Vacuum Ensures Safe Storage of Corona Vaccine

Maulburg, Germany Vaccination is currently a major topic worldwide. Only widespread vaccination against COVID-19 seems to make a return to normal life possible. Production of the vaccine is therefore running at full speed. The liquid vaccine is filled into small glass bottles. These are produced with the help of vacuum.

To guarantee the full effectiveness of the vaccine, the choice of the right glass container is crucial. Only borosilicate glass has all the necessary characteristics. This special glass is highly resistant to chemicals and particularly to external heat, which is crucial for storing the vaccine. The glass expands only slightly due to external temperature changes, and the vaccine inside the glass bottles thus remains optimally protected and durable.

Vacuum technology from Busch Vacuum Solutions is used to manufacture the glass bottles. During the melting process, it helps to extract the air trapped in the liquid glass mass. This ensures optimum product quality without inclusions. And during the forming process of the glass mass itself, vacuum also plays a key role for the stability and uniform appearance of the bottles. Thanks to vacuum from Busch, the glass bottles have the optimum characteristics for keeping the Corona vaccine safe until it is injected.
