Injection Pens & Needles
Patient adherence to treatment regimens improves lives and reduces healthcare costs. That’s why Owen Mumford has invested heavily to design drug delivery devices that are focused on improving patient comfort, ease of use and convenience. We pioneered the first re-useable auto-injector device and automatic insulin delivery pen and have continued to develop our device designs to empower patients and provide greater efficiency in drug delivery.
Our range of injection pens and needles are designed to support self-management and treatment programmes for a variety of conditions and therapy areas including diabetes and multiple sclerosis, and are used by world leading pharmaceutical companies in the delivery of pioneering drugs.
Owen Mumford injection products encourage a good injection technique and are ergonomically designed to be easy to use, even by young users and users with reduced dexterity.
Our range includes:
Automated injection devices that give greater control to patients. Autoject® 2 is an automated injection device for the delivery of parenteral syringe-based drugs. Convenient and easy to use it is also an effective device for patients who have difficulty injecting manually with a syringe, who are worried about needles or have reduced dexterity. At the touch of a button, Autoject®2 administers an injection treatment without the user having to see the needle. It has a one-handed operation, which makes it easy to use on a wider range of injection sites and features a protective cap and locking mechanism to prevent accidental activation.
Owen Mumford does not support or endorse the off-label use of Autoject 2 for epinephrine injections.
The insulin delivery pen that simplifies injections.
Autopen® is a reusable insulin cartridge delivery pen designed to ease the delivery of insulin injections for patients, care givers and healthcare providers. It features a unique side firing mechanism that delivers a pre-defined insulin dosage with minimal force, making it easy to use and effective for younger patients or users with reduced dexterity.
Premium quality pen needles designed for patient comfort.
Unifine® Pentips® pen needles provide patients with a more comfortable injection experience, encouraging adherence to injection regimens. Compatible with all major brands of injection pen, Unifine® Pentips® have triple sharpened, ultra thin gauge needles combined with anti-coring technology and high quality silicon, which results in a pen needle with one of the lowest penetration forces.
The first all-in-one pen needle and remover for easier needle change.
Unifine® Pentips® Plus is a premium quality pen needle with a built-in remover designed to improve patient adherence and encourage good injection routine during self-injection. The preferred and most accurate routine when using injection pens is the immediate removal of the pen needle after injection and replacement with a new needle just prior to injection 1,2. The unique design of Unifine® Pentips® Plus gives patients an empty chamber in which to dispose of a used pen needle immediately after use.
