Low Dead Space (LDS) syringes are already being used in many countries including the US. This will reduce the waste of medicine and more people can be vaccinated.
Consumer electronics company Samsung has announced to import 1 million low dead space (LDS) syringes. The company has informed that it is doing this work to help in the COVID-19 vaccination campaign in India. This is helpful in reducing vaccine wastage during injection.
LDS syringes reduce the amount of drug left in syringes after injection, thus decreasing vaccine wastage. In this way, 20 percent more people can be fed with the same amount of vaccine. The company said in a statement that this innovative syringes for India are being imported from South Korea under Samsung’s COVID support program. It has already been introduced in some markets including the US.
The South Korean company has already given 3.25 lakh LDS syringes to the district administration in Lucknow and Noida in Uttar Pradesh. Soon, 3.50 lakh LDS syringes will be given to Greater Chennai Corporation in Tamil Nadu. The company said that these syringes will be delivered to the COVID Vaccination Center in these districts.
The technology being used for LSD syringes has shown 20 percent more capacity. This means that if the existing syringes are capable of delivering 10 lakh doses, then it will be able to deliver 12 lakh doses in the same vaccine. Samsung has helped the manufacturers of this syringe to increase production capacity.
Partha Ghosh, vice president and CSR head of Samsung India, said that Samsung stands firmly with the country in this difficult time. In the last few weeks, Samsung has helped the government to give financial grants to buy oxygen concentrators, oxygen cylinders and equipment as it is needed now. He said, “Now that our country is focusing on vaccination, we are helping it through LDS syringes, which will help reduce vaccine wastage.”
