The innovative Luer-Jack syringe is unique through the very simple one-handed operated disconnection function. Based on the leverage effect, the ‘Click and Release’ feature performs faster, safer and more efficient one-handed disconnections from needles and any other medical luer connections, and thereby offer prevention from needlestick injuries. Using only one hand safeguards aseptic technique and could become a vital part of the on-going struggle to reduce the occurrence of hospital-acquired-infections.
