I've used it and it's a good item / Lo he usado y está bien.
very easy to use, reduces risk of accidentally breaking the ampoule and cutting yourself.
Gave in and bought one after cutting fingers on ampules for one too many days in a row, I have not cut myself since using the SnapIT, it's easy to use and clean, every workplace should stock these!
(for personal use) i own a plastic and an aluminum and have gifted one of each as well. the aluminum is much sturdier. they are very good and do the job. last years. don’t have to worry about cutting myself on the glass.
Pandemic supply shortages forced me to purchase ampules of medication for my practice. Thankfully, with this simple, affordable, intuitive device I am able to ensure my staff do not incur any work place injuries due to this supply change

Can SnapIT Personal be sterilised?

How do I tell if the SnapIT Personal is compatible with our ampoules?
SnapIT Personal comes in regular size only, which is compatible with most ampoules sized 1-15mL. However, compatibility depends on the ampoule’s geometry and the diameter of the ampoule lid. Ampoules of the same size can have a different geometry and ampoule lid diameter. The ampoule size in ml is used only as a guideline.
You can test compatibility by gently inserting the head of the ampoule into the SnapIT Personal. If it does not easily fit, please do not force the ampoule.
How often do I need to clean SnapIT Personal?
We recommend cleaning your SnapIT regularly, to remove any glass residue that is left inside. Please check with your organisation’s cleaning routine for such devices.
If you open a “bad” ampoule and the glass shatters inside your SnapIT, clean the device immediately while wearing gloves and replace your O-Ring.
How do I clean the SnapIT Personal?
Disassemble the SnapIT by removing the keyring and O-Ring as per the instructions provided in the SnapIT Personal packaging. Water and most medical-grade cleaning agents can be used.

o. The SnapIT is designed to safely open scored ampoules.
If the ampoule is scored on one side (as indicated by the dot), align the dot on the ampoule with the dot on the SnapIT Trolley and snap away. If the ampoule is scored all the way around (as indicated by the band), you can align the SnapIT Personal as is comfortable and snap away.
