Clear plastic vials – COC/COP
Transparent, lightweight and with good impact strength, ClearVial is a breakthrough in primary packaging solutions for the pharmaceutical and biotec industries. ClearVials is available in COC (Cyclic Olefin Copolymer) vial or COP (Cyclic Olefin Polymer) that replaces glass to deliver a very cost-effective and reliable solution for a wide range of medical products.
With the introduction of ClearVial, lack of transparency is no longer an issue with clear plastic vials. Made from an ultra-pure amorphous polymer traditionally used in optics, COC or COP are a perfectly transparent material allowing for visual particle inspection at the filling line and before injection.
ClearVials are manufactured and packed in clean room facilities Class 10,000 (C) and the transformation processes of the COC/COP material are so clean that the vials are ready for use directly in the filling line, cutting out the need for prewash and drying. COC/COP can be irradiated and also resists a 121°C autoclaving.
The dimensions of ClearVial follow ISO standard 8362 and are identical in design to glass vials. It therefore requires no extra investment and is easy to implement in existing production lines.
