Vetter’s Vetter-Ject closure system for prefilled syringes has an integrated needle hub and shield and is designed for sensitive compounds, such as biologics. The system’s baked-in siliconization process for the glass barrel allows the silicon content to be customized. The percentage of silicon used can be reduced up to 80% compared to standard siliconization processes used in conventional syringe systems, which makes the system suitable for silicon-sensitive drug products. The closure is tamper-evident; plastic bridges are broken when the needle shield is removed. The system can be used with a wide range of primary packaging options, such as stoppers and glass barrels.
