With DropControl, Gerresheimer has developed a new type of dropper insert for modern drugs with low viscosity for ophthalmology, which prevents the drug from flowing in uncontrollably during use.

“Lots of people need eye drops regularly. It is therefore important that these vials function reliably and simply to the last drop. With DropControl, it is now even easier than before,” says Niels Düring, global executive vice president at Gerresheimer Plastic Packaging.

DropControl is designed to prevent uncontrolled drops from flowing out of the bottle during dosing. The outer part of the pipette has only been changed slightly for this, while the inner part has been given an insert connected to the outer part. It is suitable for all bottles and closures of the Gerresheimer A, C, E, and F dropper bottle systems.

Conjunctivitis and stye are particularly widespread among eye diseases. In most cases, they are harmless. After an ophthalmologist has diagnosed the disease and started appropriate therapy with eye drops or ointments, the symptoms quickly subside, it is always advisable to see an ophthalmologist who will prescribe the correct eye drops.

Dropper bottles for all common volumes

DropControl is produced for the various dropper bottle types A, C, E, and F by Gerresheimer under cleanroom conditions in sizes of 5, 10, 15, and 30 ml. The bottle and the dropper are made of LDPE, the cap of HDPE.

Gerresheimer takes over the irradiation with gamma rays

As an extended service, after the vials’ production, Gerresheimer also offers irradiation with gamma rays by selected and specialized partner companies on request.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
