FDA Clears Hand-Held Disposable Injector for Angiographic Imaging

November 5, 2007 - Pinyons Medical Technology announced it received FDA clearance to market the PowrSyringe Injector, a disposable hand-held device designed to offer ergonomic and mechanical advantages to inject and aspirate fluids including use in angiography.

The Injector’s crossing handles hinge to the syringe barrel and plunger to advance the plunger into the barrel when the handles are squeezed.

The PowrSyringe is designed to bridge the gap between syringes and electronic power injectors.

According to a study on the first in-vivo use of the PowrSyringe presented at the New Cardiovascular Horizons Meeting in September 2007, electronic power injectors concluded that increasing angiographic injection speed can improve image quality, reduce contrast media usage and save hospitals thousands of dollars in contrast media.

The PowrSyringe Injector is expected to be available for commercial sale in early 2008.
