West and Vetter have introduced a ready-to-use, WFI prefilled syringe for reconstituting lyophilized drug products. The syringe features a plunger with West’s FluroTec barrier film and Vetter’s V-OVS tamper-evident closure, which includes a West tip cap. The film, developed by West’s partner, Daikyo Seiko Ltd., provides an effective barrier against organic and inorganic extractables, which helps maintain the purity of the diluent.
The V-OVS closure system is designed to give a prefilled syringe system effective protection features. It consists of a tip cap, a Vetter Luer Lock and a tamper-evident seal. The components are pre-assembled as a single part, which is mounted on the syringe barrel with a Luer-cone and Luer-groove. The integrity of the syringe system is maintained if the seal has not been broken.
The syringes are available with fill volumes between 0.5mL and 3.0mL. The glass syringe barrels are treated with baked silicone for lubricity and are 100 percent visually inspected. Customers will have packaging options, including individual blister packaging.
Vetter fills and terminally sterilizes the syringe at its facility in Langenargen, Germany. The syringes are supplied with regulatory documentation to meet requirements of markets in Europe, Japan, North America and numerous other countries.
