Secondary Seals for Injectable Drug Vials
Identifying effective and innovative delivery systems and components for injectable drugs – whether a serum,
lyophilised or dry powder drug – is a challenge for
pharmaceutical packaging engineers. Selecting an
appropriate secondary seal is just as critical to product
success as selecting an appropriate vial and stopper. Endusers of drug products also need increasing assurance that the product has not been tampered with, and that it was made by the original drug manufacturing company.
