Advantages Prefillable COP Plastic Syringes

Glass-like transparency, high break resistance and much more…

COP (Cyclo-Olefin-Polymer) syringes are distinguished by a high degree of break resistance, glass-like transparency and very low oxygen permeation compared to other plastics. They can be used directly for aseptic filling. COP releases no alkali ions, which means that the risk of a pH value shift is elimimated. Production with injection molding process enables flexible designs - even customer-specific designs are possible. In comparison to glass more precise production tolerances are possible thanks to the exact injection molding. This makes a higher degree of customized solutions possible, for example, when a lower remaining volume is required.

Your PLUS with Gerresheimer

High biocompatibility for challenging tasks

COP prefillable plastic syringes
  • Adhesive-free: The cannula is not glued in, but is instead insert-molded during the injection molding process
  • Free of metal oxide residue
  • Precisely monitored quantity of high-viscosity, and thus low-particulate, Dow Corning 360 Medical Fluid (12,500 cSt) silicone oil
  • Minimal extractables and leachables
  • High pH tolerance, no shift in pH value
  • Very low oxygen permeation rate in comparison to other plastics
