Allergystop: A $50 Epi-pen (Epinephrine) Alternative Device

Since my last post was a serious criticism of an indiegogo campaign, here’s one that I feel has a legit product.

It’s an epinephrine injectable device designed to save the lives of patients suffering from anaphylaxis.

Twin cities allergist, Dr. Douglas Mcmahon, invented the device a few years ago while tinkering in his lab. He now hopes to get funding to help bring the pocket-sized epinephrine injector to the market and at a much lower price than the recently price inflated $600 Epi-pen.

Check out Allergystop’s indiegogo campaign here.

Other Epi-pen alternative devices are bulky or involve syringes that require special training. Dr. Mcmahon hopes to open the device up to investors to get it FDA-approved and doesn’t want the cost of Allergystop to go above $50.

They have a long way to go to hit their $200,000 goal, so help them out if you can!
