The QS-K Needle-free injector has a similar work flow as the QS-P, it also a spring powered mechanism. The main difference is that the QS-K is designed to inject Human Growth Hormone (HGH). The human growth hormone is very similar to insulin when it comes to administration, it is treated by injection. However, for children with type I diabetes, the absolute lack of insulin causes children to have 4 or more doses of exogenous insulin once a day, and at least 1460 needles are needed for 365 days a year. There are about 7 million children aged 4 to 15 who suffer from dwarfism and need daily injection of growth hormone in China. The treatment as usual is generally about 18 months, and the total number of injections is about 550 times. Therefore, the problem of “needle phobia” in children has become a major obstacle in the treatment of growth hormone injection. First, the proportion of children treated with growth hormone injection less than 30,000 children due to “phobia “. The second factor is that children’s compliance with growth hormone treatment no more than 60% due to long-term injection, high treatment frequency of growth hormone. Therefore, solving the problem of needle fearing in growth hormone injection may break the dilemma of treatment of dwarfism.
QS-K is a special design injector, it has double cap. One cap is to protect the ampoule to avoid dust and contamination and the middle-part cap is to hide the ampoule to make injection more reassuring. The shape of QS-k looks like a puzzle toy, we hope children won’t be anxious during injection time instead they can enjoy. The second biggest HGH manufacturer has signed exclusive-contract with Quinovare, this helps them to increase their revenue children having a fear of needles will prefer to use needle-free injector as a treatment to inject HGH.
The injection scope of growth hormone is not only for children, but also for adults. The QS-K is also use for anti-aging HGH for adult. In China, all growth hormone manufacturers have begun to declare the anti-aging indications of HGH for adults, and have started the doctor education. With the improvement of national living standards and the rapid development of economy, more and more adults over the age of 40 years is increasing the demand for anti-aging, this group belongs to the group with the excellent consumption power and has a strong purchasing power for needle free syringes, which also makes the sales of growth hormone in the needle free field have more phenomenon space in the next decade.
