South Africans eager for the launch of a less expensive, revolutionary auto-injector

Breaking news in May 2018 was that a team of South African biomedical engineers have built a reusable, less expensive auto-injector that accepts epinephrine cartridge refills that could revolutionise the emergency treatment of anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction that can be triggered by food or insect bites.

Since then the engineers have been working hard to get this product launched in South Africa.  Please see below latest product update.
