MINNEAPOLIS, August 1, 2018 (PR NEWSWIRE) – ARKRAY USA, Inc., a leader in diabetes care products, announced today the US launch of the Assure® ID Safety Pen Needles. Safety pen needles are designed to protect healthcare professionals and their patients from unintended needlesticks during the injection of insulin.
The Assure ID Safety Pen Needles use a shield that automatically locks after injection, helping to prevent accidental needlesticks. With a broad shield diameter that reduces pressure on the patient’s skin, the Assure ID Safety Pen Needles are designed for smooth needle penetration, reducing discomfort for patients. They are also designed to be compatible with most major brands of injection pens on the market.
"The launch of the Assure ID Safety Pen Needles confirms ARKRAY’s commitment to bringing innovative and affordably priced diabetes products to the US healthcare market," said ARKRAY USA President Jonathan Chapman. "Healthcare professionals and their patients with insulin-dependent diabetes will now have another option to safely deliver insulin injections."
