Pharmaceutical Vials

SCHOTT vials provide the secure storage of drugs thanks to their high chemical resistance, which limits interactions between product and container. Our vials are effective for low-fill applications and cost-competitive fill + finish, and are ideal for sensitive drugs such as complex proteins and vaccines.

Differentiated quality levels

Exceptionally strong and impermeable, SCHOTT vials are designed to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical industry by offering different quality levels in a range of dimensions and cosmetic options. Their first-class chemical resistance and extractables and leachables profile prevent the glass interacting with its contents, so preserving the medical effectiveness of the stored drugs.

Customizing features

SCHOTT vials can be enhanced with special features to create containers that match highly specific filling processes and drug formulations in all forms. The powerful chemical resistance of our vials also means they are extremely effective in storing biotech drugs, which are particularly vulnerable to degradation, such as protein denaturation or aggregation.
