Stopper Processing and Packaging at Point of Manufacture

While a proportion of closures (stoppers, plungers, seals) for drug delivery containers (vials, syringes etc) are cleaned and sterilized at point of use (during the fill-finish operation), the majority are delivered to the drug manufacturer as “Ready to Sterilize” or “Ready to Use”. Such closures must therefore be processed and packaged at point of manufacture, in bulk. Steelco (including the ICOS brand) has a long history of providing cleaning / siliconising / sterilizing equipment to major stopper manufacturers and bulk users.
