Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) set out to create a new device to alleviate these risks: the UltraSafe Passive® Needle Guard – a single-use, anti-needle-stick device for pre-filled injectable syringes. It allows the syringe and needle to pull away from the patient after injection back into the guard.
A guard against accidental needlesticks
The medical-grade Makrolon® polycarbonate was the optimal material choice for BD’s UltraSafe Passive® Needle Guard: it flows well and is easily released from the mold which increases the design flexibility even of complicated parts. In addition, its high strength and transparency makes it easier to see syringe markings, labels and contents. For even more patient safety.
