PATH Disposable Syringe Jet Injector (DSJI)
The PATH disposable-syringe jet injector (DSJI) is a sterile needle-free device that uses a single-dose syringe and a pressurized liquid stream rather than a needle to penetrate through the skin and deliver injections to the intradermal, subcutaneous, or intramuscular tissues. The PATH DSJI aims to reduce needle reuse and the associated disease spread due to shortages of sterile needles and trained lab workers. An estimated 23.5 million new HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C infections occur every year through needle reuse and accidental needle stick injuries.
Low resources setting around the world including Brazil, India, South Africa, Cuba, and China. In order to see other countries where it is available the supplier must be contacted.
PATH partners with privately-held manufacturers such as PharmaJet that sell the product to medical dispensaries. PATH is collaborating with partners to assess the appropriateness of DSJIs for developing-country use. Research and evaluation of the device includes studies to test that it is as effective as needle-based injections.
