Drug stability and accurate drug dosage

While other container formats require glue, SCHOTT cartridges simply consist of FIOLAX® Type I glass, and so have an excellent Extractables and Leachables profile. Tight inner tolerances ensure Container Closure Integrity (CCI) of your plunger-stoppers, while a perfected shoulder shape aids accurate dosing of the medication.
