The search for a vaccine against the novel SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus is currently in full swing – and every day hundreds of thousands of people are vaccinated against other infectious agents. The challenge for the pharmaceutical industry is not only to manufacture vaccines and sera, but also to deliver them securely and undamaged to destinations throughout the world. Faller Packaging offers effective solutions for this purpose.
Numerous pharmaceutical companies are currently racing to develop a vaccine against COVID-19. It is still uncertain when they will achieve their goal, but when the time comes, the vaccine will have to be securely packaged for transport. Vaccines are frequently contained in vials made of special glass. During storage and transport they must be well protected against breaking and damage.
For this purpose, multi-component packaging made of cardboard is used which means folding cartons containing several vials with the vaccines. Perfectly fitting inlays ensure that the product components are held securely in place and are easy to remove. The units can be stored in a small space and stacked without trouble for optimum storage. Cardboard packages are also temperature-resistant and recyclable. In addition, they can be printed on the inside with information for doctors, pharmacists and patients depending on their individual requirements.
Faller Packaging supports vaccine manufacturers with customised single and multiple packaging solutions that are optimised for the transport of delicate vials. Headquartered in Waldkirch in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, the company has specialised in pharmaceutical packaging for more than 30 years.
