Global medical technology company Becton Dickinson (BD) has launched a glass, pre-fillable syringe for the administration of viscous solutions such as dermal fillers, called the BD Hylok.
According to the company, the BD Hylok luer-lok adaptor (LLA) is strongly affixed, using new bonding technology, and reduces the risk of LLA rotation or disconnection that could potentially cause leakage. The new BD Hylok syringe is currently available in 1ml and additional sizes will be introduced in the future. BD also states that the new syringe is compatible with intravenous (IV) connectors.
Peter Nolan, worldwide president of pharmaceutical systems at BD said, “The recent launch of BD Hylok exemplifies BD’s ability to continuously innovate. By offering a stronger and better connection with needles and IV connectors, this new syringe has an array of medical uses and benefits that will suit multiple needs across the healthcare and medical aesthetic markets.”
