Needle-Trap protection system.

The Needle-Trap system is designed to protect healthcare providers from accidental needlestick injuries from disposable syringes. The Needle-Trap system features a safety mechanism integrated as a component of the self-adhesive syringe label. This compact design allows the blood-contaminated needle to be simply and safely secured following its use, and can be easily operated by healthcare personnel in a controlled, single-handed fashion. After the needle has locked into the plastic trap--an action clearly perceptible by a clicking sound--it is irreversibly protected. It can be easily integrated into conventional packaging and labeling systems, since it is processed and dispensed like a single-layer label. Needle-Trap requires no additional storage space and is housed in common secondary packaging. * Schreiner Medipharm, Blauvelt, NY 10913. www.schreiner-medipharm.com or call 845-848-9000
