K-Pack Surshield™

Needle with Passive Sharps Protection


Dedicated to the pharmaceutical industry, K-Pack Surshield™ is a hypodermic needle with an integrated sharps protection
feature for use with (pre)-filled syringes. The device geometry is designed to allow for automated manipulations during the
packaging process, making it ideal for bundling and inclusion into the secondary packaging of parenteral medication by subcutaneous or intramuscular injection.


User criteria and benefits:

  • Truly passive system; easy to use sharps protection
  • Efficient and permanent cover of the sharps
  • Not possible to skip a crucial step to activate
  • Needle sharps not exposed, before, during and after injection
  • Does not require more time to use
  • Clear view of syringe contents and access to syringe label
  • Permanent and visual indication of activation
  • Ergonomics appropriate for injection technique


Manufacturing perspective:

  • Compact design, individually packed, requiring minimal space
  • Product configuration suited for automated manipulations
  • Colour coding on tamper-evident label, for in-line product detection by vision systems
  • Does not require an additional assembly step (less investment compared to add-on systems)
  • Own regulatory status as a medical device (time-to-market)
  • Safety feature activation does not require interaction with the syringe; does not affect the syringe performance (e.g. dose accuracy)
  • Provided by a global operating company with core competences in needle manufacturing​
