Ready to Use Pharmaceutical Packaging: Trends and Opportunities

The ready to use of pharmaceutical primary packaging has emerged as a promising alternative to conventional primary packaging, adding significant value to streamline pharmaceutical fill / finish operations. These packaging components eliminate multiple steps in the overall fill finish manufacturing (mainly washing, sterilizing and preparing containers), thereby, helping improve operational efficiencies in compliance to existing  regulatory standards. Owing to several other benefits offered by medical polymers, RTU container-closure systems have gradually gained popularity in the pharmaceutical industry.
