Administration via the RALOGUN®

  • Insert the cartridge (with the large hollow axle facing to the back i.e. toward the pistol grip) un­til it snaps into place.

  • Always use a sharp needle. A blunt needle tears tissue and makes proper implanting difficult.

  • Wipe the intended puncture site on the backside of the ear with a piece of cotton or gauze mois­tened with rubbing alcohol.

  • Insert the needle of the RALOGUN under the loose skin and above the cartilage on the back side of the ear. After the needle has been inserted its full length under the skin the point of the needle should reach into the pocket under the loose skin near the base of the ear. In this area you can pick up the skin with your fin­gertips.

  • N.B. Avoid damage to blood vessels and carti­lage.

  • Squeeze the trigger of the RALOGUN to deliver the full dose of RALGRO. Keep the trigger depressed while withdrawing the needle to be sure that RALGRO implant remains in position.

  • Wipe the needle with cotton or gauze moistened with alcohol or other suitable disinfectant. Do not dip the needle in solution ‑ it could clog the needle.

  • Rotate cartridge in direction indicated by the ar­row until a new dose is visible and centred in window.

  • The RALOGUN is now ready for next im­plantation.
