Anzen Safety Scalpel

MediPurpose to Showcase New, Innovative Anzen Safety Scalpel at MEDICA Trade Fair

Company welcomes distributor and end-user feedback at MEDICA booth 16C20-4

Dusseldorf, Germany, (November 7, 2016) – MediPurpose, the leader in innovative safety solutions for the healthcare market, today announced that it will showcase its new, innovative safety scalpel, Anzen, at the MEDICA Trade Fair, taking place in Dusseldorf Germany November 14 – 16, 2016. 

MEDICA is the world’s leading tradeshow for the medical industry. MediPurpose invites conference attendees to its booth, 16C20-4, to test and provide feedback on the Anzen scalpel, which will be available for purchase in 2017.

According to the CDC, about 385,000 sharps-related injuries occur annually among hospital- based healthcare personnel, which equals an average of 1,000 sharps injuries per day. The operating room is the second most common place for sharps injuries to occur, accounting for 27 percent of injuries.  

With Anzen, which is currently in development, MediPurpose aims to create safer operating rooms with fewer sharps incidents from scalpels and decrease workplace injuries. Anzen will be the first safety scalpel to provide needed safety features without compromising the ease of use and feel surgeons require. The scalpel features a reusable metal handle that will provide surgeons with the weight, balance and control they are used to as well as a protected blade cartridge that is easy to attach and detach, making sharps injury prevention easy and convenient.

“Anzen’s innovative design mimics the weight and feel of a standard scalpel, but has the features needed to help protect healthcare workers from sharps injuries. Mirroring the weight and feel was critical as we wanted to create a scalpel that surgeons could seamlessly transition to,” said Patrick Yi, Founder and CEO of MediPurpose. “The best way to perfect Anzen is through feedback from surgeons themselves. MEDICA provides an excellent opportunity for our production team to tap distributors and end-users to test Anzen and offer their valuable feedback as we prepare for our clinical trials.”

Throughout the conference, attendees are invited to visit the MediPurpose booth, 16C20-4, for a chance to learn more about Anzen and provide feedback on the Anzen safety scalpel prototype in its current state. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to answer a brief survey to share their thoughts on sharps safety and safety scalpels.

MediPurpose Introduces New SurgiLance™ Lite Safety Lancets

MediPurpose Introduces New SurgiLance™ Lite Safety Lancets
THREE NEW 21-GAUGE FINGERSTICK DEVICES EXPAND SURGILANCE™ LITE PORTFOLIO TO SIX MODELS

ATLANTA and SINGAPORE—MediPurpose, a medical product manufacturer and master distributor, today announced that it has introduced three new 21-gauge SurgiLance™ Lite safety lancet models.

The announcement extends the SurgiLance™ Lite portfolio to six models. Originally introduced with three 28-gauge configurations in 2015 as an expansion to MediPurpose’s flagship SurgiLance™ safety lancet brand, the new models include:

SLL21G180 (purple | 1.8 mm penetration depth)
SLL21G220 (lime green | 2.2 mm penetration depth)
SLL21G280 (pink | 2.8 mm penetration depth)
As with the classic SurgiLance, SurgiLance Lite safety lancets are sterile, pre-armed and single-use medical devices that prevent accidental sharps injuries before and after activation. However, because of the SurgiLance Lite’s smaller and lighter form factor, the company said that the eco-friendly device’s carbon footprint will be reduced because it can be shipped more efficiently.

Already cleared by the U.S. FDA, SurgiLance earlier this year received CE Mark clearance to market the medical device in Europe, as well as Health Canada clearance for Canadian distribution.

MediPurpose Gets CE Mark for SurgiLance™ Lite Safety Lancets

ATLANTA and SINGAPORE, Aug. 4—MediPurpose, a medical product manufacturer and master distributor, today announced that it has received CE Mark clearance for SurgiLance™ Lite safety lancets.

The approval permits MediPurpose to market the medical device in Europe, continuing a trend for the brand’s availability in international markets. Last month, Health Canada approved clearance for Canadian distribution of SurgiLance Lite.

SurgiLance Lite safety lancets are 28-gauge fingerstick devices, introduced in the United States in 2015 as an expansion to MediPurpose’s flagship SurgiLance™ safety lancet portfolio. Engineered to minimize pain when performing frequent low-volume blood collections—such as for glucose testing—SurgiLance Lite is available in three configurations, differentiated by their cartridge colors and penetration depths:

SLL140 (yellow/1.4 mm)
SLL180 (gray/1.8 mm)
SLL220 (orange/2.2 mm)
As with the classic SurgiLance, SurgiLance Lite safety lancets are sterile, pre-armed and single-use medical devices that prevent accidental sharps injuries before and after activation.

More Choices for European Safety Lancet Customers
MediPurpose has marketed its classic SurgiLance safety lancet in Europe since 2004. Company founder and CEO Patrick Yi said he is looking forward to providing European safety lancet customers with SurgiLance Lite’s expanded choices.

“In recent years, 28-gauge safety lancets have become increasingly popular because their needles are extremely thin and minimizes pain, which is a very preferable quality for frequent fingerstick users that only require a minimal amount of blood,” said Yi. 

“We believe that SurgiLance Lite offers ideal solutions for this market segment, and we will continue to listen to our European customers to potentially introduce models with other preferred penetration depths and needle gauges,” said Yi. “We are looking forward to it earning the same popularity in Europe as the classic SurgiLance.”
