Advanced Pharmaceutical Solutions
SiO2 Materials Science is a company with deep roots in chemistry and engineering. The company creates engineered containers for the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology industry. These containers typically take the form of syringes, vials, and cartridges. Our patented technology applies a unique glass-like barrier onto any plastic surface. Our products are engineered to combine the durability and dimensional precision of plastic with the physical and barrier properties of glass.
- Our proprietary technology allows us to maintain CCI and industry standard glide force and breakloose without using silicone oil.
- Drugs can interact with particles, metal ions, and silicon oil, and aggregated proteins- all associated with glass and plastics. These interactions manifest in adverse events which adds tremendous risk of regulatory approval delays and even rejections; additional costs for patient management programs by the pharma company; and competitive disadvantages for the pharma company. SiO2's technology solves this problem.
- The drugs are very expensive and glass containers can break on automated lines, thereby making the products less safe. SiO2's technology solves this problem.
- Customized containers for your personalized medicines. Drug delivery systems such as auto-injectors and wearables require the precision molding of plastic containers to ensure consistent functionality. SiO2's technology solves this problem with our in house molding and automation. With more than 50 years experience developing custom molded containers for regulated industries, we are second to none.
- Biological drugs react to oxygen and degrade. Glass containers provide a barrier to oxygen that plastic does not. SiO2's technology solves this problem.
With more than 300 patents, our technology is our largest differentiator. No other company has been able to bring step change innovation to pharma packaging for more than 50 years. All our competitors claim incremental improvements (10-15%) in reducing the above-mentioned problems. We eliminate all of the problems.
