Gerresheimer launches new Clinical Trial Kit
It can be ordered in six different configurations of Gx RTF Glass Vials
Gerresheimer has launched its new Clinical Trial Kit at Pharmapack in Paris. This kit consists of sterile Gx RTF vials in a nest and tub or tray with matching closures and is tailored to requirements to support the development of new drugs, vaccines and biologics in early phases. The Clinical Trial Kit is suitable for small-batch manufacturing from first-line trials to validation and clinical batches. It can be ordered in six different configurations of Gx RTF Glass Vials. Kits including Gx Elite and Gx RTF COP vials will follow soon.
“There are currently more than 3,000 injectable drug programs in pre-clinical and clinical phases. With our clinical trial kits and supportive services, we want to proactively support our customers by providing them with first-class primary packaging solutions,” said Jean-Edouard Rabier, Sales Development Manager and Director of Project Management/Pharmaceutical Services and member of the Gx Biological Solutions Team.
The Gerresheimer Clinical Trial Kit simplifies the clinical development of drugs by offering pre-tested and validated solutions that are readily usable for small batch sizes to replace commercial production. The major advantage of this concept is that companies can benefit from the exact same performance of the containers during commercialisation as during research and development. This helps to shorten time to market and bring life-saving drugs to patients faster.
The kit provides a complete set of primary packaging containers and containment solutions, especially selected for high-value drugs and/or the most complex and demanding drugs. The Clinical Trial Kit complies with GMP requirements for the production of clinical batches. It is currently offered in six different configurations with nest and tub or tray for filling volumes 2R RTF, 6R RTF and 10R RTF. Customers may receive a tailored kit made from a range of stopper and closure options selected using expert advice. Each kit offers tried-and-tested product features, such as the integrity of the container system.
