Medical device maker Owen Mumford has introduced Unifine SafeControl, a safety pen needle designed to provide protection from accidental needle sticks and ensure  dosing accuracy.

The product features a push tab to provide one-handed control of the safety mechanism after injection when the healthcare professional is ready to activate. Unifine SafeControl offers visual and audible confirmation as well as dual protection. 

A study in the Journal of Hospital Infection revealed injection pen use correlates with a higher rate of needlesticks among healthcare professionals who give injections. Hidden needles and premature activation are common concerns. Unifine SafeControl addresses those concerns through innovation.Unifine SafeControl joins the company’s portfolio of capillary blood sampling and drug delivery devices. It is available in 5mm 30G and 8mm 30G sizes.
