CPhl Jakarta: SCHOTT to showcase top packaging solutions for the growing pharmaceutical markets in Southeast Asia

Jakarta/Indonesia, March 11, 2013 – SCHOTT Pharmaceutical Packaging will be exhibiting at CPhI 2013 Southeast Asia as an expert on high-quality pharmaceutical packaging. CPhl is a pharmaceutical ingredients exhibition that will be held from March 20 – 22, 2013, at the Jakarta International Expo. SCHOTT’s booth M12 in hall A will feature the company’s wide range of ampoules and vials. In addition, the international technology group will also be presenting innovative versions of its cartridges and prefillable syringes.

“SCHOTT considers CPhl Southeast Asia to be an important trade exhibition and an excellent platform for presenting its solutions, expertise and products in the area of pharmaceutical packaging,” says Gunawan Setokusumo, Regional Sales Director for Asia. “In anticipation of the growing demand for pharmaceutical products in Indonesia, we are currently expanding our local production capacity significantly. For us the CPhI is the perfect venue to discuss market trends and to present our wide range of products. Together with our customers we want to support the Indonesian pharmaceutical market to continue its growth,” he adds.

SCHOTT has been manufacturing ampoules, vials and pipettes for the pharmaceutical industry in Indonesia for 15 years. In fact, the company operates the largest plant for pharmaceutical primary packaging in Southeast Asia in Bekasi. The plant is also known for how it strictly follows the “Good Manufacturing Practice” (GMP) guidelines and the fact that it has been certified based on all of the relevant ISO standards such as ISO 15378. Due to the local production SCHOTT’s customers in Indonesia benefit from reliable lead times, excellent customer service and technical support provided in the region.

SCHOTT product highlights at CPhl South East Asia 2013 With Type I plus®, SCHOTT introduced a set of delamination-resistant vials for the first time ever. SCHOTT Type I plus® vials are particularly well-suited for pharmaceutical products that are incapable of being stored in conventional Type I glass. These include biopharmaceutical proteins, for example, which tend to show denaturation or formulations that interact with their containers. SCHOTT Type I plus® features a coating on the inside that is covalently bonded with the glass matrix and drastically reduces interactions between the glass surface and the respective medication. This translates into greater security and higher stability for medications. The vials with their outstanding barrier properties can be subjected to all types of normal pharmaceutical procedures, including washing, autoclaving, sterilization or depyrogenation.
