syriQTM InJentle syringes are free of tungsten (1) and protect sensitive medicines from interacting with metal needles or glues during storage (2). The silicone is baked on to allow the plunger to slide more smoothly. This reduces the free silicone and the respective particles (3). A tamper-evident closure allows doctors and patients to recognize whether a syringe is new or not (4). The needle does not come into contact with the needle shield and is therefore protected and stays sharp (5). Source: SCHOTT
Yet another improvement with syriQTM InJentle is the lubrication of the barrel. Generally, silicone oil is used to lubricate the inside of the syringe barrel to ensure smooth injection. But, silicone oil can be a source for particles which could alter sensitive proteins under certain conditions. syriQTM InJentle features a glass barrel that has ”baked-on” silicone. This results in less free silicone and significantly lower particles without compromising the functionality of PFS.
Furthermore, the needle shield has a tamper-evident closure. Doctors and patients can thus immediately tell whether a syringe has already been used or not. In addition, the needle does not come into contact with the inside surface of the needle shield thus protecting the sharpness of the needle. syriQTM InJentle PFS can be offered with thin needles up to 32 gauge that reduce the pain of an injection for the patient. ”With our syriQTM InJentle syringe, the drug comes into contact with the same materials as it does in a vial – glass and rubber,” Busimi concludes. ”This is important for pharmaceutical companies that are interested in switching from vials to syringes. Our solution makes the change much easier. In addition, we ship our products in standard nests and tubs for filling on conventional filling lines,” he says.
