More Benefits and User-Friendliness – The Foundation of nextaro®

How can a mixing and transfer device offer users more benefits and enhance usability through optimized user-friendliness? These were the questions we thoroughly considered when embarking on the development of the nextaro® product family. The results of our efforts had already convinced us for quite some time, and positive feedback from the market now confirms the advantages of nextaro®.

Octapharma, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies specializing in the development, production, and distribution of drugs for treating various blood coagulation disorders, conducted a comparative study. The aim was to compare the user-friendliness and design of nextaro® with the existing Mix2Vial system. Both systems were evaluated for the reconstitution of coagulation factor products, among others, a four-Factor Prothrombin Complex Concentrate (Octaplex®/Balfaxar®). With positive results! The study revealed a 40% higher preference among users for the new nextaro® compared to the previous transfer system. The following factors were specifically compared:

  • Design of the device
  • Force to connect water vial to device
  • Engagement of the vial (acoustic feedback)
  • Completeness of water transfer
  • Completeness of dissolution
  • Foam formation
  • Transfer speed
  • Adaptation of the syringe
  • Transfer of product into syringe
  • Extraction force for syringe filling
  • Overall handling
