Innovation in
valve technology

The principle application of the patented Capa Valve technology is in the reconstitution
and dispensing of liquid-liquid or liquid-solid combinations where the application
requires that these products are contained separately before dispensing

Creating easy to use delivery devices for the ever-increasing Combination Drug Market.

The following series of video footage illustrates the comprehensive functionality afforded by the Capa Valve in a medical syringe application. Each embodiment uses a standard syringe with a Capa Valve installed to provide the desired functionality.

The Capa Valve can be sized to fit any size syringe (1ml to 150ml), the fully functional prototypes shown below use the more common size syringes (1ml, 3ml and 5ml) which comply to the BS EN ISO 11608-1:2012 standard for medical syringes.

Container Closure Integrity.

The Capa Valve solution for creating a dual chamber device from any size standard syringe has excellent Container Closure Integrity (CCI) due to the way in which the valve and sealing mechanism is configured.

Pioneering products that will shape the future of Intravenous Administration.

To illustrate further the permutations and combinations possible with the Capa Valve, two of the above embodiments have been combined to provide an arrangement for reconstitution of a lyophilised drug with a diluent which is then subsequently mixed with a second liquid ready for dispensing – both liquids and the lyophilised drug are prefilled within a standard 5ml syringe.

Key benefits to the Medical and Animal Health Community

1: Patient Wellbeing

Minimising discomfort & risk to the individuals being injected.

2: Environment

More environmentally friendly as there is less medical waste produced in the process.

3: Storage

Reduced storage costs as less space is required to house the equipment

4: Logistics

Reduced transportation costs as there is less packaging and lighter, smaller shipments to be made.
