Primary packaging material (e.g. Pharmaceutical Vials) plays a crucial role in preserving the stability, efficacy and safety of the drug as it is in direct contact with the packaged therapeutic. Additionally, primary packaging material assists in maintaining the sterility and quality of a drug product, while also providing information related to its identity and, in certain cases, dosing instructions. Moreover, given the growing complexity of modern pharmacological interventions, especially biologics, it has become imperative for drug / therapy developers to re-evaluate the various packaging considerations, taking into account the evident shift from large batches of one remedy to smaller batches of more personalized therapeutic solutions., While there are several types of primary packaging containers, including ampoules, cartridges and syringes, available in the market for packaging and storage of various types of drug formulations, vials have been a mainstay for the storage of such drug products for many years.
Despite being the most preferred packaging system, traditional vials are often associated with certain challenges, including chances of breakage under extreme conditions, absence of relevant information (serial or batch number) on the package and potential to delaminate.,  As a result, several pharmaceutical vial manufacturers are exploring novel techniques to overcome the aforementioned challenges associated with conventional pharmaceutical vials in order to create better packaging solutions.
