What is NovoFine Needle Remover? 

The NovoFine Needle Remover is designed to remove needles from your insulin pens without the need for direct contact. It works because of its special cap that fits over the needle, gripping it tightly so you can just twist it off with ease. Once the needle has been removed, press the button on the device to eject the needle straight into a sharps bin.

 

How should you dispose of needles?

If you use needles to inject medicine, for conditions like diabetes for example, it’s your responsibility to ensure that they’re disposed of safely. You shouldn’t dispose of needles in a general waste bin as they can be dangerous and carry blood-borne viruses such as HIV and hepatitis. 

 

They need to be disposed of in a sharps bin, which is a specially designed box with a secure lid that you can get on prescription from your GP or pharmacist. Some local councils or hospitals may be able to accept your full sharps bin but always check beforehand. 

 

Storage information

Store in a cool, dry place out of sight and reach of children. Never put needles or sharp objects into regular household waste. Not only can needles cause injuries, but used needles may carry blood-borne viruses that could be passed onto others, such as HIV and hepatitis B and C.
