This article was originally published in Clinica
Recent needle safety legislation in the US is helping Deltec, a St Paul Minnesota unit of London, UK-based Smiths Group's medical division, to generate new business. The company, which makes a range of devices for use in ambulatory infusion, has just secured a 34-month contract to supply the US Premier group purchasing organisation with its Gripper Plus safety huber needle, which was launched in 2002. The needle delivers medications, fluids, blood and blood products through an implanted port, and features a safety arm that locks the needle into a protected position as it is removed from the port. Premier is an alliance of about 1,500 hospital and healthcare facilities.
