Filled vials are among the most common ways of manufacturing and delivering injection medicines and medical products.

A vial can most easily be described as a small bottle. Injection vials are sealed with a stopper and a cap, in order to maintain product sterility.

Depending on the product to be filled and the purpose of it, various materials can be used for the vial, the stopper and the cap. During product development, each product is the subject of a study where we select a suitable combination of vial and stopper in different materials. In some cases, the vial and stopper materials are changed between the different steps in a clinical study, or ahead of commercial manufacture.


The life science industry and healthcare mostly use injection vials made from glass and sealed with rubber stoppers and aluminium caps. We buy all our packaging materials from approved suppliers. If the packaging material best suited to your product is not part of our standard range, we can procure and test it for manufacture in our sterile GMP unit.

We can fill a product in injection vials of various sizes, under either sterile or aseptic conditions. Temperature-sensitive products are always filled aseptically.
