West Pharmaceuticals recently announced its latest offering for the Indian domestic market – NovaGuard SA Pro Safety System, a single-use accessory for pre-filled ISO standard 0.5mL staked needle syringes, the company notified in a statement.

It further said that with the introduction of the 0.5mL version, NovaGuard SA Pro safety system is now available for ISO 0.5mL standard and 1mL long glass staked needle syringes.

As a product with innovative safety features that help protect healthcare workers and patients from accidental needlestick injuries, the NovaGuard SA Pro safety system can be deployed using a single-handed technique and is designed to prevent pre-activation during handling.

Furthermore, the device design facilitates easy assembly of a glass pre-filled syringe with minimal change parts and changeover time needed to the existing assembly equipment lines at customer facilities.

Speaking in this regard, Alagu Subramaniam, Senior Sales Director, West Asia Pacific Region, said, “At West, we are committed to contributing to a healthier world by improving patient health through our innovative products and services.

We are delighted to expand our NovaGuard SA Pro safety system offerings in India enabling access to a more secure syringe for treatment in innumerable diseases.”

According to the statement, the key benefits of the NovaGuardSA Pro safety system include compatibility with ISO 0.5mL standard and 1mL long glass staked needle syringes, comprehensive technical document provided, tamper-resistant function to help prevent needle recapping, ease of use assembly on low and high-speed filling lines, transparent for drug inspection and labelling, compatibility with standard or custom plunger rods, functionality studies in temperatures ranging from -40ºC to 60ºC, minimal impact for their use on pre-filled syringe assembly lines, low activation force for end-user comfort in the delivery of drug product and it is designed to not pre-activate during handling.

The statement also informed that earlier this year, West announced its partnership with Venus Remedies, whose brand Cloti-X utilises West’s NovaGuard SA Pro 1mL safety system, which is designed for use with pre-filled ISO standard 1mL long staked-needle syringes.

With its current launch of the 0.5mL version for the Indian market, West is aiming to bring more value to local customers and the healthcare industry. The 0.5mL offering is suitable for low molecular weight heparin drugs as well as biologic drug products being developed by generics manufacturers.
