Safety needle

NovoFine® Autocover® is designed to reduce needlestick injuries

  • The needle on NovoFine® Autocover® is encased before and immediately after injection, to reduce the risk of accidental needlestick injury for healthcare professionals and patients with diabetes.
  • Accidental needlestick injuries are a serious but common occupational hazard in healthcare institutions, accounting for up to 80% of accidental exposures to blood. 

NovoFine® Autocover® stops needle re-use

Designed to reduce risk of cross-infection

  • NovoFine® Autocover® has a shield that locks in place automatically after use, preventing the needle from being used more than once.

Reduces inflammation and tissue damage

  • Re-use of a dull or damaged needle may increase the sensation of pain and can cause inflammation and tissue damage as needles loose their original sharpness; the smooth silicone coating may be gone, and the tip may be bent.
  • By preventing needle re-use, NovoFine® Autocover® may help avoid these potential problems.
