BD SCF PremiumCoat Plunger Stopper

Thursday, 14 October, 2021 | Supplied by: BD AUSTRALIA (Becton Dickinson)


BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) has launched the BD SCF PremiumCoat Plunger Stopper in partnership with Aptar Pharma. It is a syringe plunger stopper for supporting the injection of biologics into subcutaneous tissue with a 1 mL pre-filled syringe.

The device is designed to deliver improved functional performance, such as reduced glide force and glide force variability, in a combination product. The product design incorporates Aptar Pharma’s rubber formulation and film technology, intended to support the protection of sensitive drugs by reducing the quantity and species of probable leachables. It should thus limit drug component interactions and provide drug integrity.

The plunger stopper is designed to address the need of pharmaceutical companies to de-risk drug development and support time to market while improving operational efficiencies and reducing stopper-related quality issues. The quality of the stopper is verified, in part, using BD Visioguard 100% camera inspection, the aim of which is to ensure that the plunger stoppers meet customer specifications and reduce the risk of foreign matter contamination.
