The Companion needle and plunger rod are incorporated with the syringe barrel to provide a differentiated delivery device. Upon completion of the injection, the user receives audible, visual and tactile cues that the dose has been delivered and then the needle automatically retracts into the barrel of the syringe, rendering the syringe needle-free and preventing re-use (Figure 1).
THE COMPANION PRODUCT FAMILY
When a pre-attached needle is preferred, the Companion Staked Needle Syringe allows the use of existing drug container components and provides integrated automatic needle retraction and reuse prevention.
The Dual Chamber Reconstitution Safety Syringe offers a pre-attached needle, the use of an existing syringe barrel and closure components, single-step reconstitution and injection, along with the Companion’s passive needle safety and reuse prevention.
Applications that require needle-choice flexibility or reconstitution call for the user to attach the needle. The Guide-On Needle Cover promotes a proper needle attachment and the Companion Luer Syringe provides the passive safety.
