The holistic approach

The iQ® platform offers maximized flexibility, with a versatile portfolio of containers and closure components matching a broad range of filling lines. Complexity is reduced by speeding up qualification and installation with pre-tested and standardized packaging, while patient safety is improved using the highest quality containers with reduced cosmetic defects.

Simplifying fill + finish

SCHOTT iQ® reduces the traditional filling process. Washing and siliconization machines and heat tunnels are no longer needed as the ready-to-use containers already come pre-sterilized. Standardized tub formats also allow for quick and easy changeover between different container formats, which can all be filled on a single filling line.
