Our ampoules, double tipped for success since 1954

In direct contact with the active ingredient, this primary glass packaging is a premium, non-toxic and 100% ecological solution. Glass, a noble and non-polluting material, is infinitely recyclable. Borosilicate glass, supplied by the German group Schott, world leader in pharmaceutical glass, offers very high resistance to high temperatures and to most chemicals.

The double-tip ampoule, perfectly hermetic, guarantees a very competitive filling cost thanks to a vacuum suction process invented by SFAM allowing up to 500 ampoules to be filled simultaneously.

On average,
37,800 glass ampoules
filled per hour*
*Based on 75 plastic boxes of 504 ampoules of 2ml per hour
Ampoules double pointe

This type of glass containers is also autoclavable which allows sterilization after filling and sealing.
