EpiPen Auto-Injector Touts User-Friendly Features
Dey Pharma L.P.’s (Napa, CA) next-generation, needle-protected EpiPen Auto-Injector provides enhanced patient-friendly features. EpiPen Auto-Injector 0.3/0.15 mg maintains the simplicity, speed, safety, and reliability of EpiPen Auto-Injector with several new, user-friendly features, including being the only auto-injector with needle-protection before and after use.
The next-generation EpiPen Auto-Injector introduces built-in needle protection, making EpiPen the only epinephrine auto-injector with no exposed needle before and after use. Another benefit of the re-designed EpiPen Auto-Injector includes an ergonomically designed, easy-to-grasp oval barrel with illustrated instructions that allow for rapid understanding and proper use of EpiPen Auto-Injector.
The oval shape also prevents the device from rolling out of reach during an emergency. In addition, a one-step, flip-top carry case allows for rapid, single-handed removal. Bright orange colors and arrows to help quickly identify the needle end of the device and reduce the risk of accidental thumb puncture.
“We are very pleased to be launching Dey’s highly anticipated next-generation, needle-protected EpiPen Auto-Injector,” says Carolyn Myers, Ph.D., president, Dey. “The objective of the product’s new features is to give those who carry an epinephrine auto injector some additional peace of mind when it comes to the risk of anaphylaxis. We also hope that those who are at risk of anaphylaxis, but currently don’t carry an epinephrine auto injector, will become as prepared as possible for the risk of allergen exposure.”
EpiPen Auto-Injector is the number one prescribed first-line emergency auto-injector for potentially life-threatening allergic reactions known as anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis can occur when people with allergies to food, insect stings, latex or other allergens come in contact with that allergen.
