PE is the most common term for polyethylene. It is a plastic material that tolerates irradiation (gamma and e-beam), which means that the packaging is suitable for aseptic filling – ready to use. However, the formulation always determines the type of packaging. A plastic vial made of high-density polyethylene plastic is not suitable for autoclaving.
For production of vials in PE plastic we only use high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE). It is made from medical grade virgin-material and meets all regulations cf. European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.) and US Pharmacopoeia (USP). In addition, a DMF is available on the material.
All HDPE vials are packed in our clean room ISO class 7 / EU-GMP class C. This room is established according to the EU-directives 91/356 EØF and 91/412 EØF and meet all current guidelines.
The air of the clean room is automatically controlled and the monitoring and alarm system functions 24 hours a day, enabling immediate intervention if disruptions arise.
Bacteriological control and control of particles are performed regularly by an external company to ensure that the system works.
