10/02/2016 Ompi EZ-fill® Integrated Tip Cap: a twist-off closure system for Prefilled Syringes

Ompi expands its closures offer for the Ompi EZ-fill® Syringes by adding up a twist-off closure system for Luer Lock Cone Syringes, in line with the consolidated alternative already present on the market.

Ompi EZ-fill® Integrated Tip Cap (ITC) is developed to be the ideal match for Ompi EZ-fill® Luer Lock Cone Syringes. Robust technical studies and tests on torque force and pull force have led to a perfect fit between the glass and the plastic components.

With an easy twist-off functionality, it provides improved usability for final users without compromising the integrity of the prefilled syringe itself.

The Integrated Tip Cap is the result of a rubber component (Tip Cap, rubber formulations: 7025, 7028, FM27, FM30) inserted in a rigid plastic cap, screwed in a Luer Lock Adaptor and pre-assembled on the Ompi EZ-fill® Syringe. Its functional performances in terms of torque force and pull force are determined by the Luer Lock Adaptor, in particular by the inner hole diameter, the length and the thickness of the ribs.

 “With its screw functionality Ompi EZ-fill® Integrated Tip Cap (ITC) is a revolution in the Ompi EZ-fill® Syringes world - said Alessandro Morandotti, EZ-fill Syringes Product Manager at Ompi Pharmaceutical Systems. - Its optimized design on the glass cone has been developed in order to assure the best match possible with our glass prefillable syringes. At the same time our offer provides more options to pharmaceutical companies.”

Ompi EZ-fill® Integrated Tip Cap (ITC) has been developed for different syringes sizes: 1ml std, 1ml long, 1,25ml, 1,5ml, 2,25ml, 3ml, 5ml. In the future, Ompi will be pleased to offer Ompi EZ-fill® Integrated Tip Cap in a wider range of syringe sizes.
