FDA clears Deltec's safety huber needle:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Deltec has received US FDA 510(k) clearance for its GRIPPER PLUS safety huber needle for delivering medications intravenously through a patient's implanted port. The device incorporates a safety arm that is lifted to lock the needle into a protected position when de-accessing it from an implanted port. An audible click confirms that the de-accessed needle is in its locked safety position. The product, says the St Paul, Minnesota firm, is based on the input of clinicians and on the design of its existing GRIPPER huber needles, over 10 million of which have already been sold worldwide.
