Stopper / closure processing solutions

Clean, sterile and dry closures, particularly rubber stoppers and plungers, are vital components of parenteral packaging. Getinge offers comprehensive systems for closure processing.

As closures are in product contact for considerable periods – and are a functional part of drug administration systems – it is absolutely essential that they are clean and sterile, with due consideration given to their physical, mechanical and chemical properties.

Before use they must generally also be quantifiably dry, especially when the drug product is lyophilized. And from a practical point of view, they must also be delivered to the filling apparatus while maintaining their clean, sterile and dry condition.

Getinge offers solutions for cleaning (siliconizing), sterilizing, drying, and delivery of all types of closures for both barrier-isolated and conventional filling equipment.

We can assist you in the choice of the most suitable method for your project needs. We can also provide testing services to develop suitable processes and demonstrate process performance.
