SCHOTT supports the world’s fight against COVID-19 with vials capable of holding up to 2 billion vaccination doses. The glassmaker and pharma packaging specialist has reached agreements with leading pharmaceutical companies, including partners of ‘Operation Warp Speed’ – the US government initiative to serve local vaccine production needs. The agreements become effective immediately and first vials are being delivered to companies in North America, Europe and Asia. SCHOTT is ideally positioned to meet the challenging demand situation, as it has been maintaining a global and already validated production network for decades. Even before the expansion, the company already produced more than 11 billion pharma containers for life-saving drugs per annum.さらなる情報
Switch between white light and UV illumination at the touch of a button
The new SCHOTT® VisiLED UV Ring Light for stereo microscopes combines classic bright-field illumination with UV illumination. It is the only segment ring light on the market in which white-light and UV-LEDs are alternately installed in eight segments. This LED arrangement allows objects to be examined from the same illumination angle, which significantly improves the ability to compare and reproduce resulting images. While the homogenous white light displays samples in natural color, UV excitation reveals previously invisible parts of the sample through fluorescence. The SCHOTT MC 1100 Controller (available for separate purchase) makes it easy to switch between the two illumination modes.さらなる情報
Heatan™ reduces manufacturing steps, components and space required for sensors
An innovative technology for glass-ceramic insulators can fundamentally change the production of exhaust gas sensors. Heatan are components manufactured entirely by SCHOTT. They combine a material developed specifically for this purpose with a matching production method. The result is a significant reduction in the number of parts in a typical sensor as well as the space required. What’s more, only two production steps are needed instead of 20.さらなる情報
Innovative SCHOTT ViewPort™ PAT components enable in-situ bioprocess monitoring without compromising the sterile boundary
Biopharmaceutical processes require reliable analytical methods to ensure product safety, quality and productivity. However, conventional methods depend on opening the bioreactor when extracting a sample or compromising the sterile boundary when inserting a probe, which increases the risk of contamination. With SCHOTT ViewPort™ process analytical technology (PAT) components, continuous in-situ measurement is possible without penetrating the bioreactor barrier. The metal conduit, which acts as a receptacle and optical interface for sensors or spectrometers, features a tightly sealed optical window consisting of sapphire, which enables real-time process monitoring. The components are developed and manufactured by the optical glass and glass-to-metal sealing expert SCHOTT in Germany, and are available as standard variants for multi-use bioreactors (MUB) as well as customized versions for single-use bioreactors (SUB).さらなる情報
