Addressing the Demands of Modern Drug Delivery Systems

As drug development continues to evolve, further advances in delivery technologies will help to refine the overall drug delivery system, from improvements to safety and performance of delivery devices, to primary containers with consistent and higher-quality components.

 Prefillable Syringe Components

Innovations in prefillable syringe plungers, such as barrier film, vision verification, particle control, steam sterilization and tighter specifications, combine designs developed to aid overall performance that will help to ensure consistency during delivery. West’s NovaPure™ plungers are the cumulative result of many of these innovations in drug protection and delivery.

For primary packaging components, West’s FluroTec™ film offers barrier protection for sensitive drug products and is an important aspect of NovaPure components, especially as we continue to see the growth of biologic drug products.

Vision verification (EnvisionTM  vision inspection process ) and particle control are elements of the NovaPure component design intended to ensure customers receive the highest quality components with industry leading particle specifications.

A plunger design optimized for performance, along with steam sterilization, help to provide consistent functionality in syringe systems – an increasingly important feature especially as injection devices are used and any variability in components could impact dose delivery and injection time.

NovaPure plungers provide performance, consistency and quality to meet the needs of modern drug delivery systems. Just ask our customers.

“The 1-3mL NovaPure plunger combines West technology (4023/50, Envision, Steam) with better functionality, which is ideal for products requiring Auto-Injector delivery.”-Customer response
