Overcoming challenges when developing subcutaneous drug delivery devices that empower patient self-administration.

The trend in parenteral patient therapy has been moving towards the home-care setting for some time as it empowers patient independence. However home administration brings additional requirements when developing a delivery device, and these are constantly evolving. Patient safety is always paramount, but useability is another critical factor, as well as sustainability and connectivity to support patient adherence. The challenge is to design a device to meet as many requirements as possible that can be on the market within 4-8 years. In this presentation we will discuss Gerresheimer’s mission of “innovating for a better life” and how we apply this when developing solutions that respond to the needs of patients, our pharmaceutical industry customers, and the environment, today and into the future.

Joint Session with Sterigenics

Prefilled ophthalmic syringes - New possibilities in terminal sterilization

Eric Offermann and Bernd Zeiss will speak about Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) as a new sterilization method and an alternative to EtO gas. A joint study carried out by Gerresheimer, Sterigenics and Früh, showed that NO2 is well suited to terminally sterilize prefilled ophthalmic syringes. The following 5 topics will be addressed in detail:

  1. Comparison of EtO vs. NOpenetration into the filled syringe.
  2. Analyze gas ingress through 4 different plunger stoppers including silicone oil-free and standard rubber plungers.
  3. Scrutinize gas ingress through 2 different cap designs based on different elastomer properties.
  4. Investigate gas permeation through COP plastic barrels compared to glass.
  5. Check if the final blister has an influence on either sterilization method.

The ultimate objective of this study was to offer the best syringe design and packaging paired with the most suitable sterilization modality to pharma customers.
