Elastomers for Drug-Delivery Devices

West Pharmaceutical Services, Exton, PA, has launched a new advanced elastomer. The 4040/40 formulation includes two LyoTec® stopper designs — 13 and 20 mm — with a versatile universal design that delivers high functionality and reliability. According to the company, it was developed through a quality-by-design (QbD) approach to material selection and component analysis, resulting in a reduction of extractables. The formulation features Westar® Select quality and low particulate levels, with optimal design, drug compatibility, and quality designed to protect drug stability, drive robust performance, and minimize fill-finish rejects.
