A program of presentations and workshops runs parallel to the trade show and concludes on October 21.
Claudia Petersen, Director Business Development at Gerresheimer Bünde GmbH, will be illustrating the company’s latest developments in her presentation on Requirements Towards and Actual Properties of Ready-to-Fill COP Syringes (ClearjectTM) to be Used with High-demanding Pharmaceuticals (10/19/2010, 10.15 a.m.). ClearjectTM brand syringes are transparent, pre-fillable plastic syringe systems made of cyclic olefin polymer (COP). They are extremely durable and have special barrier properties which make them ideal for sensitive parenteral medications and for the demanding fields of cytostatics and biopharma-ceuticals.

RTF®-brand ready-to-fill glass syringes can have multicolour printing, a laser-applied identity code and a tamper-evident closure system. They are also delivered to the pharma industry sterile, pre-assembled and, if desired, with baked-on siliconization.
