East Providence, RI USA – October 30, 2018 – Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN) and the world’s leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, announces its entry into a new market with the introduction of a comprehensive line of disposable dosing syringes for animal health products such as veterinary pharmaceuticals and nutritional supplements.

EFD leverages more than 50 years of experience in precision molding processes for its industrial fluid dispensing components to deliver high-quality, advanced primary packaging and controlled drug delivery syringes to the global animal health market.

Its industry-leading Dial-A-Dose™ syringes provide an innovative solution for end users to customize multiple doses for an animal based on the product manufacturer’s specified treatment calibrations such as milliliters, cubic centimeters, the animal’s weight, etc. An integrated ring allows users to “dial in” and administer the correct dose. Nozzle caps allow users to securely reseal the syringe until its next use.

EFD’s Posi-Dose® syringe, designed for equine oral deworming treatments, features a unique twist-lock ring that snaps into position to set specific dosing volumes. Its nozzle-free design ensures positive confirmation that every dose is completely administered. It too can be re-sealed for multi-dose use.

In addition, Nordson EFD offers a wide variety of dosing syringe sizes (6cc to 100cc volumes) and nozzle types for oral, topical, and intramammary uses. One-piece and two-piece plungers without “dialing” mechanisms are also available.

“Our comprehensive line of animal health dosing syringes can be used in a variety of bovine, equine, and companion animal treatments,” said Mark O’Shea, Global Product Line Specialist at Nordson EFD. “All of them are molded from 100% FDA-approved resins. Most feature a unique “lead-in” aid that accommodates high-speed filling by simplifying the plunger insertion process. And some feature an innovative, self-venting feature that prevents air entrapment for accurate, reliable dosing.”

Custom stamping marks, colors, syringe sizes, and product designs are possible. Customers can also request in-mold labeling or standard labeling for their EFD dosing syringes.
