Date:2/27/2013

EXTON, Pa., Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. (NYSE: WST), a leading global developer and manufacturer of components and systems for injectable drug delivery, announces the commercial introduction of its ID Adapter.

West recently received 510K clearance for the ID Adapter from the United States Food and Drug Administration.

The adapter is designed to help improve the consistency and reliability of intradermal injections for vaccines and other injectable drugs. The system will complement West's portfolio of prefilled syringe offerings and technologies. Correctly administered ID injections can help conserve the supply of high-value vaccines and can provide patients significant benefit through more reliable injection. The ID Adapter will provide an alternative to the Mantoux method, the industry standard for intradermal injection since 1907. The Mantoux method is accomplished by inserting the needle into the skin at a very shallow angle. It requires extensive training and experience to perform correctly and consistently, whereas the ID Adapter enables this process to be carried out more easily and with greater reliability.

"We are delighted to offer our customers a solution which can improve reliability and performance of intradermal injections and meet growing market demands in this area," said John Paproski , President, Pharmaceutical Delivery Systems, West.
