Arab Medical Equipment Company (AMECO) was established in 1984 in 10th of Ramadan City as a family-run business. The factory was erected at an area of 30 thousand square meters in accordance with European standards in design, manufacturing and preparation. AMECO is the first and largest single-use syringe manufacturer in the Middle East. In addition to disposable syringes, AMECO produces hypodermic needles and IV and transfusion sets.

RETRAGO is an innovative reinvention of the syringe, implementing safety mechanisms promoting infection prevention and control. After a single injection, the RETRAGO syringe automatically retracts the exposed needle and prevents the re-use of the syringe. RETRAGO is the first automatically retractable syringe that features Auto Disable (AD), Re-Use Prevention (RUP), and Sharp Injury Protection (SIP) safety mechanisms in one device.
