medmix Drug Delivery (Haselmeier) launches its passive needle safety device SicuroJect™
January 24, 2024
medmix Drug Delivery (Haselmeier) launches its passive needle safety device SicuroJect™ at Pharmapack Europe in Paris, further expanding its product portfolio.
medmix Drug Delivery introduces SicuroJect, a disposable passive needle safety device for subcutaneous injection. The device is intended for use by patients, healthcare professionals or caregivers to prevent needle stick injuries after use. SicuroJect is being developed in two variants for a standard 1 mL long or 2.25 mL pre-filled glass or plastic syringe. Haselmeier offers SicuroJect as an off-the-shelf solution and as a full-service platform including combination product development, design verification, final assembly, secondary packaging, labeling and serialization, depending on the customer’s needs.
SicuroJect is intuitive and easy to use because it uses the same injection technique as a pre-filled syringe without the need for an additional step to activate the safety feature. To prevent needle stick injuries after use, the safety feature is automatically activated at the end of injection. The mechanism also prevents accidental activation. The ergonomic design allows an easy one-handed activation, and optional add-on finger flanges improve control for users of all ages and for high-viscosity drugs. The transparent barrel cover allows the patient to easily see if the medication has been completely administered.
“With SicuroJect, we are further expanding our product portfolio, adding a fast and economical solution for pre-filled syringes”, said Frank Leipold, Vice President Product Management at Haselmeier. “Our collaboration with AARDEX Group and other partners enables a comprehensive offering for our customers from clinical trials to market launch.” Chris Muenzer, Vice President of Innovation and Development at Haselmeier, adds: “As a second step to improve usability and patient experience, it is easy to upgrade from SicuroJect to PiccoJect™, our fully featured 2-step autoinjector.”
Like PiccoJect and D-Flex™, SicuroJect can also be provided with an RFID label. This makes it possible to collect data on device use, which can be tracked and evaluated thanks to our collaboration with AARDEX Group. Their MEMS® Adherence Software helps to understand the collected data and improve patient adherence.
