Gx MultiShell

Plastic Vials for Parenteral Drugs

Gerresheimer AG, Düsseldorf, Germany, has invested many years in developing and producing its plastic MultiShell vials in order to offer its customers primary packaging solutions that are ideal for sensitive active substances. The Gx MultiShell vial provides shatter-resistant packaging and improved barrier protection for the kind of powerful active ingredients that are being developed nowadays.

With its innovative multilayer structure made from cyclo-olefin polymer (COP) and polyamide (PA), this transparent vial is a unique packaging solution that meets all these requirements. Gerresheimer offers vials holding 2, 5, 10, 15, 50, and 100 ml, which are also available as ready-to-use versions including validated gamma sterilization. Gerresheimer supplies both COP multilayer and monolayer containers.

The vials are available with a single-layer structure based on COP or an unique triple-layer structure consisting of a layer of polyamide sandwiched between two COP layers and unique barrier properties that enhance the drug stability over shelf life. The extraordinary puncture-resistance of the multilayer structure prevents the liquid leaking and predestines the vials as packaging of cytotoxic drug solutions.

Gerresheimer operates with the world’s latest technologies and monitoring processes from the development stage right through to production and packing for delivery. The company uses cutting-edge cleanroom technology to guarantee optimum cleanliness for its products in terms of particles and germs.
