AMC - Ampoule Cutter / ampoule cutter

AMC - Ampoule Cutter
AMC - Ampoule Cutter

When a glass ampoule is cut, it produces glass dust. Glass dust can contaminate the injection, and some nurses have an injury when they cut the glass ampoule. So I have designed an ampoule cutting machine in pen form. It optimizes the cutting of the ampoule size which is used in hospitals most of the time. (1~3ml) When you push the button, the glass ampoule cover is cut by a movement system, and a suction machine works until the nurse takes up the medicine into a syringe. This can prevent glass dust from flowing into the medicine and it is useful for preventing a lacerated wound.
