Credence MedSystems is a drug delivery
company focused on delivering medications safely for the benefit of patients,
caregivers and partners. The Companion Safety Syringe System was born from
Credence’s philosophy of Innovation
Without Change. The Companion offers our pharmaceutical and biotech
partners a simplified path to commercialization of a best-in-class drug delivery
system by providing superior safety and usability while using existing primary
Without Change -
The Credence Companion Safety Syringe System
Without Change simplifies the commercialization path for drug
manufacturers while introducing critical innovation in the end device. The
modular approach gives drug manufacturers the freedom to select existing
syringe barrel, stopper and tip cap/needle shield primary package components
from preferred vendors, mitigating much of the development, regulatory and
supply chain risk associated with combination product development.
The Companion needle and plunger rod are
incorporated with the syringe barrel, yielding an end device that features
passive needlestick safety and syringe disabling technology. Upon completion of
the injection, the user receives audible, visual and tactile cues that the dose
has been delivered and then the needle automatically retracts into the barrel
of the syringe, rendering the syringe needle-free and preventing reuse.
Credence shifts the paradigm for conventional
drug-delivery device development, allowing drug manufacturers to provide their
end-users the best safety and usability features that have traditionally been
abandoned due to the time, cost and risk conventionally associated with
implementing innovation. Credence has expanded the Innovation Without Change concept to a platform of products that
includes the Luer Companion where the user attaches the needle, the Staked
Companion where the needle is provided to the user pre-attached, and the Dual
Chamber Reconstitution Safety Syringe, which vastly enhances the safety and simplicity
for the user while offering single-step mixing and injection.
