Longer-Lasting, Safer Syringes

Mitsubishi Gas Chemical (MGC) is a leading company in the field of oxygen barrier and absorbing technologies. Our special polymer, Nylon-MXD6, has been used for the middle layer of multilayer beverage bottles for many years to prevent oxidation and carbon dioxide’s evaporation of beverages. Additionally, our oxygen absorber, AGELESS®, has been used for IV solutions and pre-filled syringes to prevent oxidation of injectable drugs for more than 30 years.

Based on these technologies and experiences, we have successfully developed a multilayer plastic vial and syringe called OXYCAPT™. OXYCAPT consists of three layers. The drug contact layer and the outer layer are made of cyclo olefin polymer (COP), and the oxygen barrier layer is made of our novel polyester. OXYCAPT has achieved excellent oxygen barriers, high water vapor barriers, UV ray barriers, very low extractables, a high pH stability, low protein adsorption and aggregation, silicone-oil free barrels, high transparency, high break resistance, easier disposability, lighter weight, and so on. There are two types of OXYCAPT Multilayer Plastic Vial & Syringe, OXYCAPT-A and OXYCAPT-P. OXYCAPT-A has achieved a glass-like oxygen barrier. According to some internal studies, OXYCAPT-A was able to keep less oxygen concentration in headspace than type 1 glass, thanks to its oxygen-absorbing function. OXYCAPT-P also has an excellent oxygen barrier, although there is no oxygen-absorbing function. For example, the oxygen barrier of OXYCAPT-P vial is about 20 times better than that of a COP monolayer vial. OXYCAPT-A is suitable for particularly oxygen-sensitive drugs and OXYCAPT-P is recommended for all kinds of drugs.

Mauritius Island – An Emerging Centre for R&D in Biotechnology and the Life Sciences

CIDP (Centre International de Développement Pharmaceutique)

Mauritius, the tropical island situated in the Indian Ocean and known worldwide for its beautiful beaches, is also internationally recognised for its rule of law, and political and social stability. Over the past few years, the economy has been successfully transitioned from a monocrop to a diversified innovation-driven and knowledge-based economy, resting on agribusiness, export-oriented manufacturing, tourism, financial services, property development and real estate, ICT-BPO, the seafood industry, a free port, logistics and a nascent ocean economy. Emerging sectors such as healthcare and life sciences are presenting some niche areas for the taking, and the enabling environment is being put in place to make it happen - especially in the light of sustained growth within pharmaceutical, medical device, and clinical research. Important international players are already in operation locally as the country has established the appropriate legal and regulatory frameworks based on international norms, for the development of a strong biomedical research sector.
