The Next Generation of Low Dead Space Disposable Syringes
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (PRWEB) March 20, 2018
QD Syringe Systems, LLC. is readying to launch a redesigned fully functional basic syringe, the Quick Draw Syringe. The Quick Draw Syringe (or QD Syringe) is a groundbreaking medical product that is the next generation of low dead space disposable syringes. This eco-friendly syringe is an easier, safer alternative for medical professionals to use than the outdated and sometimes hazardous and wasteful syringes currently available. QD Syringe is simple – open the package and it’s fully functional.
“There are billions of detachable steel draw needles floating around hospitals. Detachable steel draw needles are dangerous, wasteful and a high liability risk product. QD Syringe is the next generation solution of safer and more effective syringes because it’s fully functional and eliminates all draw needles,” says Christopher Green, CEO and co-founder of QD Syringe Systems.
QD Syringe Systems has now created a BPA-free acrylic dual channel draw down tip. This innovative design allows the medication to be completely drawn out of the vial. This design is especially vital since BPA, a chemical used in many plastics, has been shown to cause adverse health effects.
Nationwide, basic syringes haven’t had a design change in decades and while they work, they aren’t as effective as they could be. The basic Luer Lock syringe is essentially dependent on two needles with hubs, one to draw the medication into its chamber and the second to deliver the medication to its intended target. Current basic syringes waste costly medications, often leaving up to 84 microliters of residual medication volume in the syringe tip and hub after patient delivery, up to 42 microliters in its draw needle and up to 42 microliters left in the vial. This means up to 168 microliters of expensive medication is wasted. With the Glyflo Technology™, the QD syringe has a uniquely patented cone-shaped tip with channels which allows the QD Syringe to extract all of the medication necessary from rubber stopper vials and to deliver that costly medicine to patients effectively. In comparison to current syringes, we are in confident that the Glyflo Technology™ will be able to reduce the dead space below 35 microliters. This significantly reduces wasted vial and draw needle medication, saving millions of dollars annually.
Green adds, “Our team has also created the Quick Draw Low Dead Space Blunt Plastic Cannula. This GlyFlo Technology™ allows for the universal connection to all syringes with a slip-tip or Luer Lock. This ensures that all vial medications, including thick medications, can be drawn down efficiently and successfully administered to patients. This method prevents waste of medications and is safer for the patient as well as medical personnel.”
Because of the high dead space in current basic syringes, blood can linger on the tip and inside of its hub which has been shown to encapsulate dangerous pathogens for up to six weeks. However, the QD Syringe has a blunt tip with bilateral drying channels (like an inside out needle), causing blood not to pool which makes it much safer for medical experts and reduces the spread of infectious diseases.
