Medigard Ltd (ASX-MGZ) is an innovative international company originally founded in 1999 and listed on the ASX in February 2004.

Based in Gold Coast Australia, Medigard has been active in Research and Development, patenting and licensing.

A focus on retractable safety devices for injection and blood collection led to a 2013 exclusive license agreement with Shanghai Sol-Millennium Medical Products Co to manufacture and distribute its BCD and Blood Flash Needle. 

SOL-MILLENNIUM Medical Group is a global healthcare company entity with offices throughout the world and dedicated to the research and development, manufacture and distribution of high quality medical devices that support best clinical practice whilst protecting healthcare workers (and their patients) from the risks associated with needlestick injury.

Medigard receives royalty payments from SOL-MILLENNIUM and continues to undertake R&D and product innovation in partnership with SOL-MILLENNIUM.

The Board of Medigard has also been investigating further avenues to have Medigard reach the heights that would reward stakeholders.

Medigard is presently undertaking a review of business and technology opportunities which could fit within the capabilities and aspirations of the Company’s stakeholders.

Medigard has maintained a prudent approach to investment and costs of its business innovation. At its core, Medigard has sought to serve patients and health professionals with safe and efficacious products that are cost-effective and innovative. Ideally new opportunities will be synergistic and logical extensions of the core values of the company.

Blood Collection Device

The Medigard Blood Collection Device (BCD) features inventive vacuum technology to capture the needle after blood has been collected.

This prevents needlestick injury by eliminating human contact with used needles. It avoids potential aerosoling, a dangerous spray of fluid getting into the air when the needle is retracted.

Medigard's unique BCD is easy to use and technically superior to other safety blood collection devices.

Flash Back Needle

Medigard has designed a Flash Back Needle as a complementary product for the BCD. The Flash Back Needle will be bundled with the BCD.

Flash back needles allow healthcare workers immediate visual confirmation of a successful venipuncture and are expected to become standard attachment for BCDs.
