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.

Pre-filled Dual Chamber Liquid-Liquid Premix Delivery
Pre-filled Dual Chamber Liquid-Viscous Liquid Premix Delivery
Pre-filled Dual Chamber Liquid-Solid Premix Delivery
Container Closure Integrity.
The Capa Valve solution for creating a dual-chamber device from any size standard syringe has excellent inherent Container Closure Integrity (CCI) due to the way in which the valve and sealing mechanism is designed and configured
Pioneering products that will shape the future of injectable drug delivery.
To illustrate further the permutations and combinations possible with the Capa Valve technology, two of the above embodiments have been combined to provide an arrangement for premixing a solid drug with a diluent for injection, the presence of a second valve affords the ability to also sequentially flush all within a single syringe.
Again using two valves as above three separate chambers can be configured to enable the sequential dispensing of three separate liquids. This is especially useful when a pre and post flush is required for injecting a liquid drug:
Key benefits to the Medical and Animal Health Community
1: Patient Wellbeing
Minimising discomfort & risk to the individuals being injected.
More environmentally friendly as there is less medical waste produced in the process.
Reduced storage costs as less space is required to house the equipment
Reduced transportation costs as there is less packaging and lighter, smaller shipments to be made.
