The Opportunity

  • Medical Device Market is >$500 billion and growing
  • Market for safe devices to prevent sharps injuries is > $10billion and growing
  • Despite this, the number of NSIs and the consequential human and economic costs continue to increase
  • There is a continuing and strong user pull for safer products to be made available
  • There are opportunities to gain market share in safe device markets
  • We have actively seeking buyers of our disruptive patented technology that address many of the unmet user needs

Current Status

  • Patent of Retraction Mechanism granted in all target markets – USA, China, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, and 7 European Countries (including UK).
  • Patent of Adaptor Concept to decant aspirant granted in USA, Taiwan, Japan, and 7 European Countries (including UK).
  • Designs completed and fully operational samples made for
    – Injection syringes
    – Aspiration syringes
    – Blood Collection Tube Holder
    – Pre-filled syringes
  • Concept Designs for other applications such as Blood Collection Bottles
  • Design of all mass production moulds and selection of other components
  • Complete design of fully automated assembly machine
  • User Trials (UK) and International Independent User Survey

There are Unmet Needs in the Safety Device Market

  • Despite large & growing market for safety devices designed to prevent NSIs, surveys indicate the occurrence of these injuries is at best reducing very slowly whilst others report a growing problem.
  • 2022 EPINet reports that 30% of NSIs in USA occur with so called “safe” devices
  • Risks associated exposure to blood droplets/aerosols are widely recognised but there are no safe devices designed to significantly reduce this type of exposure during device use.
  • Auto-retracting devices are the most effective at NSIs. However, there is very limited availability of auto-retracting devices for aspiration of bodily fluids e.g. blood- the very procedures that are most likely to have blood contamination present on the needle
  • NSIs often occur in emergency or uncontrolled environments- operating rooms, emergency departments and paramedics away from medical facilities. There are no auto-retracting devices that can made immediately safe at any time the practitioner chooses e.g., devices have to be emptied of injectant or vacuum tube removed etc. This often leads to used sharp devices quickly discarded and unsafe whilst the patient needs are attended to.

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 has allowed 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 Platform has also been used to produce 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.
