Unifine® Pentips® is a range of pen needles developed to provide patients with a comfortable injection experience. Fifty-seven percent of people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes intentionally skip insulin injections and a key factor is the fear of pain1.
Unifine® Pentips® pen needles are designed to lower penetration force to support patient comfort and reduce the sensation of trauma.
Unifine® Pentips® are designed to deliver improved comfort during the injection experience by focusing on four areas:
- Precision sharpened needle tips designed to reduce penetration force
- Thin wall technology to improve drug flow, aiding less thumb force and time to deliver the dose, reducing the risk of thumb arthritis2
- Anti-coring treatment at the rear of the needle for clean piercing of the drug cartridge with no fragmentation for effective drug delivery
- Advanced silicone lubrication designed for a lower glide force – Reducing friction between the needle and patients’ skin, for smoother entry and removal of the needle
Unifine® Pentips® is available in the following needle lengths and gauges; 4mm 32G and 33G, 5mm 31G, 6mm 31G, 8mm 31G and 12mm 29G – and are compatible with all major diabetes medication pens. They are double sealed for complete protection during fitting.
