There is a growing demand for devices, which facilitate the injection of parenteral drugs outside of the healthcare environment. This demand is primarily driven by the numerous new biologic drug products – and corresponding biosimilar versions of these biologics- which are used in the treatment of a wide range of long-term therapies that address chronic conditions that require subcutaneous injections and can be self-administered.
E3D is focused on addressing the need for development, manufacturing and supply of drug delivery devices for self-administration of injectable drugs in non-clinical environments. E3D’s broad portfolio encompasses devices, which are suitable for drugs in a range of primary containers, including auto-injectors, on-body delivery systems and smart devices with wireless connectivity and data logging features.
Following are a couple of excellent examples from E3D’s device portfolio
E3D’s Flexi-Q eMU-P is an electro-mechanical multi-use auto-injector system for drugs in pre-filled syringes. It was developed following extensive usability tests involving patients from diverse groups with a variety of conditions and injection-related challenges. The eMU-P is comprised of a reusable Smart Device and a single-use Cassette which incorporates a drug-filled syringe. It was specifically designed for ease of use and patient safety with clear, real-time guidance and confirmation on correct use.
Since the drugs are self-administered at home, a key consideration is to be able to verify that prescribed medications are being administered at the correct dosage and at the right time; Flexi-Q eMU-P has a unique wireless connectivity and data capture capability that can enable physicians to remotely monitor adherence to treatment. Other features include automatic verification of the drug’s temperature and expiry date.
E3D’s Flexi-Q mMU is a mechanical multi-use auto-injector system that integrates a reusable Device with a single-use Cassette incorporating a drug-filled syringe. .
With just one additional user-handling step compared to a traditional single-use auto-injector, the mMU offers all of the convenience, ease-of-use of single-use devices -including needle shielding, automated injection and automatic needle safety.
Its reusable, user-friendly, and cost-effective design positions Flexi-Q mMU as an optimal choice for long-term therapies for chronic conditions, addressing not only patient needs but also aligning with healthcare sustainability goals by reducing waste, minimizing storage volume and lowering costs.
