Catalent, the leading global provider of advanced delivery technologies and development solutions for drugs, biologics and consumer health products, announced the launch of ADVASEPT Lock, a stopper-less, glass- and needle-free vial for the safe and efficient delivery of injectable medications.

Easily opened, ADVASEPT Lock attaches to a luer syringe, combining a safe, convenient and functional container closure with the security of an advanced aseptic filling solution.

Like the rest of Catalent’s advanced, aseptic ADVASEPT technology family, ADVASEPT Lock addresses many sterile manufacturing challenges by automating the container formation and filling of the drug product into a glass-free container closure, eliminating glass particulates and delamination issues, and drastically reducing the risk of foreign particle and microbial contamination. Minimizing the risk of these types of manufacturing issues has the potential to improve the reliability of supply that targets the root cause of many generic injectable drug shortage issues.

The technology also offers safety advantages, as no needle is required for the withdrawal of the vial contents, while the design avoids the risk of sharps injuries associated with the opening of traditional ampoules. Additionally, through efficient design of the manufacturing process, ADVASEPT Lock is a cost effective solution compared to traditional glass vials.
The ADVASEPT Lock technology is available in 1 ml, 3 ml and 5 ml container closures but may be custom designed to meet specific brand or delivery needs.
