Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corporation today announced a new partnership with National Medical Products Inc. – developer of the J-Tip Needle Free Injector – that provides patients with an easy-to-use and virtually pain-free delivery of anesthetic medications prior to medical procedures.
Hospitals that use J-Tip can now use Nephron's Pre-filled Buffered Lidocaine glass Luer lock syringes to fill the J-Tip.
"This new partnership is a huge win for patients, and we are extraordinarily excited to announce it," said Nephron CEO Lou Kennedy. "Working together with the developers of J-Tip, we are making sure that the delivery of anesthetic medications is safe, easy-to-use and virtually pain-free because patients deserve nothing less."
National Medical Products Inc. refined the concept of jet injection, a technology previously used by the military for vaccine delivery, to develop the J-Tip Needle-Free Injector. By taking into consideration the depth of injection, energy source, ease of use, and sterility, National Medical Products Inc. was able to create a self-contained, single-use, sterile, subcutaneous jet injector now known as J-Tip. The J-Tip gives anesthetic effect in 1-2 minutes helping hospitals to provide efficient and enhanced medical care.
Working together, the companies hope to reach more hospitals and patients in providing easier ways to use J-Tip and offer a quality pain management tool.
