Safety System for prevention of needle stick injuries
Gx® InnoSafeTM
Safety Syringes

Integrated and passive safety system for prevention of needle stick injuries

Used syringes with their exposed cannulas are an omnipresent source of danger in doctor's surgeries, labs or hospitals. One careless movement is enough for healthcare professionals to injure themselves with unprotected, used syringe cannulas or to come into contact with aggressive active agents. With Gx® InnoSafeTM, Gerresheimer now offers a safety syringe with an integrated and passive safety system that prevents unintentional needle stick injuries, excludes the possibility of accidental reuse and takes the needs of pharmaceutical companies and users equally into account.

Formats of the safety syringe

1.0 ml long safety syringe
Safety syringe available in 1.0 ml long.

Syringe size

Gx® InnoSafeTM is available for the 1.0 ml long Gx RTF® glass syringes with mit ½“ cannula. Further syringe versions follow.

Production-optimized for pharmaceutical companies

Integrated system

Safety syringe in nest and tub
Safety syringe in nest and tub

The safety system of the safety syringe is installed fully-automatically like a standard needle shield in the clean room onto Gx RTF® glass syringes and checked to 100 percent by visual inspection for potential needle piercing and safety system position. The safety syringes are then packaged, sealed and sterilized with ethylene oxide gas (EtO) including safety system in 100 hole tray (nest) and tub.

No significant changes during pharmaceutical filling

Safety syringe in nest and tub
Safety syringes can be processed without additional assembly steps

The safety syringes with integrated safety system can be processed on existing filling lines without additional preparation and assembly steps.

Safe in production

Safety system of the safety syringe
The Flexible Needle Shield of the safety syringe is avaiable in all customary available elastomers

The design of the safety mechanism of the safety syringe ensures that unintentional activation of the safety syringe during filling, packaging and transport is avoided. The Flexible Needle Shield of the safety system is available in all customary available elastomers for pharmaceutical applications

Optimized to the needs of the user

Ergonomic

Ergonomic sealing cap of the safety syringe
Ergonomic sealing cap of the safety syringe

The ergonomic grip surface of the sealing cap of the safety syringe ensures better hold when removing the safety system protection shield.

Transparent for better control

Safety syringe before injection
The syringe body of the safety syringe is completely visible

The syringe body of the safety syringe is completely visible in order to be able to optimally see and check the presence of the active agent, its purity and the administering.

Safe in use

Safety syringe made of glass before injection
The mechanism of the safety syringe
is not preloaded prior to the injection

Accidental triggering of the safety system is prevented, as the mechanism of the safety syringe isn‘t preloaded prior to the injection. The system is first activated with the piercing of the cannula.

Intuitive operation avoids end user errors

Injection process of the safety syringe
The injection process of the safety syringe remains unchanged

The actual injection procedure is unchanged from that of conventional needle syringes. Following the removal of the ergonomic seal cap with integrated Flexible Needle Shield, the safety syringe is positioned at the injection point, the cannula inserted into the tissue and the active agent injected like with a conventional syringe.

Fully automatic and passive locking

Safety system after injection
Needle protection mechanism of the safety syringe is activated automatically

The needle protection mechanism of the safety syringe is activated automatically without further handling steps by the user. When removing the safety syringe from the injection point the system ensures automatically that the safety mechanism is permanently locked. In this way, the cannula of the safety syringe is reliably covered and reuse of the syringe is excluded.
