Disposable Ampule Cracker

The glass ampoule is widely used in the medical and pharmaceutical industries.  Its use however, by its nature, exposes sharp edges and produces glass shards when snapped open.  In the case of bone cement, keeping glass shards from falling into the cement mix and keeping users hands safe was paramount to our client, Stryker Orthopaedics.  Tri-Power designed and developed an innovative blow-molded bellows covering for the ampoule that not only filtered glass shards, but also provide a protective barrier for user interface.  We fully developed and engineered the “ampoule cracker” and even manufactured blow mold tooling for pre-production development.   Tri-Power’s innovative solution lead to a patent for our client and we are proud to say that we not only met their expectations but created a product for the betterment of users and patients alike.
