The Prevent DropSafe Pen

The Prevent DropSafe Safety Pen, introduced in 2019, has been awarded McKesson’s New Product of the Year.

The pen is the first in the United States to use a thin, 31-gauge needle to enhance patients’ comfort. It has a patented needle viewing window to help aid in priming confirmation and the outer cover can be placed on the back-end for dual-end protection for caregivers.

The needle’s maker, HTL-STREFA, is a leading global manufacturer of proprietary capillary blood sampling and drug-delivery devices with core expertise in diabetes and safety sharps.
