AUTOJECT 2 - REUSABLE AUTOINJECTORS FOR USE WITH A WIDE RANGE OF SYRINGES INCLUDING SAFETY SYRINGES

The Autoject 2 reusable autoinjector hides the needle prior to injection and has a passive safety mechanism to prevent accidental firing. Injection depth can be variable or fixed and a function for needle shield removal may be incorporated. At the press of a button, the syringe needle is automatically inserted and the drug is delivered. Upon completion of injection visual indication is provided to confirm that the full dose has been delivered.

AUTOJECT MINI - REUSABLE OR DISPOSABLE AUTOINJECTORS

The Autoject Mini is a reusable or disposable autoinjector for use with pre-filled glass syringes. The simple design of this automatic injection device lends itself to the customisation of features, providing great flexibility and creativity within the basic function. It offers needle shield removal, automatic needle insertion and injection to a specified depth, a safety mechanism to prevent accidental firing, an option to incorporate a needle shroud to prevent the user from seeing the needle after injection and an option to include visual indication of injection completion.

AUTOPEN - AUTOMATIC INJECTION PEN

The Autopen is a reusable, variable dose, automatic injection pen for use with 1.5ml and 3ml cartridges. This device offers a unique mode of delivery via a side-mounted trigger - facilitating ease of injection, and making it particularly suitable for children and patients with compromised dexterity. The device allows for confident, accurate dose selection, with its easy-to-dial function and audible indication. The Autopen has been thoroughly tested and meets the dose accuracy requirements of ISO11608-1, pen injectors for medical use part 1.

MULTIAUTOJECT - MULTI-DOSE DISPOSABLE AUTOMATIC INJECTION DEVICE

The Multiautoject is a pre-set, multi-dose, disposable automatic injection device for use with a 3ml cartridge and removable pen needle. In just three simple steps the device automatically inserts the pen needle and delivers a single fixed dose of drug. It incorporates a spring loaded needle shroud to cover the needle after use, and features a large window for visual inspection of the drug prior to use. After each injection visual confirmation of full dose delivery is provided. The Multiautoject meets the dose accuracy requirements of ISO11608-1, pen injectors for medical use part 1.

SNAPDRAGON - SINGLE-USE DISPOSABLE AUTO INJECTOR

The Snapdragon is a single-use, disposable, safety injection device for use with a pre-filled 1ml long glass syringe. This automatic injection device is designed to be a combination product. In only three steps the syringe needle shield is removed, the safety mechanism is de-activated, the needle is inserted and the drug is injected. Simply pushing the device against the skin activates automatic injection. Upon completion of injection visual indication of full dose delivery is provided and on removing the device from the injection site a lockout safety shroud is passively activated to prevent accidental needlestick.

All device platforms are CE marked and carry a 510k. Owen Mumford is compliant with ISO13485, FDA CFR 820, Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC Annex II (excluding section 4) and Annex V and CMDCAS.

Mount Owen, located in the Upper Hunter Valley of New South Wales, 20km north of the township of Singleton, was the first coal mine in Australia to operate under a ‘partnering’ agreement.
A unique cantilevered stacker supplies dewatered coal products to a 300,000t stockpile. From this, coal is loaded into unit trains at a rate of 4,000t/h using a specially designed, automated batch weighing system that gives an accuracy of 0.05% per wagon.
Mount Owen is a shovel-and-truck open pit, relying on hydraulic excavators for both overburden stripping and coal production. The dipping structure of the deposit means that the pit is laid out with benches spaced at regular vertical intervals.
Owen Mumford auto injectors are compatible with a wide range of pre-filled glass and plastic syringes, and pre-filled cartridges.
Automatic injection devices simplify self-injection, overcome user dexterity issues and reduce needle phobia.
