Increased Syringe Performance Means Increased Patient Comfort
Most physicians agree - of all the services that can be performed for patients, eliminating the pain and fear of injections is at the top of the list. How can pain be minimized? One approach is to maximize syringe performance - whether the syringe is employed by a clinician, in an autoinjector, or in a wearable device. A critical element of syringe performance is the break-loose force. This is the force needed to overcome the plunger inertia in a filled syringe to initiate plunger movement and introduction of drug product. A lower, more consistent, break-loose force can provide for increased patient comfort.
