Passive Safety Needle

Passive Safety Needle

A passive safety needle is a sterile, single-use hypodermic needle with a built-in sharps protection feature. It’s used with a pre-filled syringe for subcutaneous and intramuscular injections.

Passive safety needles are different from active safety needles, which require manual intervention from the user to shield the needle after use. Passive safety needles automatically shield the needle after use, without any intervention. Passive safety features remain in effect before, during, and after use, and do not require activation by healthcare workers. Passive features enhance safety design and are more likely to have a greater impact on prevention.

DropSafe® Sicura™ Passive Safety Needle

The DropSafe Sicura is a sterile, single-use, passive safety injection needle designed to eliminate needlestick injuries and protect against bloodborne pathogens. It is the first fully passive safety needle in North America and is FDA 510k cleared. The Sicura can be used for intramuscular and subcutaneous injections of vaccines and other drugs in combination with a pre-filled syringe.

The Sicura’s passive safety mechanism automatically retracts the needle into the syringe barrel once the medication is delivered. It provides clinicians with confidence in their safety against needlestick injuries and bloodborne pathogen exposure.
