About Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company Inc.

We are a leading company in the field of special polymers and oxygen absorbing technologies. Our NY-MXD6 is often applied to multilayer PET bottles and oxygen absorber, AGELESS is used for IV solutions, ampules, pre-filled syringes and other drugs for many years to prevent oxidation. Based on these technologies and long-time experiences, we have developed multilayer plastic vial & syringe having glass-like oxygen barrier. The products called OXYCAPT consist of three layers, Cyclo Olefin Polymer (COP)/ New polymer with excellent oxygen barrier/ COP. The oxygen barrier is more than 100 times better than existing COP containers and the amount of inorganic extractables are much lower than Type 1 Glass. We believe OXYCAPT multilayer plastic vial & syringe is more suitable for oxygen sensitive drugs like biologics than glass.

  • Brochure OXYCAPT Multilayer Plastic Vial & Syringe

    OXYCAPT™ is multilayer plastic Vial & Syringe. It consists of three layers. The inner and outer layer are made of cyclo olefin polymer (COP) which is the most reliable polymer in pharma industry. The middle layer is made of new polyester developed by MGC. Due to COP’s characteristics, the products are equipped with high water vapor barrier, very low extractables, high pH stability, low protein adsorption, high break resistance, etc. The new polyester with excellent oxygen and UV barrier plays a role as an oxygen barrier layer.
