Medical devices that come into direct contact with the human body pose a significant healthcare risk to patients. In order to ensure patient safety and exclude infections due to medical devices, high standards are applied when placing medical devices on the market. Sterilization in particular plays a central role in this matter.
Pre-filled syringes are functional, sterile, precise and affordable, what makes them suitable to be used by the patients themselves. Demand for pre-filled syringes in the pharmaceutical industry has risen considerably in recent years. STERISYS has developed suitable logistics and handling systems to fulfil this requirement. Our systems automate and optimize logistics flows of pre-filled syringes within production.
Industrial sterilization for medical devices and pharmaceutical products
A wide range of medical devices and pharmaceutical products are sterilized by ethylene oxide exposure. Sterilization with ethylene oxide, also known as EO or EtO sterilization, is an established sterilization modality in this industry and provides clear advantages over other processes. Thanks to the low process temperature (below 55°C), the use of EO is far superior to other methods in terms of material compatibility – which means that it is ideally suited for the sterilization of thermolabile products.
Logistics and handling of pre-filled syringes
Pre-filled syringes are regarded as one of the most effective methods of administering medications to patients. The rapidly increasing demand for pre-filled syringes places enormous challenges on the pharmaceutical industry. The corresponding technology developments keep pace with the growth of the global market for injectable medications.
