...symbol MEDC, a pioneer in the design and development of safety needle products for medical use.
Not biotech, but considering article in my second link, has already taken wing and could be a real money maker.

Med Design is far from the only competitor in the safety syringe field, for isntance, see

There are a whole bundle of companies using sheath designs, which tend to be relatively complex and hence expensive, and can be uncomfortable. Some of them use the drug more efficiently, which can outweigh the higher cost of the syringe. I'm invested in Medisys plc (www.medisys-group.com, LSE:MDY), who have a simple retractable syringe costing 'in the single digits of cents', FDA approval, and manufacturing capacity for a billion syringes/year ramping up in Q1 2001. They also have a variety of other safety products, such as IV lines. Cost is clearly a major issue, and I'm interetsed in any company that can claim safety syringe costs of <20c - what do MEDC sell for?
