In a recent article issued by our raw material provider Covestro, a subsidiary of Bayer, in Medical Design and Outsourcing and in Drug Delivery Business News, it reports the needle-free injection technology and the application of their material, Makrolon Rx1805 polycarbonate, in this technology. It emphasizes that we have made a strict control on product quality from the very beginning of raw materials.
We keep several points in mind, which are important for all needle-free injection device material selection:
Lipid resistance (drugs in lipid emulsions can degrade polycarbonate materials, so it is important that selected materials can withstand lipids).
Resistant to radiation sterilization (to ensure high productivity and efficiency during the device manufacturing process).
Because these devices are in direct contact with the human body, it's important that they are biocompatible and comply with multiple requirements of ISO 10993-1.
Accuracy in molding size, and ability to maintain stability under different application environment.
A consistent and reliable global supply of the material.
