All-in-One Mix and Inject Prefillable Syringe System

Brief Description

Applications

Powdered medication that must be reconstituted with a diluent before it can be injected requires a number of components and several cumbersome steps. The process becomes especially taxing for those who need to self-inject several times daily, often while away from the privacy of home. Non-compliance to a scheduled medication therapy due to the difficulty could result in serious negative effects on the patient’s health.

 

Advantages

This technology, designed by a nurse, combines all the necessary components into one simple, ready to use, pre-filled syringe system which is activated just prior to injection. It combines several components in one convenient package, minimizing handling, to simplify the steps required to dispense the medication by injection.
