Drug Rep Lot of Two Rare NOS/Working TYGACIL® Antibiotic Promotional BP Pens *MINT*
This offer is for a lot of two different graphics, rare, new old stock (NOS) vintage mid 2005 Pharmaceutical Industry Drug Rep promotional TYGACIL® IV Antibiotic plastic retractable ballpoint pens supply 'gifts' given to health care providers. Both of the ballpoint pens are fully working/functional with their original black ink cartridges. The Tygacil® black ink cartridge is not stamped/marked with a manufacture. Each pen can be opened to replace the ink cartridge if needed. See the attached images #4 & #5 which demonstrate the four parts to each pen: the barrel, cap, spring and ink cartridge (aka ink tube). Each pen has the drug trade name (Tygacil®) graphic in three locations; twice on the barrel (along with it's generic name) and once on the clip. Both pens have a plastic barrel and threads with an orange colored rubberized outer grip.
Both pens work as intended. See attached images #2 & #3 as the seller used each corresponding pen to write a line on a piece of white paper to demonstrate that each pen will still write as intended. Generally, the ink cartridges tend to dry-out with time especially those over ten years old so this is an exceptional collection since both pens are at least 14-15 years old, as Tygacil® IV was FDA approved on June 15, 2005.
Both pens are considered rare and were very popular with medical staff because of the tiger graphics, colors and shape. When the IV antibiotic was first FDA approved the Wyeth drug rep promoted the tiger graphic pen which was one of the more popular with the medical staff personnel in a number of years. The pen without the tiger graphics came about a year later, as the seller recalls. Additionally, the injectable product related pens are considered more scarce since the drug reps would, for the most part, promote them to health care providers practicing in hospitals and other institutional care facilities.
Sometime in the mid to late 2000's the drug companies began to pull back on handing out such promotional supply 'gifts' to medical health providers due to public awareness and their subsequent complaints to state and local officials. From that point in time, for a variety of reasons, there was significantly less distribution of such 'gifts'. So, this collection is from a time period that does not exist today.
The pens are new old stock and were never used. The two pens write with their original black ink cartridges. See the attached image #3 for a demonstration line drawn from each pen. Overall, the seller would estimate all the pens are in mint/like new condition.
