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.

Gerresheimer said DropControl prevents 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.

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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
