No Product is an Island

“No man is an island entire of itself,” wrote 17th century English poet, John Donne. In pharma, the same can be said of any manufacturing technology, service, or packaging innovation. If a new packaging solution does not fit with the available fill/finish equipment, for example, it will prove difficult to implement.

One way to overcome this challenge is for companies to collaborate and combine products and services, saving customers any worry about compatibility issues. This is the approach taken by West and SCHOTT. Last year, the companies announced that customers would be able to use SCHOTT’s adaptiQ ready-to-use glass vials with West’s sterile Ready Pack stoppers and seals. 

We spoke with Mike Schaefers, vice president and general manager, pharma at West, and Anil Busimi, senior global product manager at SCHOTT, about what makes a good collaboration and the trends they see emerging in 2020.

About the Author

James Strachan

Over the course of my Biomedical Sciences degree it dawned on me that my goal of becoming a scientist didn’t quite mesh with my lack of affinity for lab work. Thinking on my decision to pursue biology rather than English at age 15 – despite an aptitude for the latter – I realized that science writing was a way to combine what I loved with what I was good at.

From there I set out to gather as much freelancing experience as I could, spending 2 years developing scientific content for International Innovation, before completing an MSc in Science Communication. After gaining invaluable experience in supporting the communications efforts of CERN and IN-PART, I joined Texere – where I am focused on producing consistently engaging, cutting-edge and innovative content for our specialist audiences around the world.
