Montville, NJ-based Berlex Laboratories has received Food and Drug Administration approval to market its Magnevist MRI contrast agent in prefilled syringes. The contrast company expects to begin shipments of the syringes in the first quarter of 1999. Prefilled syringes will come in 10-mL, 15-mL, and 20-mL sizes.
