Date:5/8/2009

Ravensburg, Germany, May 8, 2009 / b3c newswire / - West (NYSE: WST), the world’s premier manufacturer of components and systems for injectable drug delivery, and Vetter, a worldwide leading independent specialist in the contract manufacturing of prefilled application systems, have introduced a ready-to-use, WFI prefilled syringe for reconstituting lyophilized drug products.

“The Vetter/West WFI syringe combines the best of pharmaceutical components in a drug administration system that we believe customers will embrace,” said Mike Schaefers, Vice President, Marketing, Europe, West. “This system can be applied to our customers’ high-value pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical drug products.”
“This system unites two of the world’s leaders in drug administration systems and pharmaceutical processing,” said Oskar Gold, Vice President, Key Account Management, Vetter. “We are pleased that we can offer customers a world-class prefilled syringe system.”

The syringe features a plunger with West’s FluroTec® barrier film and Vetter’s V-OVS® tamper-evident closure, which includes a West tip cap. The film, developed by West’s partner, Daikyo Seiko, Ltd., provides an effective barrier against organic and inorganic extractables, which helps maintain the purity of the diluent.

The V-OVS® closure system is designed to give a prefilled syringe system effective protection features. It consists of a tip cap, a Vetter Luer Lock and a tamper-evident seal. The components are pre-assembled as a single part, which is mounted on the syringe barrel with a Luer-cone and Luer-groove. The integrity of the syringe system is maintained if the seal has not been broken.  The syringes are available with fill volumes between 0.5mL and 3.0mL. The glass syringe barrels are treated with baked silicone for lubricity and are 100 percent visually inspected to provide highest quality levels.

Customers will have packaging options, including individual blister packaging.
Vetter fills and terminally sterilizes the syringe at its facility in Langenargen, Germany. The syringes are supplied with regulatory documentation to meet requirements of markets in Europe, Japan, North America and numerous other countries.
