Unilife has received a two-year contract to supply its Unitract 1mL safety syringes to Premier Purchasing Partners.
Premier is a healthcare alliance which improves performance and provides group contracting to hospitals and healthcare sites.
The Unitract 1mL insulin and tuberculin syringes utilize a combination of automatic and fully integrated safety features to provide optimal protection to healthcare workers and patients at risk of needlestick injuries when injecting a drug supplied in a vial or ampoule.
Upon the full injection of the dose, an audible, tactile click signals the automatic (passive) activation of the needle retraction.
By relieving thumb or finger pressure on the plunger, operators can control the speed at which the needle is withdrawn directly from the body into the barrel of the syringe.
The plunger is then locked to prevent needle re-exposure, tampering or device reuse.
