/seal. The Pentafil L + Fill is available in the United States from Tekni-Plex’s LF of America business, and in Europe from its Lameplast operations. “The demand for this type of capability continues to increase as pharmaceutical manufacturers look for alternatives to expensive, hard-to-source glass vials. Additionally, new unit dose applications continue to be developed making the Pentafill L + Fill an ideal unit for lab studies and small-scale production,” said Green.
