DMC medical in preparation for the launch of the New SureSafe ™ fully automatic retractable syringe has increased its sales & marketing team in the U.S to four. Our main focus will be on medical device companies, specialty distributors, GPOs & direct hospital sales. Own label option will also be available.
DMC medical was awarded a “Seal of Excellence” by the European Commission under its Horizon 20/20 SME Instrument Phase 1 and the EU Framework Programme for Research & Innovation 2014-2020. The seal of excellence was awarded for our work on the silicone free stopper, advanced copolymer materials and retractable technology.
Research & Development continues in the areas of silicone free stoppers, advanced copolymer materials for the prefilled market in conjunction with automatic retractable technology.
DMC medical has increased its presence and customer awareness though its participation in exhibitions in the United States. Between 2018 and 2020 DMC medical will have exhibited at FIME in Orlando and Miami & the MD&M in Anaheim, California.
DMC medical received its CE certification for the CE marking of the polycarbonate syringe on the 5th of April 2019. Certification was awarded by MedCert GmbH.
This allows DMC medical to expand its polycarbonate market throughout Europe.
DMC has now launched a dedicated website for the NuGen™ BPA free syringe, which outlines the many advantages sought by the prefilled drug market in replacing glass syringes/vials.
DMC will undertake a major marketing campaign beginning in August 2017 for the Nugen™ syringe range. The prefilled drug market is seeking alternatives to glass syringes/vials with suitable polymers that are BPA free, chemical & lipid resistant with added toughness and glass-like clarity. The Nugen™ syringe is a suitable and cost-effective alternative. DMC will target the major pharma companies in both Europe and the United States currently prefilling drugs and seeking a superior polymer syringe.
The SureSafe™ 3ml automatic retractable syringe receives its first approval for the vaccination market in the U.S.
Enquiries increase for the BPA Free Nugen™ syringe with evaluation samples going to the United Kingdom, Turkey, Spain, Russia and the United States. Validations can take a number of months depending on what use the syringe is put to and the drug involved.
In collaboration with the materials science department of the University of Limerick and a leading materials scientist in the U.K., DMC is conducting a series of tooling and material experiments in the coating of syringe stoppers suitable for the prefilled drug market.
As a result of its classification as “reprotox 1B”, which entered into force in August 2016, BPA formally meets the criteria for identification as a Substance of Very High Concern. In December 2016, ECHA’s Member State Committee (MSC) agreed to identify BPA as SVHC, based on its harmonised classification.
The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) lists BPA under Proposition 65 Warnings.
