OXY-CAPT is a multilayer plastic syringe and vial for parenterals.

Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Co. introduces a new high-value, advanced-material multilayer plastic syringe and vial for parenteral pharmaceuticals. OXY-CAPT™ brings together the best properties of plastic and glass containers through the combination of oxygen absorption and COP (cyclic olefin copolymer) high-barrier layers. The container is manufactured with three layers: water barrier layer—COP resin; oxygen barrier layer—new oxygen absorbing layer; and drug contact and water barrier layer—COP resin.

OXY-CAPT offers many benefits including the following:

• Oxygen barrier has lowest measurable oxygen permeability levels

• Extremely low water barrier vapor permeability values

• Inorganic, low molecular weight extractable levels far below Type I glass

• Oxygen barrier maintains glass-like clarity over time

• Lighter weight than glass with high resistance to breakage, easier handling, and lower shipping cost

• Low protein adsorption

• Glass-like transparency

• Reduced total amount of silicone oil

• Easy disposal

• Very low extractable TOC levels

Plunger and plunger rod are included and customizable according to customer requirements.
