Droplet Micron Launches Expanded Indication and OTC Availability

Droplet Micron

We are thrilled to announce exciting updates regarding the Droplet Micron 34G x 3.5mm pen needle from HTL-Strefa, a member of the MTD Group. Droplet Micron has received expanded approval from the US Food & Drug Administration, allowing for broader indications of use and a shift from prescription-only to over-the-counter availability. This will benefit patients who can now utilize the thinnest and shortest pen needle that exists in the United States to inject medications other than insulin.

Expanded Indication for Use: Droplet Micron is now indicated for the "subcutaneous injection of drugs," expanding its use beyond insulin to include medications such as GLP-1s and more. This enhancement broadens treatment options and patient accessibility.

OTC Availability in the USA: In alignment with regulatory changes, the "Rx Only" designation will be removed from Droplet Micron packaging in the USA. This modification streamlines access to our pen needles, enabling distribution through pharmacies and e-commerce where permitted by state/provincial regulations. Droplet Micron OTC with expanded indication can be found on Amazon (state regulation permitted) and will shortly be available in multiple national retailers. 

Droplet Micron is the shortest and thinnest pen needle, and it was designed with patients in mind, to provide the best injection experience. Its cutting-edge technology reduces the penetration force by up to 50%, which often translates into a less painful injection. Trusted by millions worldwide and highly rated by users, Droplet Micron continues to set the standard for safe, reliable, and comfortable injections.
