SCHOTT is the innovative and reliable one-stop-partner for the pharmaceutical industry. We set standards in glass tubing and primary packaging made of glass and polymer, while working together with our industry network of customers and partners to deliver premium quality products to patients.
Pharmaceutical Tubing

SCHOTT’s extensive product line of high-quality Type I borosilicate glass, as well as Type III soda-lime glass tubing, has been designed to preserve active pharmaceutical ingredients to ensure their effectiveness. FIOLAX® is the premium standard for the production of syringes, cartridges, vials and ampoules.

Glass Primary Packaging

SCHOTT designs glass primary packaging solutions tailored to the user's needs. The core of our expertise comprises a large range of pharmaceutical containers made from tubular borosilicate glass. The product portfolio includes syringes, vials, cartridges and ampoules, which are safe and easy to use for people around the world.

SCHOTT iQ® – The Global RTU Standard

With our patented SCHOTT iQ® RTU platform, SCHOTT sets new standards for flexible Fill & Finish processes. Our holistic approach to standardizing the industry's trusted nest-and-tub format for ready-to-use syringes, vials and cartridges increases machinability and creates a cost advantage for our customers along the entire value chain.

SCHOTT TOPPAC® – The Polymer Design Platform

With SCHOTT, pharmaceutical companies benefit from our long experience in the field of polymer containers, regulatory support, a global footprint as well as joint developments. Cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) as a material offers a high-quality alternative to glass for long-term drug storage. As well as being break-resistant, lightweight and transparent, its flexibility enables a variety of designs.

Pharma Consulting

SCHOTT’s experience in the development of pharmaceutical products enable us to offer specialized analytics and bespoke packaging solutions. Our expertise in fractographic investigations means we can minimize common issues such as glass breakage, while we can also conduct Extractables and Leachables studies based on your needs. Other analytical techniques such as container closure integrity are often requested by customers to ensure their containers systems work exactly as they require.


Cell cultivation and fermentation processes in biopharmaceutical production bioreactors require optimal and reliably sterile conditions. While existing sampling methods require opening of the bioreactor, revolutionary SCHOTT ViewPort™ components enable in-situ bioprocess monitoring that does not compromise the sterile boundary. They act as sterile optical interfaces and receptacles for sensors and spectroscopy systems. This helps enable reduced contamination risk and higher process yield.
