Meridian Medical Technologies, Inc. Company Profile

08:15 EST 11th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

Since the 1960s, the company has partnered with and served as a critical supplier for the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). Today, Meridian is the only supplier of FDA-approved auto-injectors containing nerve agent antidotes, and has produced in excess of 185 million auto-injectors for the world market. As Meridian continues to excel on decades of development and manufacturing experience, the company maintains its focus on producing high-quality prescription auto-injectors that meet the demanding operational needs of emergency responders, the U.S. armed forces, and allied military personnel around the world. Auto-injector delivery system platforms and formulations include auto-injectors containing, atropine, pralidoxime chloride, diazepam, morphine and other injectable medications.
Each auto-injector is a pre-filled, ready to use, pressure-activated device designed for the quick administration of a precise dose of medication. Unlike a syringe, which can be cumbersome and time-consuming, Meridian’s auto-injectors provide a compact, quick and portable delivery system. The design’s simplicity, concealed needle, and speed of injection render these auto-injectors well suited for self administration or by a caregiver.
