Becton, Dickinson and Company (BDX) Release: New Disposable Pen Injector Offers Ease of Use as Well as Customization Options for Use With a Wide Range of Injectable Drugs


10/15/2012 7:54:42 AM

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BD Medical, a segment of BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), announced today that the BD Vystra Disposable Pen will be showcased at the 2012 Parenteral Drug Association Meeting in Las Vegas. This new self-injection pen has been designed for use with a wide range of therapies that require frequent, low-volume injections or variable dosing.

BD Vystra Disposable Pen has been optimized for ease of use, comfort and reliability through rigorous ergonomic and quality assessments to ensure an intuitive, confident user experience. Design features of this pen injector include multi-dosing, simple dose dialing and correction with audible clicks, and large and clear dose markings.

"As more patient care shifts to the out-patient setting, self-injection devices must be able to accommodate the requirements of an ever broader range of drugs and patient profiles," said Krista Thompson, Vice President/Global Leader, BD Medical Pharmaceutical Systems, Self-Administration Injection Systems Platform. "With the BD Vystra Disposable Pen, BD has incorporated several customization options to meet these needs, such as variable or fixed dosing and multiple look-and-feel designs. This ability to customize the device introduces a new level of flexibility for drug manufacturers."

With BD's 115-year heritage and extensive drug delivery experience, the Company is also able to offer pharmaceutical customers full-service support with worldwide reach ranging from pre-clinical to commercialization, along with the reassurance of strong IP protection.
