Why Ampoule Filling?

Ampoules contain and protect small samples of a product. They are ideal for single-use applications, and for ensuring protection from the environment. The reason our ampoules are made from glass instead of plastic is that glass is impervious to gases and other contaminants.

Suppliers and clients alike can benefit from using glass ampoules, with:

  • Compatibility with a wide range of non-flammable liquids, including those sensitive to environmental exposure
  • Hermetic, airtight sealing that protects chemicals against airborne contaminants for a cleaner, safer, and longer preservation of the product
  • Efficient transportation and disposing process
  • Ampoules of more sensitive products can be nitrogen-purged to retain the highest quality

Uses of Glass Vials

Widespread manufacturing of glass vials provides the perfect packaging solution for businesses requiring single-use products. Their size, portability, and ease of use mean that ampoules have a wide range of uses. They can be used:

  • For holding and preserving product samples
  • As part of a product test kit
  • As training materials in healthcare
  • To hold air sensitive reagents
  • To contain particularly hazardous liquids
  • For standard reference materials

Our ampoules are often used in medical training. This is because a disposable vial is an efficient and accurate way to train students to prepare, calculate, and administer drugs. ReAgent manufactures glass ampoules to medical training programmes across the UK.
