Syringe System Components and Accessories

For user-friendliness and safety

Our innovative system components are primarily aimed at user-friendliness and safety. These include, for example, the Gx® backstop, which eases the activation of the syringe through the enlarged finger flange. Or the rigid needle shield with Thermoplastic Elastomer (Gx TERNS®), which protects the cannula prior to injection, preserves its sharpness, and at the same time reduces the risk of puncture injuries. An intelligent solution for luer lock systems is offered by our Gx TELC®, the tamper-evident luer lock safety seal for screwing on. Plunger stoppers and Gx® plunger rods supplement our glass syringes to form a complete system.

Gx® backstops

The backstop reduces the opening diameter of the syringe body and simultaneously enlarges the finger flange with ergonomically shaped wings. In this way it fulfills two functions. First, the backstop prevents the plunger stopper from being pulled out of the syringe. Second, the backstop eases the handling of the syringe thanks to an enlarged finger flange area. This is helpful with viscous medications or in the case of counterpressure from the tissue, and in addition to this also benefits even patients with limited motor capacity when injected by the user.

Our backstop is made of plastics and manually clipped to the finger flange of the glass syringe. It is thereby compatible both with round and cut finger flange shapes. The backstop is available in various colors and can be used as a visual indicator for the user in order to prevent confusion. Differentiation from the competition and the expansion of existing systems in the product lifecycle are additional advantages of the Gx® backstop.
