SHL Group has announced it will be showcasing its range of new devices and innovative technologies at the 2017 Parenteral Drug Association (PDA) Universe of Pre-filled Syringes and Injection Devices.
At the centre of this exhibition are SHL’s designs for high-volume and high-viscosity formulations. SHL will debut the ground-breaking Maggie®, a two-step cartridge-based solution for high-volume injections and needle isolation technology to prevent metal leachables from contaminating the drug product.
Also on display are auto injector Bertha® that features a continuous clicking mechanism to enhance usability and safety, and cutting-edge constant force technology Rotaject® that allows for the delivery of highly viscous formulations of up to several hundred centipoise.
SHL representatives would be happy to demonstrate these devices along with other services and capabilities available through SHL’s comprehensive network, including development, manufacturing and commercialisation solutions.
Corresponding with this year’s exhibition theme, ‘improving patients’ outcomes with innovative drug delivery’, SHL will also introduce its range of digital initiatives for digital health, connected technology, and therapy management. Representatives from renowned developers of advanced drug delivery systems will also be available to talk about the company’s comprehensive capabilities and commercialisation solutions for faster time-to-market.
Global marketing director of SHL Group Magnus Fastmarken said: “The recent surge in biologics and biosimilars, along with the continuous need to improve treatment outcome and patient adherence, have made the need for innovative and intuitive delivery devices more evident than ever.
“SHL has a full range of solutions to meet that need. We’ll be in Vienna to meet pharma companies where they are and to help them take the next step.”
Managing director of SHL Connect Markus Bauss will share his expertise in talks at a pre-conference workshop on 6 November, as well as at the main event. At the conference, he will deliver a presentation titled ‘Injectable Drug Delivery – Rethinking Best Practice in Manufacturing based on Smart Objects & Intelligent Machinery.’
The two-day exhibition will be held from the 7 November to 8 November at the Austria Center in Vienna, Austria.
