QuickStart™ Injectables, which was showcased at the Innovation Gallery at Pharmapack this year, is a sterile, Ready-To-Use (RTU) drug development offering designed specifically to accelerate the development time for start-ups and early stage development, R&D, biotechs and university research organizations.

Launched at CPhI Worldwide in Madrid in October 2018, this highly-innovative injectable development package comes with gamma-sterilized stoppers and push-off caps from Aptar Pharma and EMA Pharmaceuticals respectively, and ETO sterilized vials from Schott, providing a one-stop solution allowing developers to focus on their science and chemistry.

It also includes all of the quality and technical documentation required to verify the sterilization and compatibility (CCI) of components to proactively address regulators’ needs and accelerate approval.
