Please note – Anapen® to be held in place for 3 seconds:

As per the recent change by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) the Anapen® is now to be held in place for 3 seconds (originally 10 seconds). If the Anapen® is held in place for 10 seconds, it will not affect the way that the adrenaline works. Anapen® devices should not be replaced unless they have been used, are just about to expire or have expired.

New ASCIA Anapen® Action Plans with 3 second hold are available to be printed here.

For further information relating to this change, please see: https://allergyfacts.org.au/allergy-management/risk/change-to-instructions-on-anapen-administration


It is important to practice with an Anapen® trainer device so that you are prepared if an emergency occurs.

The Anapen® trainer device does not contain adrenaline or have a needle and is reusable (please note that reseting this Anapen® trainer is a different process to reseting the Anapen® trainer which was available in 2011-2014, please check the instructions in the leaflet below or provided in the box with your Anapen® trainer).

You can also use an Anapen® trainer device to demonstrate to carers, work colleagues, friends and family, so they are familiar with how to administer an Anapen®.

Note: The Anapen® adrenaline/epinephrine injector which contains adrenaline is only available from pharmacies. We only stock the trainer device.

How to administer an Anapen® can be found here: How to give an Anapen®
