Safety Ampoule Breaker

Safety Ampoule Breaker
Ampoules are small glass vessels in which liquids for injections are hermetically sealed.  A typical pharmaceutical ampoule has a narrow neck between a cylindrical body and a conical tip.  They are opened by snapping off the glass top at the neck.  The scoring at the neck does not always break where it is intended.  This is due to the glass re-melding to some degree at the score line.  When the cap is snapped off, glass chips can fly off and a jagged or sharp edge can cut the hands of the healthcare worker.  Safer products exist that remove the risk of broken glass cuts when breaking off the glass top. 


Not sure where to hold the ampoule?  Did you get cut the last time you opened a glass ampoule?    Safer products exist that remove the risk of broken glass cuts while opening glass ampoules.
