West Pharmaceutical Services announces the expansion of its landmark collaboration with Corning Incorporated including the exclusive distribution rights for Corning Valour® Glass vials and the launch of its first product, West Ready Pack™ with Corning Valour® RTU Vials utilising SG EZ-fill® technology.

West agreement with Corning includes a multimillion-dollar investment to expand Corning's Valour® Glass technology with the goal of advancing patient safety and expanding access to life-saving treatments. This strategic collaboration offers leading elastomer-glass system solutions for containment and delivery of injectable medicines. Together, West and Corning plan to build the next generation of integrated packaging and delivery system solutions.

The West Ready Pack™ with Corning Valour® RTU Vials combines West's highest quality NovaPure® stoppers, Flip-Off® CCS (Clean, Certified, Sterilised) seals and Corning's best-in-class Valour® RTU Vials with SG EZ-fill® technology into a complete containment solution to help bring parenteral drugs and diagnostics to market.

The Ready Pack™ combination of NovaPure® stoppers, Flip-Off® CCS seals, and Valour® RTU Vials with SG EZ-fill® technology provides the following benefits to drug developers:

•    Proven Container Closure Integrity (CCI) including the ability to maintain cold storage CCI when cooled to and stored at -80°C;
•    Sterile ready-to-use format that can be directly introduced into filling operations, eliminating the need for component preparation;
•    Premium components with the tightest particulate specifications in West's offering; and
•    Availability in quantities suitable for small-scale filling operations with continuity to quantity options for large-scale commercial operations.

By incorporating Valour® Glass technology with West Ready Pack™, enables drug developers an integrated, industry leading packaging solution to provide the ultimate protection for the molecules, from manufacturing through patient administration.
