SAN-DV for Use with Drugs in Vials

For use in combination with drugs in vials, the SAN-DV was designed as a fully disposable automatic needle with an integrated vial adaptor for easy drug reconstitution or mixing. It delivers all the benefits of the SAN-L product family: It reduces the anxiety and the perceived pain of the self-injecting patient by allowing control of how the medication is administered.

The SAN-DV has the best of both worlds: like an autoinjector, SAN-DV reduces patient anxiety and is easy to use. Additionally, SAN-DV simplifies the reconstitution process and allows the patient to control the speed of the injection, which has been shown to reduce the perception of pain.

This product is under development.
