For each participating company, this section presents a detailed summary highlighting their core technologies, capabilities, technologies, and services.
Alfred Harvey, MBA, MS, discusses how differences in primary container options for injectable drugs can add value by offering hospitals and care centers configurations that address universal pain points.
Andy Lewis, PhD, discusses a range of available formulation technologies, the challenges in MR formulation development, and the use of a design-space approach with on-demand manufacturing.
Ed Trappler and John A. Merhige, MEM, believe it is no longer sufficient to put a product in a vial, and the future of healthcare products places increasing demands on the industry to provide innovations for delivering combination products.
Richard Gray, MA, discusses the use of polymer microparticles for pharmaceutical applications, including specific examples of polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) encapsulation.
Christian Riva, MS, presents a case study proving it is possible to have a realistic prediction of the injection volume accuracy of a drug delivery system, even in an early stage of product development, when only a high-level product architecture is available.
Carina Van Eester, MSCE, believes with state-of-the-art medicines, it is essential that drug manufacturers can rely on appropriate sealing solutions that provide the best possible protection for their products.
WEARABLE DEVICES – Wearable Drug Delivery Applications: Considerations for Adhesive Material Selection & Wear Testing
Neal Carty, PhD, MBA, and Deepak Prakash, MS, MBA, discuss the broader healthcare and digital health landscape behind wearable device developments and provide a brief overview of two types of wearable applications — insulin pump therapy/continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems and wearable drug injectors.
SPECIAL FEATURE – Injection Devices: Wearables, Connectivity & Patient-Centric Designs Empower Self-Administration
Contributor Cindy H. Dubin highlights the innovation in injection devices – from wearables to connectivity to varied dose administration – that have occurred in the past year.
DEVICE DESIGN – Autoinjector Design Adjustment to Control Needle Insertion & Initial Injection Speed – Could This Positively Impact Drug Delivery?
Pascal Dugand, Thomas Megard, and Séverine Duband explain how controlling the needle insertion speed can reduce the shock on the prefilled syringe, which can reduce the risk of glass breakage, and will allow a smooth transition to syringe emptying.
