In this article, Steven Kaufman, Vice-President Drug Delivery Systems, and Adam Stops, PhD, Drug Delivery System Product Manager, both of Stevanato Group, describe how an integrated offering can help customers at each phase of a drug delivery system project.
For more than 70 years, Stevanato Group has been renowned as a leading provider of primary packaging, producing cartridges, syringes and vials to the highest technological standards. The SG Fina, SG Nexa and SG Alba product lines are part of a wide range of glass solutions that embody Stevanato Group’s long history of quality and reliability.
Today, as a full-service partner, Stevanato Group provides a suite of products, technologies and services for pharmaceutical companies. Customers can source their glass primary packaging, assess their formulation stability through analytical testing services, select one of the many proprietary drug delivery devices or even develop a new breakthrough device, and have their combination product manufactured to the highest standard using state-of-the-art injection moulding and automated assembly equipment with integrated inspection technologies. As a result of this comprehensive offering, Stevanato Group has established itself as a partner of choice within the industry.
A crucial aspect of Stevanato Group’s business model is that customers can access these products, technologies and services independently. This flexibility enables clients who may be partnering with multiple suppliers to engage with Stevanato Group for any phase of their project and benefit from the resources, expertise and knowledge that the group offers within that discipline (Table 1).
However, as more and more primary containers are integrated into drug delivery devices, Stevanato Group’s wide range of capabilities provides an advantage for building end-to-end solutions for pen injector, autoinjector, wearable and inhaler projects. By forging deeper partnerships with customers, the full depth and breadth of Stevanato Group’s knowledge, experience and competencies can bring benefits to a project at multiple levels.
