Filling

Are there appropriate facilities?

Yes, it comes in several concepts.
We will be happy to provide you with further information on this in the course of the project.

How is the implant syringe filled with the implant?

The implant syringe is supplied ready-to-fill in two assemblies (BG1: syringe body and BG2: plunger).

At the customer’s/contract filler’s premises, the implant is inserted into the syringe body (BG1) from behind on a suitable system up to the depot and then finally assembled with the plunger (BG2).

How is the implant syringe sterilized?

Depending on the compatibility of the implant and the active agent, the syringe can be either ETO sterilized or gamma irradiated.

Depending on the system and filling concept, sterilisation can take place before aseptic filling or, in the case of non-aseptic filling, as the final step.
