  • Patent number: 10441505
    Abstract: The present invention is based, at least in part, on the identification of a pharmaceutical container formed, at least in part, of a glass composition which exhibits a reduced propensity to delaminate, i.e., a reduced propensity to shed glass particulates. As a result, the presently claimed containers are particularly suited for storage of pharmaceutical compositions and, specifically, a pharmaceutical solution comprising a pharmaceutically active ingredient, for example, LEVEMIR, NOVOLOG, NOVOLIN 70-30, NOVOLIN R, NOVOLIN N, NOVOLOG MIX 70-30 and NOVOLIN L.

  • Patent number: 10350139
    Abstract: A sterile glass pharmaceutical container or vessel such as, but not limited to, vials for holding pharmaceutical products or vaccines in a hermetic and/or sterile state. The sterile glass pharmaceutical container undergoes a strengthening process that produces compression at the surface and tension within the container wall. The strengthening process is designed such that the tension within the wall is great enough to ensure catastrophic failure of the pharmaceutical container, thus rendering the product unusable, should sterility be compromised by a through-wall crack. The tension is greater than a threshold central tension, above which catastrophic failure of the pharmaceutical container is guaranteed, thus eliminating any potential for violation of pharmaceutical integrity or sterility (such as stable cracks) in the glass packaging which are not easily identifiable in an otherwise seemingly intact pharmaceutical container.

  • Publication number: 20190169063
    Abstract: A method for severing a glass sheet includes preferentially heating a region of the glass sheet to form a softened region. A slit is formed in the softened region of the glass sheet to form a slit region. The slit extends at least partially into a thickness of the glass sheet. Heat is preferentially applied to the slit region of the glass sheet.
