Glass tubing made from SCHOTT’s borosilicate glass meets the high-quality requirements of the pharmaceutical industry and is the gold standard for safely storing pharmaceutical drugs. "During production, the quality of every piece of tubing is thoroughly c using state-of-the-art inspection technology and all data is recorded in detail. As a result, only perfect tubing will leave the factory," said CEO Dr. Heinricht during the event.
FIOLAX® glass tubing is highly chemically resistant, maintaining drug stability as it prevents interactions between the glass and the medication. Containment solutions made of pharmaceutical tubing from SCHOTT play an important role for vital vaccines and medications. These include, for example, mRNA drugs that can be used to treat individual types of cancer.
The pharmaceutical glass manufacturing facility in Mainz is part of a global SCHOTT production network. This includes the Mitterteich site in Bavaria, Germany and factories in India, China and Brazil. In recent years, the company has significantly expanded its production capacities for pharmaceutical tubing in Asia by commissioning additional tanks in India and a brand new plant in China.
