COP plastic needle syringe, 1.0 ml
Gx RTF® ClearJect®
Needle Syringe

Our newly introduced Gx RTF® ClearJect® brand combines our trusted RTF® (ready-to-fill) concept of the glass syringes with ClearJect® to create the new Gx RTF® ClearJect® brand. This new brand for COP syringes was developed in order to offer our American and European customers an expanded product portfolio from a european production location in the future. The first product from this line is the Gx RTF® ClearJect® COP plastic syringe with cannula in the syringe size 1 ml long. The COP needle syringe is free of glue, as the cannula isn't glued in, but is instead directly overmolded in the injection molding procedure. The economic efficiency of our Gx RTF® ClearJect® syringe system is ensured by a concept that consistently supplements the innovative syringe bodies with commercially available standard components (needle shields, plunger stoppers, plunger rods, backstops, and finger flange enlargements).
