Medi-Dose/EPS announces new metric-only oral syringes meeting ISMP recommendations

Medi-Dose / EPS has been working with pharmacists and nurses to develop cost-effective solutions that promote medication safety and error prevention.
Medi-Dose syringes

EPS has released 3 new styles of oral syringes.  All were designed with METRIC-ONLY markings, meeting the latest ISMP recommendations.  Eight sizes, ranging from 0.5ml to 60ml, are immediately available.  Syringes are stocked in either clear – with orange or blue graduations – or in light-protecting, ultraviolet inhibiting amber with white graduations.   

Accurate delivery of medication is assured by a rigid O-Ring plunger design.  The plunger accurately aligns with the syringe’s graduation markings, allowing for clear visualisation of fluid levels.  The syringe and plunger design provide a 10% longer stroke than other styles of oral syringes, ensuring precise accuracy of minute dosages.  The offset medication port also aids in many enteral feeding applications.  

Hands-free plugging tip caps are included with each case of syringes.  The caps create an airtight, watertight seal, securing the syringe’s contents.  The cap’s self-righting design minimises unnecessary handling.  And all EPS Metric-Only Syringes are compatible with the company’s Press-In Bottle Adapters.
