The Daikyo Crystal Zenith RU prefillable syringe system is made from a proprietary, cyclic olefin polymer said to ensure drug purity. According to the co., the syringe's improved drainability reduces dosing errors, and a lubricating barrier film on the piston and the cap eliminates the need for silicone oil. Also the syringe reportedly resists breaking, can be autoclaved at 121 deg C and has a higher tolerance of freeze drying and liquid nitrogen exposure.
