MADRID, Oct. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- (Booth #4G30) -- West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. (NYSE: WST), a global leader in innovative systems and component solutions for injectable drug administration, today launched Daikyo RUV® (ready-to-use/validated) components at CPhI Worldwide/InnoPack Europe 2015 in Madrid, Spain. In addition, West is showcasing a range of the company's products, which demonstrate how drug delivery and packaging solutions can support pharmaceutical manufacturers to provide safe, effective products and administration systems to patients.
Daikyo RUV components are manufactured using clean, high-quality elastomer formulations and then washed, camera-inspected and sterilized to help reduce the customer's manufacturing footprint, streamline processes, minimize risks around component preparation and eliminate bioburden.
"Today's pharmaceutical manufacturers are challenged by rigorous aseptic processing requirements as well as ever-increasing pressure on operational and capital resources. Bioburden management challenges and equipment downtime can reduce efficiency and lead to increased operating expenses," said Dr. Mike Schafers, Vice President, Global Marketing, Pharmaceutical Packaging Systems, West. "That's why West and Daikyo Seiko Ltd. have partnered to offer high-quality, ready-to-sterilize (RSV) and ready-to-use/validated (RUV) components that meet the highest sterilization and quality standards."
Visitors at CPhI/InnoPack will also get deeper insight into two additional high-quality drug components during the show: Flip-Off® PlusRU seals and NovaPure® components. Flip-Off PlusRU are sterile, high-quality seals that consistently achieve reproducible and safe container integrity for drug products while ensuring low levels of bioburden and particulates, which may help make drugs safer for patients. NovaPure components are developed with a process that incorporates Quality by Design principles and support customers to protect the efficacy and purity of sensitive and demanding drug products. The NovaPure product offering includes serum and lyophilization stoppers and syringe plungers.
