Medi-Dose/EPS announces new metric-only oral syringes meeting ISMP recommendations

EPS has released 3 new styles of oral syringes.  All were designed with METRIC-ONLY markings, meeting the latest ISMP recommendations.

Eight sizes, ranging from 0.5ml to 60ml, are immediately available. Syringes are stocked in either clear – with orange or blue graduations – or in light-protecting, ultraviolet inhibiting amber with white graduations.

Accurate delivery of medication is assured by a rigid O-Ring plunger design. The plunger accurately aligns with the syringe’s graduation markings, allowing for clear visualisation of fluid levels. The syringe and plunger design provide a 10% longer stroke than other styles of oral syringes, ensuring precise accuracy of minute dosages. The offset medication port also aids in many enteral feeding applications.

Hands-free plugging tip caps are included with each case of syringes. The caps create an airtight, watertight seal, securing the syringe’s contents. The cap’s self-righting design minimises unnecessary handling.  And all EPS Metric-Only Syringes are compatible with the company’s Press-In Bottle Adapters.
