NeoMed is excited to unveil NeoConnect® at Home™, a reusable portfolio of ENFit syringes that do not require a physician’s prescription. As a leading ENFit solution provider, NeoMed is dedicated to making it easier than ever for home patients to access the ENFit syringes they need.
The NeoConnect® at Home™ line of ENFit syringes is the first of its kind to be available over the counter (OTC) AND FDA 510(k) cleared for reuse. Ideal for patients in non-clinical and homecare settings, each syringe may be hand washed and reused up to 20 times by one user when cleaned per the cleaning instructions provided with the syringe. Reusability allows for a cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative to single use ENFit syringes.
The syringe portfolio will be available in four convenient sizes (3 mL, 6 mL, 12 mL and 60 mL). Complete with a durable polypropylene plunger and silicone O-ring gasket, the syringes will feature clear barrels with easy-to-read black markings and will be offered in consumer-friendly case quantities. The product line will be available for purchase through retail and online stores, DME’s and homecare companies in the fall of 2019.
ENFit is the registered trademark of the Global Enteral Device Supplier Association (GEDSA) and is commonly used to identify ISO 80369-3 compliant connectors. ENFit connectors help reduce the risk of enteral tube feeding misconnections and improve patient safety. GEDSA encourages manufacturers to introduce enteral devices with ENFit connectors, and healthcare facilities to adopt feeding systems with ENFit connectors as soon as possible.
“The development of our NeoConnect® at Home™ line of OTC reusable ENFit syringes is a direct result of feedback from customers concerned about ENFit syringe access and availability. Not only have we made our syringes more accessible, we’ve added value by ensuring they can be reused. It is our hope that ENFit syringe OTC availability and reusability will make enteral feeding and medication delivery hassle-free and cost-effective,” said Marc Waldman, Vice President of Business Development at NeoMed.
“We are proud to be the first in the industry to offer reusable ENFit syringes that are available without a prescription. We believe that this innovation will improve ENFit device access and advance the worldwide adoption and implementation of safer enteral connectors,” remarked NeoMed President Aaron Ingram.
