"The vial and syringe injection process is inefficient for healthcare workers," said Mark Sebree, President, BD Rx. "With the new BD Simplist ready-to-administer, prefilled injectables, BD is aiming to redefine injectable drug administration practice. BD envisions safe patient care and efficient clinical applications and believes this is the future of injectables."
BD Rx plans to launch 20 to 30 drugs in BD Simplist prefilled injectables over the next few years and is targeting injectable drugs in doses most commonly relied on by clinicians in both the hospital and surgical center settings.
The financial impact of BD Simplist prefilled injectables for fiscal year 2013 will not be material and was contemplated in our fiscal year 2013 guidance.
