The curved glass facade of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie looks like a massive wave floating 110 meters (360 feet) above the Elbe River. However, glass, a highly convertible material, has not only left a lasting impression on passers-by admiring the concert hall’s fascinating exterior architecture. Inside, the semi-transparent MIRONA® glass from SCHOTT brings out surprising reactions: at first, it appears to be a mirror before it magically transforms into an information display. When the display is switched on, the interference layers from the light beams allow images magically to be projected on the display screen.
Rethinking pharma packaging
Biologic and sensitive drugs are highly viscous and prone to interact with their environment due to their complex molecule structure. syriQ BioPure® syringes are designed to keep sensitive drugs stable over shelf life and ease the administration process. A uniform silicone layer ensures consistent gliding performance while the use of high-end materials further minimize the possible interaction between the drug and the container. The syringes are made of FIOLAX® borosilicate glass and are available in over 48 pre-validated configurations.
