How to gain speed to the market with a multi-sourcing approach

The pharmaceutical industry is experiencing a shift from blockbusters to biological drugs for more personalized treatments. This trend results in a need for pharmaceutical companies to manufacture smaller batches and handle multiple products in different packaging presentations on the same filling line, driving the adoption of Ready-To-Use (RTU) primary packaging formats. Although the technology of combi-lines and RTU is well established in the market, there are still only few options for primary packaging available.

To ensure manufacturing readiness, a key aspect pharma companies have to take into account when selecting the technology is the possibility of multiple sourcing along their supply chain. Flexibility, quality and low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) are key parameters when selecting packaging partners for fill & finish operations.

This webinar demonstrates how the partnership between Stevanato Group and SGD Pharma on RTU molded glass vials supports companies needing to switch manufacturing process from bulk to EZ-fill®.
