LUBRICANT CAUSING PARTICLE PROBLEMS:
You've been charged with getting a prefilled syringe or medical device to market, and suddenly, test results reveal sub-visible particles, protein aggregation, or worse, changes in the efficacy of the drug.

Tribofilm has patented two next-generation coating technologies that offer the industry options when
silicone oil does not meet requirements: TriboGlide-DS® and TriboLink-Si®.
TriboGlide-DS® and TriboLink-Si® were developed with support from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (Small Business Innovation Research grants), in consultation with medical device companies struggling with lubricant-triggered forces and particle problems.
