Best practices for impact measurement in pharmaceutical glass handling

Understanding the properties of glass and the ability to measure strength (impact resistance) is essential to safe handling protocols that promote efficiency, drug container performance and ultimately, lower risk of failure.

Applying in-line impact testing to optimize pharmaceutical packaging processes

As recently as 2014 and 2015, pharmaceutical publications were lamenting the lack of reliable, non-destructive in-line testing methods for Fill and Finish packaging processes relative to glass vials. The advent of in-line testing is changing how pharmaceutical companies can optimize packaging processes and container designs; enabled by an improved understanding of mechanical loads like impact, pressure and vertical force.

Why in-line testing is vital for Fill and Finish (F&F) processes in pharmaceutical packaging.

According to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration information search, an estimated 20 billion glass vials for injectable drugs are processed annually.
