Makrolon® - a plastic with feeling
Safe and breakproof: Ampoules made of Makrolon®
Injections at home
In the family home, the atmosphere has become much more relaxed now that the unpleasant procedure of giving a member of the family his regular thrombosis injection has been made so much easier. The anxiety and apprehension associated with the needle are now consigned to the past, both for the patient and for the people nursing him. With the aid of a needle-free injection, the medication can now be inserted beneath the skin without any actual pinprick. The INJEX™ injection system uses ampoules made of Makrolon®. For good reason, because Makrolon® is breakproof, does not splinter and is the material of choice whenever optimum quality is called for.
Injections without needles
The era of the unpleasant pinprick is over. Insulin jabs for diabetics, growth hormones for children, anti-thrombosis agents at home: with the Injex system, the liquid medications are filled into the sterile Makrolon® ampoules. The medication is then forced at high pressure through a micro-orifice in the ampoule and into the fatty tissue under the skin almost painlessly. And that makes life a lot easier for patients who need regular injections.
Safety in medical technology
Makrolon® easily resists the pressure and the mechanical loads applied during the injection. Because the high-tech plastic is transparent, the patient can see how much medication is left in the ampoule and whether the injection was complete.
In medical technology, Makrolon® has become indispensable. For example, this high-tech material has also played a major role in dialysis becoming a simple everyday procedure for kidney patients.
You can recognize an excellent product by the Makrolon® label. This high-tech plastic from Bayer MaterialScience gives greater added value. If it's quality you want, you can count on Makrolon®!
