Unilife receives patent for Unifill syringe
York County-based Unilife Corp. has received a U.S. patent for its Unifill syringe that provides a long-term competitive advantage into 2026, according to a news release.
It covers the firm's proprietary technology for the integration of automatic and operator-controlled needle retraction features within the barrel of a prefilled syringe, the release stated.
Getting the patent is further validation of the uniqueness of Unilife's technology, the company said.
The safety syringe maker recently announced it signed a seven-year commercial supply contract with a pharmaceutical company for the Unifill syringe.
