Low silicone content in SteriCap® Mini Needles (USA) / VitreJect® Safety Needles (EU): about 70% less silicone in 33G SteriCap Mini Needle and 60% less silicone in 31G SteriCap needle than in standard 30G x 1/2” needles.
SteriCap® Mini Needle enables a single-step, safe injection procedure and does not require additional instruments / consumables:
Integrated 3.5mm – 4mm caliper ensures precise and consistent injection site localization, no additional marker needed.
Protective shield keeps the needle covered at all time increasing injection safety.It prevents contact contamination with eye lids / lashes and protects against air-borne pathogens. No eyelid speculum needed which enhances patient’s comfort and compliance.
Sliding shield ensures the consistent depth and orientation of needle penetration.
Twist-locking needle shield / cap reduces the risk of accidental needle sticks.
Small-gauge needles (e.g. 31G or 33G) with large internal diameter are more comfortable for patients and improve safety due to a smaller needle track and reduced risk of drug / vitreous efflux or bacterial influx from ocular surface.
