The AH safety Ampoule holder is designed to minimize drug mix-ups; hold ampoules securely during procedures; and reduce ampoule breakage during busy working conditions. AH is fully sterilizable, impact resistant and is fast to assemble.
The standard unit holds x 3, 20ml DIN ampoules, x 3, 10 ml; x 4, 5 ml & x 4, 1ml or 2 ml ampoules.

Blunt Filter Needles

We offer for purchase premium Blunt filter needles and filter straws from the Millennium and Braun companies.

Blunt filter needles and filter straws: Individually sterile packed.

Blunt filter needles or filter straws should always be used when removing drugs or compounds from an opened glass ampoule. The use of these devices prevents glass fines from being taken into the syringe and the possibility of injection into a patient. When opening glass ampoules there is always a risk of glass fines occurring, even though our openers are designed to limit this happening. Using filter needles or straws is a safety precaution that is always recommended by IH.
