A Reliable Choice for Syringe Systems

A prefilled syringe is an advanced pharmaceutical primary package with the capability of storage and delivery of parenteral medications in one device.   A glass prefilled syringe is a one-piece system with a glass cone, flange, and barrel made from borosilicate glass tubing.  A medication is filled in the syringe at a pharmaceutical filling operation and is ready to be administered directly to the patient from the “prefilled” syringe device.   Glass Prefilled Syringes are covered in ISO 11040-4.
