BD Medical, a segment of BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) launched BD Sterifill Advance™,  a prefillable polymer syringe specially engineered to deliver large volume injectable drugs by way of intravenous infusion.

BD Sterifill Advance is a 50-mL plastic prefillable syringe made with an advanced cyclic olefin polymer that is designed to offer advantages to drug manufacturers and healthcare professionals including reduced breakage, glass-like transparency, and low levels of extractables. This polymer combined with a specific coating technology provides smooth gliding, ensuring an accurate and consistent infusion rate.

Designed to offer drug developers, healthcare workers, and patients a new option for prefill drug delivery that sets standards in both safety and convenience, the BD Sterifill Advance aims to provide a seamless transition for healthcare workers in the hospital setting because the syringe was developed from the design of BD Plastipak™, a disposable syringe. This design avoids any syringe pump reprogramming activity for hospitals and aims to reduce risks of administration errors for healthcare workers. In addition, the syringe has been designed to be highly durable, reducing the probability of flange breakage and ensures a reliable connection with syringe pumps.

The syringe can address a number of drug delivery needs for the intravenous infusion of large volumes of drugs including: anesthesia, pain management, cardiac therapy, and nutrition. The product can also be used in a variety of settings for parenteral administration of pharmaceutical compounds.
