Description and history
Unitract is the universal solution to this worldwide challenge, as it offers an affordable syringe that features both auto-disable (AD) and auto retraction technology. And unlike most other conventional or safety syringes, the unique design of Unitract makes it acceptable to all injecting groups including medical staff, diabetics and intravenous drug users. Unitract offers a product that contains the four key elements required to make the perfect syringe:
It is Automatic Disable (AD) to ensure a syringe can only be used once to prevent the transmission of blood borne viruses such as HIV-AIDS and Hepatitis via unsafe injection practices such as the sharing and re-use of syringes and needles;
It is Automatic Retraction to eliminate the risk of accidental needle stick injury to the operator and the general public;
Injections occur in exactly the same way as conventional syringes to maximise user acceptance and minimise retraining costs;
It can be manufactured at a price that is competitive with conventional syringes.
The Company is a listed public company, incorporated and domiciled in Australia whose shares was listed on the ASX on 26 June 1986.
The Company has changed its name to ‘Unilife Medical Solutions Limited’.
On 8 February 2010, the Company was delisted from ASX following the admission of Unilife Corporation (UNS), the successor entity of the Company, to the Official List.
