Worldwide unique label with integrated needle trap to protect against needlestick injuries after injections.

Needle-Trap: Innovative Needle Protection System for Prefilled Syringes

Every year, more than one million needlestick injuries occur in Europe's hospitals and medical practices. Physicians, nurses, and caregivers are exposed to an increased risk of infection. Legal requirements such as the EU Directive “2010/32/EU on the prevention of needlestick injuries in the hospital and healthcare sector” or the specifications of the US federal agency NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) for safe instruments are intended to protect medical personnel. Schreiner MediPharm's Needle-Trap needle protection system offers reliable protection for healthcare users and patients as well as a cost-efficient product for pharmaceutical manufacturers.
