Interoperability between interconnecting devices from different manufacturers based on the ISO 594-1:1986 and ISO 594-2:1998 standards. Compatible with any syringe size with luer-lock mount. It will fill the void of safety needles in veterinary medicine.
No residual volume, reducing the transmission of HIV, and hepatitis B and C. Eliminates inaccurate dosing, and yields sizable savings in the efficiency of medication delivery. Needle also provides for hermetic connection with syringe needle tip, thus entirely eliminating a presence of an air bubble and waste of medication while aspiring it.
Offering health care providers worldwide new cost-reduction opportunities with a profoundly cost-effective design being composed of 4 inexpensive parts. Can be mass produced at the same cost as a conventional non-safety needle.
Functions just like a standard needle with one-hand activation and no separate movement required to deploy the needle tip. Safety activation can be achieved before extraction from the patient, and without tissue damage. Distinctively minimizes air bubble and medication waste.
Facilitates safe disposal (no recapping required) which significantly reduces packaging costs through elimination of a solid needle cap. Absence of a cap and prominent parts of a safety mechanism, saves space inside a bio-hazardous container.
"Of the estimated 14.0 million (range: 11.2 million to 22.0 million) people who inject drugs worldwide, UNODC estimates that 1.6 million (range: 1.2 million to 3.9 million) are living with HIV. That represents a global prevalence of HIV of 11.5 per cent among people who inject drugs."
"Our models suggest that injection-related HIV epidemics may not occur when most (e.g. 95% or more) injecting drug users use low dead-space syringes."
"The monopolistic people who were in control of the buying that goes on in American hospitals went out there and blocked it."
“I don’t want you to show this product to my nurses…’cause they’ll want it, and they can’t have it.”
"The FDA Alert  recommended that design features provide protection before, during, and after use, and after disposal."
