Syringe Invented That can be used only Once

25 Feb 2012

A doctor of Kerala has invented a Syringe that can never be reused. “The Peanut Safe Syringe becomes absolutely redundant after its first use. Neither the syringe nor the needle can ever be reused. Scavengers will never be able to collect, repack and sell it in the market,” said Baby Manoj, a radiologist from Kozhikode, who invented the syringe.

For his product, Manoj last week received Best Invention Awards for 2011 from the National Research Development Corporation, an undertaking of the science and technology ministry, and World Intellectual Property Organisation at a function in New Delhi.

Manoj has developed a disposable syringe whose needle and barrel can be disabled quickly after injection. He did this by creating a groove around the hub of the syringe to which the needle is connected. After use, a slight manual pressure on the groove breaks the needle and the barrel, which is its critical component.
