Schott Pharmaceutical Systems US sales and marketing vice-president Christopher Cassidy said: "Packaging is a critical cog in pharmaceutical delivery, and recent regulatory papers highlight the importance of high-quality processing and manufacturing of packaging.

"SCHOTT’s centre of excellence in Lebanon is the manifestation of the relationship we have with our partners, and our collaborative efforts create safe, reliable, and easy-to-use packaging products."

The centre was launched at an event in which experts from pharmaceutical industry highlighted how speciality drugs are supporting medical growth in developing countries, and the self-administered drug market is expected to grow by 100% within next five years.

To ensure safety of packaging, pharmaceutical manufacturers are focusing on RTU packaging as it can allow for particle-free drug filling, filling different container formats on the same filling line, and also turn processing of smaller batch sizes cost-effective.
