West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc.,  a global leader in innovative solutions for injectable drug administration, today announced that the NovaGuard SA (Staked-needle Automatic) safety system has received 510(k) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration. The NovaGuard SA safety system helps reduce the risk of needlestick injuries by shielding the exposed needle of a prefilled syringe after use.
 
 
Packaging your drug in a prefillable syringe with a safety-needle feature
provides additional protection for health care workers and patients. The

technique to shield the exposed needle.
