SCHOTT OPC ampoules have a number of benefits over the conventional ceramic colour break ampoules. Find out more about our range of Ampoules.

Benefits of OPC ampoules

  • Tighter distribution of breakforce values compared to ceramic ring ampoules
  • Significant reduction in risk of there being very hard to open ampoules
  • Reduced particle emission when opening. No more enamel flakes from ceramic breakrings can fall into the drug
  • Cleaner break aspect, reduced risk of sharp glass peaks at the opening
  • The standard now for Europe’s major pharmaceutical manufacturers
  • No modifications required for your filling and processing equipment
  • Reduced risk of accidental breakages in your production or in transit to your customers
