As a world leader in auto-injector technology, Meridian Medical Technologies, a King Pharmaceutical company, offers a broad range of auto-injector drug delivery systems and drug formulations for emergency medical use. Each auto-injector is a pre-filled, self-contained, 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 ideal for self or caregiver. Since the 1960s, the company has partnered with and served as a critical supplier for the United States Department of Defense. 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.
