October 30, 2014, Millville, NJ – WHEATON today highlighted several product lines designed to address specific needs of pharmaceutical industry customers that will be featured at the 2014 AAPS Annual Meeting. They include WHEATON’s High Recovery Vials, which are uniquely designed to reduce waste and enable easy retrieval of high value liquids without the need to overfill. The company is also highlighting its new line of DURAN PURE glass containers, which are validation ready and notable for their highly consistent, technically reproducible and extremely durable properties. WHEATON is now the exclusive U.S. distributor of DURAN PURE products.
 
“The exceptional quality and Purpose-Built features are what distinguish our products and make them especially suitable for pharmaceutical applications. Pharma’s demanding specifications, stringent regulatory requirements, costly ingredients and ever-increasing demands for efficiency are where our Purpose-Built products shine,” noted Wayne L. Brinster, CEO and President of WHEATON.
 
Mr. Brinster continued, “Two product lines that exemplify Purpose-Built are being featured at AAPS 2014. Our patented High Recovery Vials feature a unique design that makes it easy to reduce the costly waste from near-irretrievable contents by up to 99%. WHEATON is also now the exclusive U.S. distributor for DURAN ultra-pure glassware, and we are proud to offer these containers with exceptional performance for demanding applications such as biopharmaceutical manufacturing. The online availability of complete documentation packages for our DURAN products, which serve a highly regulated sector, reflects our commitment to providing comprehensive product solutions to increase our customers’ efficiency and effectiveness.”
 
DURAN PURE Process Biologic Bottle System is especially suitable for heavily-regulated biologic investigational agents. Both the bottles and their fluoropolymer screw caps are constructed of highly inert materials, they are very resistant to gases and other contaminants and are designed and manufactured for pharmacopeia compliance. WHEATON’s DURAN PURE system includes a USP compliant range of bottle sizes scalable from pilot to production volumes and features complete traceability and comprehensive qualification support that meets the requirements of national and international regulatory agencies, with comprehensive, easy-to-access online validation document packages and support services.
 
WHEATON’s line of High Recovery Vials feature a revolutionary interior bottom design that provides greater ease of handling, increased product recovery and improved storage capacity. They are designed for manual or automated handling and storage, and are especially useful for high value contents, reducing product waste by up to 99% and enabling full retrieval without the need to overfill. WHEATON’s High Recovery Vials are also more economical than other high recovery options.
