Masterject The Automatic Animal Injection System MasterJect™,The Self-Injecting Medicating System, is an innovative British product designed for today’s farmer. Its purpose is to allow the farmer or stockman to administer multiple doses of medication in a safe, stress-free and efficient manner. It does this by being able to administer the medication without having to restrain the animal, and from up to a distance of 5′, while on foot or vehicle.
It is primarily intended for cattle.
MasterJect Frequently Asked Questions What animals can I use MasterJect™ on? Masterject™ was designed with primarily cattle and swine in mind, but field testing by veterinarians and farmers has shown MasterJect™ to be suitable for any livestock animal that can be defined as “thick-skinned” or with a heavy muscular mass.
How durable is MasterJect;? MasterJect;was designed by farmers, so it’s tough.From its durable rubber grip, to its rust-resistant coating, MasterJect™ was built to last. Every quality component has been vigorously tested to ensure MasterJect ™will outlast the farmer in the field.Steel housing, high-grade aluminium,industrial-standard springs and top-quality build all ensure you can depend on MasterJect™.
Do you need special equipment to use MasterJect™? No, all you need is the gun itself.It uses Plastipak Luer-Lok® 20ml syringes and 14 or 16 gauge needles.We supply these if required, but you can use your own supply of Luer-Lock; 20ml syringes and the choice of needle is yours to make.We recommend using needles with only aluminium hubs as this is safer for the animal.Also,1 inch and 1.5 inch needles should be used.
Is MasterJect™ difficult to use? Not at all…in fact, its the simplest injection gun available.Simply slot the needle and syringe into the Sure-Ject™ housing, load the medication by pulling the trigger and the gun is ready to inject.The Sure-Ject™ system is on the “open” side of the gun, so there is no need to remove any panels etc to load the syringe.
What about sterility issues? MasterJect™uses disposable syringes and needles, so it can be used for one dose of medication/vaccination, and the syringe/needle can be safely disposed of before loading a new syringe/needle.We do have customers who report that one needle/syringe will last for up to 20 injections, therefore giving an extremely low multiple injection time for herd-work, but the use of MasterJect™ is at the discretion of the administrator.What it does mean however is that, unlike other injection systems, no sterilisation is required of the components, which means that this is not just a one-shot gun (and then having to sterilise), but a multiple injection system. Another important aspect of MasterJect™ is the minimal chance of needle breakage.Once the needle is in place inside the housing, the needles hub is actually re-enforced by the gun’s casing, and the spring-loaded mechanism at the front of the gun acts as both a guide to the injection site and reduces lateral movement of the needle.
