Commitment to Safety
Over the last two decades, Elanco has invested significant resources to ensure Micotil’s safe usage, including materials and training for distributors, veterinarians and producers. Among safety elements offered at no charge:
The Simcro® Sekurus® safety syringe, which has patented technology with self-tenting and needle-guard features. The syringe reduces the chance of accidental self-injection and withstands the most challenging environments at feedyards and stocker operations. To date, more than 30,000 have been distributed.
Extensive safety training is offered to more than 1,750 veterinarians and beef producers each year, including how to respond in case of accidental exposure to the product.
Packaging to further enhance the safety profile, including an outer case that locks the bottle inside.
Also, Elanco has voluntarily discontinued Micotil 300 Injection 100mL bottle in the U.S. due to a review of data that suggests customers utilizing this presentation have a higher incident rate of accidental human exposures.
