AUTO-DESTRUCT SYRINGE / AUTO-DESTRUCT SYRINGE

AUTO-DESTRUCT SYRINGE

Due to the shortage of goods, a number of people in Africa, China and India have long been recycling and reusing medical waste.Even for those developed countries in Europe, the syringe reuse rate is still as high as 15%. According to the statistics of WHO, approximately 1.3 million people die of cross infection caused by syringe reuse each year.
SYRINGE are developed by simple modification on regular syringes, and they will self-destruct after using. The similar cost of the auto-disable syringes to the regular ones enables them to be extensively used in less developed areas to alleviate the propagation of HIV, hepatitis B, and etc.
