Differentiate your drug-prefilled device combination
BD Sterifill Advance™ Polymer Prefillable Syringe features and benefits:
* Stakeholder respondents include risk managers & infection control nurses, intensive care nurses, business/ department managers, pharmacists, and anesthesiologists according to a quantitative survey (n=147) on “Drivers of use of prefilled syringes” conducted in UK, France and Germany. Types of drugs covered were from drug categories including cardiac, anesthetics, pain etc. in the survey.
** The simulated study was a single session, randomized with n=60 HCWs experienced with a daily practice of administering 50mL infusions. During this study, HCWs performed 8 simulated infusions with BD Sterifill Advance™ 50mL syringes. Tip cap satisfaction levels of HCWs were measured through a scoring of 0 (very dissatisfied) to 10 (very satisfied) wherein 90% of HCWs gave BD screw-on tip cap a score of 8.
† An observational study (with HCWs, n=28) comparing preparation using BD Sterifill Advance™ with conventional, immediate use syringe was conducted. On average, preparation time for 5mL BD Sterifill Advance™ was 1:50 min whereas for the 5mL immediate use syringe it was 2:56 min. Similarly, for 20mL BD Sterifill Advance™ it was 1:09 min whereas for the 20mL immediate use syringe, it was 2:23 min.

‡ A 2013 clinical study was designed to demonstrate the compatibility (flow characteristics) of BD Sterifill™ 50mL (renamed to BD Sterifill Advance™ 50mL prior to commercial launch) with a panel of electric syringe pumps available on the market for 4 flow rates (1, 5, 25 and 100mL/h) through a total of n=150 simulated Water for Injection (WFI) infusions as per ISO 7886-2. Tested syringe pumps were Perfusor space (B Braun), Module DPS (Fresenius Kabi), Poliot A2 (Fresenius Kabi), Injectomat (Fresenius Kabi) and GH+ Alaris (Becton Dickinson).

§ Human factor results from intravenous, subcutaneous and intra-articular manual injections performed by 15 experienced nurses indicates no technical incident or adverse event was recorded for manual use (5,10 and 20ml) and for pump use (20ml). The difficulty encountered by nurses to select the correct program on the syringe pump highlights importance to provide training to end-users on the use of pump.
