Owen Mumford (Oxford, UK) is once again exhibiting at this year’s MEDICA in Düsseldorf, Germany where it is presenting tomorrow’s medical device technology today. Attracting several thousand exhibitors from more than 50 countries, MEDICA is the world’s largest event for the medical sector, where each year, leading individuals from the fields of business, research, and politics converge alongside tens of thousands of decision-makers.

At MEDICA 2022, Owen Mumford is showcasing its pioneering products from three different ranges: safety pen needles, venous blood collection set and capillary blood sampling devices. The company’s portfolio of safety pen needles for insulin injections includes the Unifine SafeControl device which is designed to protect healthcare professionals, balancing both safety and control during the injection process. Compatible with all major brands of injection pens, it is available in a variety of sizes and features a manual push tab for easy, one-handed activation of the safety mechanism. It has both a visual and audible confirmation that the safety mechanism has been activated, making it a dual safety pen needle.

Among Owen Mumford’s featured products at MEDICA is its Unistik Touch safety lancet featuring ground-breaking comfort zone technology which helps to minimize the pain of capillary blood sampling. Unistik Touch safety lancet is designed to make capillary sampling as simple and seamless as possible. With one-touch activation, users can simply press the device against the sample site, allowing it to activate automatically under pressure. Once activated, the needle retracts into the body of the device, minimizing the risk of re-use, cross-infection and injury. At MEDICA 2022, Owen Mumford is also showcasing its recently launched venous blood collection portfolio consisting of new devices such as, the Unistik ShieldLock and Unistik VacuFlip. This range provides safety, comfort and quality for healthcare professionals when performing venous blood collection procedures.
