Stevanato Group, through Ompi, its specialist in glass primary packaging for the pharmaceutical industry, and Bormioli Pharma recently announced a collaboration agreement that will enable biopharma customers, contract filling organizations, and research laboratories to receive Bormioli Pharma’s proprietary primary containers in Ompi’s industry-recognized EZ-fill secondary packaging configuration.

Bormioli Pharma glass vials supplied in Ompi’s packaging configurations can be processed into existing fill-finish lines.
