In veterinary practices, particularly in surgical facilities, several barbiturates used for the pain management of animals are supplied in glass ampoules. Vet technicians and veterinarians are required to open these glass ampoules in order to extract contents for injection to the animals in their care. If these ampoules are opened by hand or by using other ampoule openers in the market, vets are running the risk of getting injured from broken glass or losing some of the compounds contained inside.
We have supplied many veterinary facilities with our 1ml AO Ampoule Opener, perfect for Buprenex, which is supplied in this glass ampoule size.
