West, Stevanato Group Enter Ompi EZ-fill Alliance


West will distribute Ompi EZ-fill vials in North America

Stevanato Group, through Ompi, its specialist in glass primary packaging for the pharmaceutical industry, has entered a collaboration with West Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a provider of solutions for injectable drug containment and delivery, in which West will distribute Ompi EZ-fill vials in North America.
Ompi EZ-fill vials are sterile, depyrogenated and ready-to-fill glass containers for pharmaceutical use. The product complements West Ready Pack, a-ready-to-use, sterile vial containment system. The West Ready Pack system comprises high-quality injectable packaging components, including NovaPure stoppers and Flip-Off seals.

Ready Pack components are provided ready to use and sterile and are available for order from stock in low minimum order quantities, making them well-suited to R&D and other small-scale filling operations, according to the company.
Andrea Zambon, marketing director, Pharmaceutical Systems Division at Stevanato Group, said, "With EZ-fill process technology, Ompi enjoys a unique market positioning in the ready-to-use glass primary packaging market. After becoming a platform being adopted by most of the glass components manufacturers, the agreement with West represents another milestone in EZ-fill’s growth. EZ-fill® is the ideal ready-to-use glass container for the small biotechs, R&D Labs as well as large-scale filling lines.”
