About the solution

As young children, the stress and burden of their life-threatening allergies to a range of common foods cured with their EpiPens so they came with the idea of developing a smaller and more portable type of epinephrine auto-injector.

Auvi-Q™ epinephrine injection, USP is an epinephrine auto-injector equippedwith audio and visual tools that are meant to guide patients through the injection process. The Auvi-Q™ epinephrine injection is used to treat life-threatening allergic reactions in people who are at risk for or have a history of thesereactions. Auvi-Q is approximately the size and shape of a credit card and the thickness of a smart phone, meaning it can be stored in pockets and small purses.
