The BD AutoShield Duo pen needle is a safety pen needle that comes in a 5-mm size to facilitate safer insulin injections.
Featuring patented automatic dual-protection shields on both ends of the needle, it helps prevent needlestick exposure and injury during injection and disposal. Conveniently, the BD AutoShield Duo pen needle is compatible with leading diabetes medication pens
Reduced IM injection risk
By delivering subcutaneous injections, the 5-mm pen needle helps reduce the risk of intramuscular (IM) injections that can increase the risk of hypoglycemia in patients, regardless of their body mass index (BMI)
Thin wall technology
Our needles retain their extremely fine external dimensions but with a wider inner diameter, improving insulin flow rate and requiring less force.
