Gerresheimer announced that it has acquired an exclusive license from West Pharmaceutical Services to complete its prefillable syringes portfolio with passive syringe safety solutions.
“As a result of our long-standing partnership with the leading manufacturer of packaging components and delivery devices for parenteral drugs, we are pleased to have acquired the rights to market this innovative, new syringe safety solution, developed by West,” said Uwe Röhrhoff, CEO of Gerresheimer. “By doing so, we will complement our very broad range of prefillable syringe solutions for biotech and other drugs.”
Gerresheimer makes prefillable syringes out of glass and plastics. The new safety portfolio is fully compatible with its ready-to-fill syringe portfolio. Safety solutions will be assembled on the syringe during the company’s ready-to-fill production process. It is also compliant with standard nests and tubs.
West plans to maintain its current safety solution product portfolio that is commercially available.
