There is an Unmet Need in the Safety Device Market

  • Auto-Retractable devices are the safest and premium price products
  • Annual sales of auto-retracting syringes for injection only exceed $1Bn
  • Aspiration is the riskiest procedure for potential transfer of infection from an NSI
  • There is no auto-retracting syringe on the market for aspiration
  • The potential market in this area has a value of approximately $100 million

Why C-Major Medical’s Concept is different

The C-Major Medical product has a set of features that are not available on any auto-retracting syringe currently on the market. This enables it to be used for aspiration and all the procedures where standard non-safe syringes are currently used.

The use of a Patented Platform Technology will also allow the company to produce an auto-retracting version of a tube holder which can be used with standard vacuum blood collection tubes. This is another area of the market which is currently under-served. The technology could also in the future be used in other areas of the market such as pre-filled syringes.

The key features are:

Suitable for aspiration

Suitable for Intra-venous injection

Anti-splutter retraction control

Uses standard Needles and Needle can be changed.

The table below shows the C-Major Medical Design Features for aspiration compared to the other safety solutions currently on the market. Only the C-Major Medical design can offer all the detailed features and benefits, which will bring extended safety into the riskiest of procedures.
