A new Sanner polypropylene (PP)-based syringe system, which was developed with Klosterfrau Healthcare Group and its subsidiary Farco-Pharma, attaches the syringe directly to the catheter. This not only makes the application easier and more hygienic. It also saves on the plastic connector and is therefore more sustainable when it comes to using scarce resources.
A round cone takes over the function of the adapter. The injection point is not at the thickest spot, i.e., not on the round cone, but at a more suitable location, which ensures a secure sealing fit on the catheter access.
“This is supported by compliance with the tightest tolerances in manufacturing,” says Beatrix Höber, account manager at Sanner. “Thanks to our decades of experience in injection molding, we were able to implement the entire project within a very short time.”
The Sanner in-house product design department developed two proposals and created prototypes using 3D printing. Less than nine months passed from the development of the concepts to the qualification of a 16-cavity mold.
“Fast and targeted development is characteristic of Sanner,” says Höber. “With the construction of the new plant at our headquarters in Bensheim, we will have even better possibilities for the rapid implementation of new devices as of fall 2024.”
