If you are looking to transport pre-filled syringes via air or road at high altitudes, you need to ensure that extreme or changeable pressures do not lead to a loss of sterility in the syringes.
In the downloadable article below, our experts highlight how movement of the plunger stopper in a pre-filled syringe could lead to harmful contamination of the drug within the syringe. While some free movement of the plunger stopper as a result of altitude and pressure change is acceptable, any movement beyond certain limits could compromise the product within the pre-filled syringe and break the seal, presenting risk to patient health as well as significant losses as the product would be rendered unsafe for use.
