Abstract (de)

Medizinische Substanzen kommen als flüssige und feste Präparate, im speziellen als gefriergetrocknete Produkte, in Behältern auf den Markt, wobei die Gefriertrocknung in situ in dem Behälter erfolgt. Die Erfindung sieht einen universellen Behälter vor, mit einem dünnwandigen Behältermantel (1), einem daran angeformten Ausflußteil, das mit einem üblichen Verschluß verschließbar ist, und einem geometrisch inhomogen ausgeformten Bodenteil (3), das jeweils mindestens eine rotationssymmetrische Vertiefung (3 b) sowie Materialanhäufung (3 a) aufweist, und dessen äußere Fläche eben oder nur mit einer der geringen zentrischen Einziehung ausgebildet ist. Ein derartiger Behälter ist leichtgewichtig und dennoch standsicher, gewährleistet eine homogene Lyophilisatstruktur, hat im Fall eines Glasbehälters eine sehr geringe Bruchrate und ist nahezu vollständig entleerbar. <IMAGE>
