No Product is an Island
Will West and SCHOTT’s collaboration pave the way for more vendor-to-vendor partnerships?
James Strachan | | Interview
“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.
