We provide an aggressive delamination test protocol to encourage surface changes and make a direct comparison between different glass manufacturing processes, glass formulations, batch variations and post-forming processing and treatment conditions.

Our delamination glass screening assesses the risk of glass vials, containers and packaging delaminating during their life cycle under in-use conditions.

This enables you to

  • Evaluate glass packaging and containers from different vendors/glass formulations/post-formation treatments
  • Identify lot-lot variation from individual vendors
  • Predict the surface durability of the glass

Delamination screening leadership and expertise

Our experts have a wealth of experience in assisting the pharmaceutical industry with their glass packaging requirements

We have developed a range of technical service packages that conform to USP 1660 to help our customers assess any potential risk. These come alongside our other accredited in-depth analytical services.
