Paris, - Gerresheimer presents a prefillable 2.25 ml needle syringe. The needle syringe is available in traditional tub and nest packaging.
This new product extends the comprehensive Gerresheimer range of sterile and non-sterile syringe systems which are supplied on a ready-to-fill basis to the pharma and biotech industries.
Numerous pharmaceutical manufacturers already changed over from purchasing prefillable syringes as bulk products to purchasing them as ready-to-fill products, i.e. washed, siliconized and sterilized with the tip caps or needle shield on. Gerresheimer markets these products under the RTF® (Ready-to-Fill) brand name.
The tub and nest packaging is the established norm for ready-to-fill syringes in the pharma industry. It permits processing of syringes from different suppliers on the filling lines without major retrofitting requirements.
Gerresheimer's 2.25 ml needle syringe is available in the conventional tub and nest configuration, which means the pharma manufacturers don't have to perfom any complex production line modifications.
The new product is available with a round or cut finger flange and it is supplied with a ½" needle and rigid needle shield. Each tub and nest packaging contains 100 syringes.
