Raumedic introduces safety device for syringes

Raumedic (Helmbrechts, Germany), a supplier of extrusion, molding, and assembly services to the medical device industry, has developed a safety mechanism for injection systems designed to prevent needlesticks. The RauSafe device can be adapted to existing injection systems on the market, providing reliable protection and an intuitive user profile. The safety device is activated following an injection simply by pushing it forward. An audible click confirms that it is positioned correctly.

RauSafe-300.jpgThe European Union implemented legislation in May 2013—Directive 2010/32/EU—that requires healthcare employers in all member states to provide personnel with injection systems that have an integrated safety device. An estimated 3.5 million needlestick injuries occur annually in doctors' offices, hospitals, and homecare settings worldwide, causing a potential risk of infection.

In related news, Raumedic has also developed a proprietary drug-delivery system in collaboration with DS Technology that enables precise dosing of pharmaceutical pellets. The product was designed to respond to increasing demand for precise, user-friendly dosing aids, says Raumedic.

Raumedic will showcase these products at Pharmapack in Paris on 12 and 13 February.
