31/01/2017 Ompi EZ-fill® ISS: an Integrated Safety System for Prefilled Syringes

Ompi presents at Pharmapack Paris its integrated needlestick protection to prevent end users’ injury 

 

Ompi expands its Ompi EZ-fill® Syringes offer by adding up an Integrated Safety System (ISS) for staked needle syringes. Ompi EZ-fill® ISS is a brand new fully passive safety system designed to guarantee end users’ safety and reduce total cost of ownership for the pharmaceutical companies.

Ompi EZ-fill® ISS is the first development within the platform licensed by Tip-Top, a primary designer of proprietary safety needlestick protection devices and technologies. Based on their mini-Max design, Ompi EZ-fill® ISS avoids piercing after rubber needle shield removal, providing an end-user experience similar to a standard syringe.

"Ompi EZ-fill® Integrated Safety Systems (ISS) is a breakthrough in the safety systems technologies - says Andrea Zambon, Marketing Director Pharmaceutical Systems division at Stevanato Group. – In addition to end users’ safety and intuitive use, it enables the pharmaceutical company to maintain the glass primary container of choice. Ompi EZ-fill® ISS is designed to fit the existing fill-finish formats. It is supplied in a standard nest & tub configuration for easy processing on current fill-finish lines, with a significant reduction in terms of total cost of ownership.”

The Integrated Safety System is the result of a rubber needle shield inserted in a plastic shield with flexible wings, combined with a ring and a hub, pre-assembled on the Ompi EZ-fill® Syringe. Its functional performances allow locking the needle inside the safety device with no possibility to expose it again, after usage. 

“After Ompi EZ-fill® Integrated Tip Cap (ITC), the Ompi EZ-fill® Integrated Safety System (ISS) is another successful result of the synergies within the Stevanato Group companies. – says Mauro Stocchi, General Manager Pharmaceutical Systems division at Stevanato Group. - Balda, a provider of plastic solutions and delivery devices recently acquired by the Group, designed and produced all the plastic parts of the Ompi EZ-fill® ISS, in order to perfectly fit Ompi EZ-fill® Staked Needle Syringes."

Ompi EZ-fill® Integrated Safety System (ISS) has been developed for all formats of staked needle syringes and it is customizable in terms of needle gauge & length, barrel volume, ISO standard rubber components and siliconization.It meets the needs of different drug products applications such as: biotech, heparin and vaccines.

Thanks to the safety systems platform licensed by Tip-Top, Ompi will be pleased to offer a wider range of safety systems in the future.
