Features and Benefits

Reduced risk of needlestick injury (NSI)

The pen needle features shields over both the front-end and back-end needles and does not require a pinch-up.*

OSHA compliance

The pen needle helps meet the OSHA requirement to evaluate safer devices as they become available.1

Single-handed injection technique

To minimize the risk of NSI through a skinfold, the use of shorter (4-mm and 5-mm) pen needles without a skinfold is recommended.2* 

Reduced IM Injection Risk

By delivering subcutaneous injections, the 5-mm pen needle helps reduce the risk of intramuscular (IM) injections that can increase the risk of hypoglycemia in patients.3

Thin Wall Technology

Our needles retain their fine external dimensions but with a wider inner diameter.
