Standardized Syringe Testing with Zwick

ZwickRoell


In today's world, the medical industry is continually faced with the challenge of providing patients with better care. Glass syringes that deliver drugs to patients are an essential part of this care. These glass syringes are typically used in connection with injection needles, needless Luer locks, adapters, and transfer devices.

The need for accurate and repeatable tests on syringes is playing an increasingly important role. Standard ISO 11040-4 provides producers of syringes and drugs a shared basis for producing reliable test results.

Zwick testing solutions to ISO 11040-4

ISO 11040-4 (Prefilled syringes -- Part 4: Glass barrels for injectables and sterilized subassembled syringes ready for filling) defines the following tests:

■C1: Flange breaking resistance
■C2: Luer cone breaking resistance
■E: Glide force test method to evaluate syringe lubrication
■F: Needle penetration test
■G1: Needle pull-out force
■G2: Closure system liquid leakage test
■G3: Luer lock adaptor collar pull-off force
■G4: Luer lock adaptor collar torque resistance
■G5: Luer lock rigid tip cap unscrewing torque
■G6: Pull-off force of the tip cap or the needle shield

Zwick is the first materials testing machine manufacturer that offers a complete portfolio that tests to ISO 11040-4. The interchangeable test fixtures are ideal for various syringe types and ensure that the testing of prefilled syringes is standardized.

Orthogonal Approaches for the Analysis of Protein Sequence

Ludger Ltd

One of the most important classes of biopharmaceuticals is monoclonal antibodies. They are expressed from living cells, and are consequently subject to complex biochemical pathways. Not all of these routes are fully understood, and many are sensitive to the subtlest of environmental changes. Changes such as these can affect the final biopharmaceutical sequence, structure and post-translational modifications, not to mention any changes that may occur during further purification. This often means that the final product from one batch may be different from the last in another batch. Each batch is a complicated mix of similar molecules, and analysis of the degree of batch-to-batch variation is therefore very important to the establishment of the drug's safety for medicinal use and patient administration.
