Detailed Specifications

Compatibility: The original injection molded AO Ampoule Opener, is available for use ONLY with DIN AMPOULES and DIN SIZING European standard ampoules. We’ve recently made advances in our production techniques and are able to manufacture the AO to suit any size or type of ampoule available on the market. Contact our sales team using the form at the bottom of this page for more information.

Standard Sizes Available: 1, 2 & 5 ml DIN

Packaging: Sold individually or as a kit (one ea. 1, 2 & 5 ml)

Performance: AO is a single-part handheld opener designed to open an ampoule on a bench top. The device simply slides down over the ampoule until it is enveloped and resistance is met. Slight additional pressure is applied to AO until a snap is heard. When lifting the AO straight up after the break, the ampoule is revealed exposing the clean break. The neck of the ampoule is temporarily secured in the upper section of the opener for easy disposal.

Sterilization and Reuse: Our injection molded AO is a fully reusable device that can safely open hundreds of glass ampoules before replacement. AO can be purchased in sterilized form or in the non-sterile version – the standard product.  AO can be safely autoclaved at 120 degrees C for 20 minutes, for 20 cycles, before being replaced.

Customization: AO can be custom manufactured for any size and type of glass ampoule made. Please contact a sales representative using the form at the bottom of this page for details. We can make you a custom test version of AO called AOT within 72 hours of receiving your specifications and or samples of your ampoules. Prices range from $15-30 per unit in quantities from 1 to 10. This allows you to test the opener before ordering much lager volumes if needed. Much Larger discounts available as order volume increases.
