Ompi EZ-Fill Becomes an Internationally Recognized Standard Platform for RTU Sterile Containers
Ompi, the company
within Stevanato Group specialized in glass primary packaging for the pharmaceutical
industry, has signed a license agreement with Gerresheimer. The agreement
reaffirms Ompi EZ-fill solution as the worldwide proven standard in processing
sterile glass vials and cartridges.
After the launch of
Ompi EZ-fill Vials & Cartridges in 2007, Ompi was the first one in the
market to provide a full range of RTU product portfolio. Through Ompi EZ-fill
process technology, ready-to-use containers are washed, sterilized, and
provided in trays or in nests and tubs. Ompi EZ-fill is the ideal solution
either with small batches, initially at the clinical trials stage, or with
industrial production. Over the years, the technology has proven unique
advantages. Pharmaceutical customers and biotech companies can benefit from an
easy, flexible, and streamlined process as they can immediately fill the
ready-to-use vials, ultimately reducing their total cost of ownership.
“In 2016, SGD Pharma
joined the platform, marking a first step in the definition of Ompi EZ-fill as
a standard,” said Andrea Zambon,
Marketing Director – Pharmaceutical Systems Division at Stevanato Group.
“The recent agreement with Gerresheimer witnesses the strength of this
technology, which can be further expanded to other glass primary packaging

market positioning in the sterile glass primary packaging market. In addition
to EZ-fill process technology, it offers a comprehensive service solution,
including consultancy on fill-finish machines and analytical and regulatory
