Custom packaging & inventory management of reference materials

Cerilliant® Custom Packaging

Reference Materials

For reference materials produced from Supelco®-synthesized materials, procured materials, or materials provided by the client, our custom packaging is designed for convenient handling of these finished products and ensures safe handling of flammable, toxic, or potent materials.

Solutions and Powders

Custom packaging can be performed in an inert environment and fulfilled on a continuous basis, when required, for toxic, potent, volatile, and sensitive materials. Choose packaging from a variety of container types and sizes with closures and seals that best suit your needs. Secondary packaging can also be provided for secondary containment, the convenience of use, the grouping of materials, or simply, to provide an aesthetically pleasing outer package. Cerilliant® offers custom-labeling, including private and OEM, to meet client specifications for all container types.

No packaging job is too small or too large. We regularly fulfill projects containing 5,000 to 80,000 units and can work within client specifications of fill weight or volume. Cerilliant® offers expertise for the following:
