Parenteral Packaging Focuses on Safety
Prefilled and needleless systems make injections safer.
A needleless system for the reconstitution of parenteral drugs into prefilled diluent syringes features a universal luer-lock connection that allows for fast and safe reconstitution. The Bio-Set Injection system is available in 20- or 13-mm neck drug vials. The vials can be easily processed on existing filling equipment. After the vial is filled with powder or lyophilized and stoppered with a rubber closure, the injection device can be capped to the drug vial, which replaces the traditional aluminum crimp seal.

A dual-chamber syringe offers safety during patient application, while minimizing product loss and packaging waste. The Lyo-Ject allows lyophilization of the drug to take place directly in the syringe, packaged with diluent for fast reconstitution and injection.
