K4 Safety Needle Cap

One piece injection moulding,
no cannula, no hub and no glue

The K4 Safety Needle Cap device is a unique, high-quality, anti-needle stick device that exceeds functional standards, and meets global standards. Its novel design, requiring a single mould, offers low costs of production, as well as unique product differentiation and excellent marketing opportunities in a crowded sector. K4 meets the highest standards (OSHA, USA) and ISO and complies with UNICEF and WHO guidelines.

Star is offering an opportunity for non-exclusive licensing for manufacture and distribution.

Product features:

  • Assembles securely to hub and barrel with SMARTFIT
  • Stay-Clean foil cover (with unique branding opportunity)
  • Seamlessly with foil removal folds back to expose the needle for use
  • Unique safety feature as cover can be positioned back to cover the needle for temporary protection prior to injection
  • When needle is removed after an injection the cover can be positioned to cover needle and then locked for full protection over the needle prior to safe disposal

WHO Policy

Safety is at the heart of the new global WHO policy, advocating the rational and safe use of injectables.

WHO policy states: “Millions of people could be protected from infections acquired through unsafe injections if all healthcare programmes switched to syringes that cannot be used more than once.”

This product is part of the solution, fully complying with the new regulations in a cost effective way. Click the button below to read the full WHO Policy.
