Protect Life-Saving Pharmaceuticals with Fluorinated Resin Coatings for Glass Packaging

The COVID-19 pandemic brought public attention to the complex pharmaceutical supply chain—product development, production and distribution. Playing an important role in the worldwide vaccination effort are the glass vials that contain the billions of doses needed for global distribution. To get the vaccine to the public, it is first produced in bulk, then transferred to…

Meeting the Challenges of Manufacturing Fluorochemical-Based APIs

Producing fluorinated molecules for large-scale production of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) is a highly specialized field. Incorporating fluorine into APIs can change key characteristics of the molecule, such as its metabolic stability, ability to dissolve in fats and other nonpolar solvents, capacity to bind to protein, as well as its acidity and basicity. These changes…
