RAUMEDIC, the development partner and system supplier for polymer-based components and systems in the medical technology and pharmaceutical industry, is investing 27.1 million US dollars to construct a new production center in the US. With the decision to build the US headquarters with development center and clean room production in Mills River in North Carolina, RAUMEDIC provides its North American customers a local service center.
RAUMEDIC sets its course for another positive growth development in the largest and most innovative medical market in the world.

Effective Protection against needle stick injuries – RauSafe®
Needle stick injuries can result in health and financial consequences and are risk factors that have to be taken seriously in doctors' offices, hospitals and in the home care field. Therefore the EU Directive 2010/32/EU for the prevention of needle stick injuries came into force in May 2013.
For this reason RAUMEDIC offers an innovative safety device for injection systems. RauSafe can be adapted to a variety of existing injection systems on the market and provides reliable protection whilst being simple and intuitive to use.
After the injection the active safety device can be simply pushed forward like a telescope. As soon as the needle is completely enclosed, you can hear and feel the system click into the end position.
RAUMEDIC develops customized drug delivery systems which offer better handling, exact dosage, and safer application as well as better patient compliance. Therefor RAUMEDIC reacts to the growing market need for dosing devices that allow an easy and exact drug application.
RAUMEDIC and DS TECHNOLOGY offer a patented system which enables easy and safe dosing of drugs in the form ofmultiparticulates.
Imprecise dosing is prevented through the exact predosing by the pharmacist. Therefore, this system is perfectly suited for the areas pediatrics and geriatrics.
RAUMEDIC is capable to produce and package the plastic components fully automatically. Filling and packaging of XStraw is handled by our partner DS TECHNOLOGY at its fully automatic assembly line.
Another example, which has already been developed by RAUMEDIC together with its customer, is a new dosing syringe with an integrated locking mechanism for the application of liquid drugs. The dosing is adjustable in various steps which permits an individual and exact dosage. 0,5 ml, 0,75 ml, 1 ml, 5ml and 10ml versions of the dosing syringe are currently available.
