internal diameter of the cannula itself. Using a specially produced tube, Sterimedix is able to control the exact dimensions of the product. In addition, the Company’s state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques ensure absolute consistency between products and the highest level of quality. The Silkann range of


cannulae covers sizes ranging from 18 gauge to 30 gauge, with a choice of cannula length for most gauge sizes. Silkann offers the broadest range of sizes under one brand, allowing the benefits of all the features of the products to be enjoyed by everyone, whatever their cannula of choice. Two indicators have been incorporated in to the design of the Silkann hub to show the orientation of the side port during injection. An arrow mark is aligned with the port to clearly show the port position. Syringe design can vary, and this arrow can be obscured by the luer-lock thread at the nose of the syringe. An additional indicator is therefore available to ensure that whichever way the cannula is being used, there can be no doubt as to the direction of injection. The unique Silkann hub is designed with two features


to reduce the potential for detachment during injection. A screw thread ensures a tight join between the cannula and syringe. Additionally, the hub is manufactured using polycarbonate, a material with a much higher frictional coefficient than standard polypropylene, which will reduce any likelihood of ‘unscrewing’ of the cannula during injection. This is the first and only cannula hub currently available which incorporates all the features of convenience and safety in one product. Packaging performs an important function in


terms of product integrity and appearance in front of the patient. Silkann products are packed in specially designed rigid blisters, with clear labelling conforming to European Directives and other international standards. The blisters are designed to hold one cannula only, or a cannula and ‘pre-hole’ sharp needle together in one convenient pack. The rigidity of the blister protects the products

The unique blister designed to protect products and offering the option for a pre-hole needle to be included


contained inside and reduces the risk of any compromise of sterility. The cannulae are packed in stylish boxes, which will not look out of place in any aesthetic practice and which, of course, meet all the labelling requirements for a surgical device.


Conclusions Sterimedix is very excited about Silkann. The Company believes that it can play an important role in the advancement of aesthetic techniques and by using its unique skills in design and manufacture it can enhance the experience of both patients and practitioners alike.
