Illustration of Sterile and Particle Filter

Sterile and Particle Filter

Requirement

Develop and manufacture a particle and sterile filter with the largest possible effective filter surface area for the extraction of active substances from pouch or vial systems.

Solution

The requirement was satisfied through the combination of two injection-molded components. The upper section holds the spike, the lower section the Luer Lock connection. The customer can choose between hydrophobic and hydrophilic filter membranes.

Implantation Needles

Requirement

Develop a special trocar needle for Bayer HealthCare AG for implantation of a depot drug.

Solution

A special plunger was developed for easy deposit of the implant under the skin. The ergonomic design of the needle hub, as well as the special bevel geometry and markings, simplifies the needle's use.

Applicator / Application System

Requirement

Develop and manufacture an applicator needle and applicator as an aid for implantation of a depot drug.

Solution

The ergonomically designed applicator simplifies the deposit of the implant. A special safeguard prevents accidental release of the implant deposit and ensures secure placement. The implantation is fast, simple and minimally invasive for the patient.

EasyVial Transfer System

Requirement

Develop a simple, contamination-proof and needle-free transfer system. A pre-mounted positioning on the vial guarantees a problem free connection to the syringe body.

Solution

The customer receives a preassembled and ready to use transfer system. The drug is extracted directly with the syringe, without the use of a needle. The hermetically sealed interior is sterile, so disinfection before use is not required.

TSV Adaptor

Requirement

Minimize the residual amount of expensive preparations left in vials after the drugs are extracted.

Solution

The solution developed and patented by sfm calls for the combination of injection and ventilation needle. A sterile filter is used to equalize the pressure in the drug vial. This design substantially reduces the residual volume of the drug.

The TSV adapter can be used as stand-alone product or in combination with the drug (already mounted on the vial). Activated with one hand immediately after use, the practical folding mechanism protects against possible injuries.

Easy Mix Mini

Requirement

How can two preparations be mixed and subsequently extracted without a needle being required?

Solution

sfm developed the Easy Mix Mini - a compact transfer system that is very safe to use. A technologically advanced injection molding solution ensures a leak tight connection between the two units (drug and water). The special challenges posed by the spikes on the drug and water sides were solved through this system patented by sfm.

Components for Dosing Systems

Requirement

The medical technology and pharmaceuticals industries require system-specific stainless steel components for the safe operation of their drug dosing systems.

Solution

sfm manufactures stainless steel components for various dosing systems. The product line includes components for low-fragmentation and residue-free penetration of rubber seals on vials, as well as lancing devices for drug capsules.

Double-Ended Needle

Requirement

Develop a device for the easy and optimum connection of two vials for the transfer or mixing of drugs. 

Solution

sfm's double-ended needles are an established and valued product used in many applications. The optimized manufacturing process produces an extremely simple device without compromising quality.
