PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SYRINGE A syringe is a simple piston pump consisting of a plunger that fits tightly in a tube. The plunger can be pulled and pushed along inside a cylindrical tube (the barrel), allowing the syringe to take in and expel a liquid or gas through an orifice at the open end of the tube. The open end of the syringe may be fitted with a hypodermic needle, a nozzle, or tubing to help direct the flow into and out of the barrel. Syringes are often used to administer injections, apply compounds such as glue or lubricant, and measure liquids PURPOSE:A syringe and needle assembly is used to administer drugs when a small amount of fluid is to be injected; when a person cannot take the drug by mouth; or when the drug would be destroyed by digestive secretions. A syringe and needle may also be used to withdraw various types of body fluids, most commonly tissue fluid from swollen joints or blood from veins. MAINTENANCE:Syringes and needles are normally sterile products and should be stored in appropriate containers. Care should be taken prior to using them. The care provider should ensure that the needles have not been blunted and that the packaging is not torn, as poor handling or storage exposes the contents to air and allows contamination by microorganisms. SAFETY:All health care personnel must be offered vaccines against such blood borne infections as hepatitis B and C. Used syringes and needles should be discarded quickly in appropriate containers. If a needle stick injury occurs, it must be reported immediately and proper treatment administered to the injured perso

TYPES OF SYRINGES:-

GLASS VAN SYRINGE:Made from high-quality borosilicate glass, Glass van and Perfecto glass syringes enjoy an undisputed market position on account of consistent standardized quality. The syringes are interchangeable due to micron precision engineering. The barrels are clear glass and not ground, permitting good visibility of the medicament, to permit detection of particulate contamination.

COMPONENTS:BARRELS are made of clear borosilicate glass which conforms to the requirements of the "First hydrolytic class" (Class-I) as per ISO: 719. PLUNGERS are made of borosilicate glass. The bottom end of the plunger is bevelled and colored for easy and accurate judgment of dose. PACKING: The glass syringes are individually packed in duplex board boxes. PRECAUTIONS: GLASSVAN and PERFEKTUM syringes are type-I syringes which are inter changeable within our own manufacture only. The syringes are to be sterilized by autoclaving prior to usage.

DISPOSABLE SYRINGES:“Ribbon” packed Dispo Van & Unolok syringes with out needle & with needle mounted on top, is synonymous with quality. COMPONENTS:BARRELS & PLUNGERS are made of non toxic, medical-grade polypropylene compatible any medication. The nozzle of the barrel is of two types – luer mount and luer lock. Both have a 6% luer taper as per ISO: 594. GASKETS are made of natural rubber which is chemically inert and compatible with any medication. LUER LOCK nozzle present in UNOLOK syringes ensures a secure needle fitment. PACKING: Dispo Van and Unolok single use syringes are individually RIBBON PACKED in a double-laminated plastic film. Ribbon packaging is superior to blister packaging due to higher puncture and water resistance, enabling extended shelf-life under adverse condition. PRECAUTION: Before use, check the integrity of the sealing of the pack. WARNING: Do not attempt to re-sterilize and reuse.

AUTO DISABLE SYRINGES:Auto Disable Syringes as a general healthcare syringe for patient safety in the curative sector, a syringe that breaks automatically if you try to re-use it. COMPONENTS:BARRELS & PLUNGERS are made of non toxic, medical-grade polypropylene compatible any medication. GASKETS are made of natural rubber which is chemically inert and compatible with any medication. LOCK: Presence of ring & lock mechanism which automatically breaks the plunger, if reuse is attempted. NEEDLE: The tip of the needle has a thin wall and 3 facet lancet points. Needle is well silicon zed to reduce friction (for smooth penetration & withdrawal). PRECAUTION: Before use, check the integrity of the sealing of the pack. Do not push the plunger forward before withdrawing medicament from the vial otherwise plunger will get locked.

Medical Glove
Medical gloves are medical safety accessories that ensure sanitary hospital conditions by limiting patients' exposure to infectious matter. They also serve to protect health professionals from disease through contact with bodily fluids. Medical gloves are traditionally made of latex and powdered with cornstarch to lubricate the gloves, making them easier to don [1] Cornstarch replaced Lycopodium powder and/or talc but since cornstarch can also impede healing if it gets into tissues (as during surgery), non-powdered gloves are being used more often during surgery and other sensitive procedures. Special manufacturing processes are used to compensate for the lack of powder. There are two main types of gloves: exam, and surgical. Surgical gloves have more precise sizing (numbered sizing, generally from size 5.5 to size 9), and are made to higher specifications.[2] Due to the increasing rate of latex allergy among health professionals as well as in the general population, there has been an increasing move to gloves made of non-latex materials such as vinyl or nitrile rubber. However, these gloves have not yet replaced latex gloves in surgical procedures, as gloves made of alternate materials generally do not fully match the fine control or greater sensitivity to touch available with latex surgical gloves. High-grade non-latex gloves such as nitrile gloves also cost twice as much, or more than the price of their latex counterparts, a fact that has often prevented switching to these alternate materials in cost-sensitive environments, such as many hospitals.[3] Powder-free medical gloves are also used in medical cleanroom environments, where the need for cleanliness is often similar to that in a sensitive medical environment.[citation needed] Similar but specially tested gloves are used in electronics clean rooms.

MAIN COMPETITORS
1. B.D (BECTON DICKINSON) 2. ROMSONS 3. HI-TECH

B.D (BECTON DICKINSON) As a global leading manufacturer of injection devices, BD is committed to their safe use and Disposal. Reuse of disposable syringes and needles leads to the transmission of blood-borne Pathogens such as hepatitis-B, hepatitis-C, HIV (the virus that causes AIDS), and other Infections, such as abscesses and septicemia. To help prevent reuse of disposable syringes and needles, BD has developed several auto-disable (AD) devices in conjunction with the World Health Organization (WHO) and several other international agencies. The WHO defines “auto-disable” syringes as syringes that are automatically rendered unusable after having delivered a prescribed dose of vaccine.* BD Auto-Disable (AD) devices include the BD SoloShot Syringe Family and the BD UniJect Prefilled Injection Device. BD seeks to support international efforts to reduce the risk of vaccine-preventable disease and infections from unsafe injection practices by providing AD products, as well as training and education. BD hopes our AD devices and services will help ensure the health and wellbeing of future generations. BD’s objective is to provide high quality AD syringes, ensuring that our customers’ needs for performance and service quality are fulfilled and exceeded. We have been successful in doing so, as we have been supplying these devices for more than 10 years, and we have already supplied more than one and a half billion devices to most countries in the developing world and to agencies such as UNICEF, MSF, IFRC, and JICA, among others.
