Custom-made glass products

CHROMA GLOBE produces high-quality laboratory and pharmaceutical packaging made of tubular glass and sells them worldwide. In addition to our own machines, firmly booked machine capacities at two other glass manufacturers provide the necessary production flexibility to be able to react quickly to unexpected demand.

At our production sites (100% Made in Germany) we manufacture glass products in small or large series. We generally divide into the following glass product groups:

Sample bottles and vials

Lockable independently, can stand independently

Micro Vials

Can be locked independently, old versions often require adapters in the autosampler. Modern microvials can stand on their own

Micro-Inserts

Can not be locked independently; must therefore always be used in a vial
The design of our glass products can meanwhile be varied. Based on the distinctive features below, we would like to illustrate the variations of our standard products:

Design of the Neck

DIN Crimp Neck

Headspace Crimp Neck

Fire-Polished Neck

SPME Crimp Neck

Snap Ring Neck

Snap Cap Neck

Short Thread Neck ND9

Calibrated Neck

Precision Thread ND18

Screw Thread ND8, ND10

Screw Thread ND13, ND15

Screw Thread ND24

Design of the Vial Bottom

flat bottom

rounded bottom (HS-bottom)

round bottom

conical bottom

Solid glass bottom of a Microliter Vial with inner cone (High recovery)

Conical bottom (Maximum recovery Vial)

Dimensions

  • Bottle body diameter (5mm – 42mm)
  • Size of the bottle opening
  • bottle height (up to 500mm)

Other specifications

  • Glass material (clear/amber glass; 1st hydrolytic. Class)
  • Bottle opening size (narrow-wide opening)
  • With and without text field + filler mark
  • Silanized (deactivated), special printing (logos)
Of course, we also realize special designs based on individual customer requests concerning the above features. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • A PP lid enables the user to close the packaging again during use
  • The PP-Box has a high chemical resistance to a wide range of acids, solvents, oils and fats
  • No contamination of the vials by material particles of the packaging, because PP has a high abrasion resistance
  • A schematic drawing on the front of the PP boxes enables the contents to identify without opening the box
  • 100% traceability function due to batch numbers on every PP Box
  • Absolutely neutral packaging that enables individual resale

2in1 KITs (Convenience Pack)

  • The end user only has to reorder one item
