Making the announcement, Managing Director of Terumo India, Shishir Agarwal said, “Patient comfort and convenience are critical attributes that have a significant impact on their adherence to therapy. We are delighted to introduce FineGlide to patients and healthcare providers in India as it raises the bar for patient comfort.”

Elaborating on the need further, Ashit Sikka, Senior Director: TPS -India and China said, “With a growing number of patients requiring sub-Q delivery of medication for diverse medical conditions regularly, the need for self-injection is growing significantly, both in India and globally. It is therefore important that patients/ caregivers are empowered to manage drug administration accurately, yet conveniently. We believe that FineGlide provides patients with such a much-needed option.”

FineGlide® is the first product from the Life Care Solutions division of Terumo Medical Care Solutions to be launched in India. Designed as a 3-bevel super sharp needle with a high-grade silicone surface, Fineglide™ is gentle and more comfortable for patients. It’s built with Thin Wall Technology to ensure a greater flow rate and provides better penetration requiring lesser injection force when compared with other alternatives in the market. Compatible with the most commonly available pen devices in India, Fineglide is available in multiple sizes ranging from 4 mm to 12.7 mm in length and 29-32 gauge thickness to suit varied applications.

As an offering of Terumo Corporation, FineGlide brings along a 100-year legacy of trust and care. The needles are available in the Indian market bi-packed with some major pharmaceutical companies along with their products requiring self-administration with a pen device. Now, FineGlide will also be available as a standalone product in all major pharmacies across India.
