MedAmicus has filed a 510(k) application with the US FDA for clearance to sell its centre-line, retractable safety needle, which is designed to introduce a guidewire into the vascular system. The device retracts into a protective sheath while still in the patient, eliminating the risk of needle stick injuries, said the Plymouth, Minnesota company. The product was licensed from and co-developed with Med-Design of Ventura, California.
