Sterile and Particle Filter

Requirement

Develop and manufacture a particle and sterile filter with the largest possible effective filter surface area for the extraction of active substances from pouch or vial systems.

Solution

The requirement was satisfied through the combination of two injection-molded components. The upper section holds the spike, the lower section the Luer Lock connection. The customer can choose between hydrophobic and hydrophilic filter membranes.

Implantation Needles

Requirement

Develop a special trocar needle for Bayer HealthCare AG for implantation of a depot drug.

Solution

A special plunger was developed for easy deposit of the implant under the skin. The ergonomic design of the needle hub, as well as the special bevel geometry and markings, simplifies the needle's use.

Applicator / Application System

Requirement

Develop and manufacture an applicator needle and applicator as an aid for implantation of a depot drug.

Solution

The ergonomically designed applicator simplifies the deposit of the implant. A special safeguard prevents accidental release of the implant deposit and ensures secure placement. The implantation is fast, simple and minimally invasive for the patient.
