Bioject Zetajet: Injections without Needles
Does it sound like Star Trek? Can you give drug injections without needles? You can if you're using jet force propulsion to deliver medications such as vaccines subcutaneously or intramuscularly. Bioject Medical Technologies Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted market clearance for the Zetajet™ Needle-Free Injection Therapy System. No needles! I'm sure kids and moms all over the world will be thrilled. Plus, this reduces risks for healthcare providers too. No needle-stick injuries if you don't have any needles!
