A+Be is a mobile app that scans and recognizes any type of packaging, and displays digital content from product information to patient adherence programs, creating the "internet of non-connected objects", and the cheapest way to connect to patients via primary (glass containers), secondary (blisters, drug delivery devices) or tertiary packagings (pill-, carton-box), without modifying them.



Stand: SUP3


Glass Surface Technology develops and applies surface pre-treatments and innovative coatings for glass and plastic packaging. GST patented solutions improve the inner surface neutrality and protection, and brings new functions to the packaging inner surface. Our process increases the glass hydrolytic resistance and helps to solve extractables and leachables challenges for the packaging material.
