A new Adrenaline Auto-injector now available in the UK; Emerade is now available on NHS prescription.
New Emerade autoinjector

You use it in much the same way as the Jext and Epipen by removing the safety cap, pressing to the outer thigh and holding in place for 5 seconds. However you’ll notice the Emerade looks quite different to the others and is all white in colour.

There is a choice of:

  • 150mcg for up to 6 years of age
  • 300mcg for up to 12 year olds
  • 500mcg for the over 12s

Emerade follows the UK Resuscitation Council’s Guidelines for the Emergency treatment of anaphylactic reactions and is fitted with the recommended needle lengths i.e.16mm in the 150 device and 25mm in the 300 and 500 pens.

Benefits

  • Emerade has a 30 month shelf life.
  • Needle is protected after use

And read my experience of using my EpiPen for the first time.

Has anyone been prescribed this pen yet? Has anyone used a trainer pen to see how it works?
I’ve not seen one yet but it’s always good to have some competition in the market, especially with products recalls like Jext last year.
