Molecule to Market – Simplify the Journey™ for New Drug Products

As of 2018, over 4,000 new injectable drug products are in development world wide – a great many of these in small settings such as universities, medical research institutes, and small companies.  These efforts need the ready availability of high quality, sterile packaging products in small volumes for developmental and clinical phases.

Ready Pack System

West, being committed to the safe and efficient delivery of drug products to patients, is focused on meeting this need – with Ready Pack® stoppers and seals, and EZ-fill® vials. These readily-available products are provided in small volumes and ready-to-use (washed and sterilized ). The global market is steering toward ISO vials, based upon tolerances and dimensional consistencies across sizes specified in ISO 8362-1:2009 (Injection containers and accessories -- Part 1: Injection vials made of glass tubing).

EZ-fill vials are a great solution for those in new development looking for ISO standard vials. As development progresses through to commercialization, Ready Pack and EZ-fill components are available on larger scales – providing seamless packaging support from the molecule to the market. For more on how West can provide support, please contact an Account Manager or Technical Account Specialist.
