Particle Therapeutics is developing single-use needle-free delivery devices pre-filled with specially formulated powder particles.
The advantages of our needle-free delivery system over conventional needle-and-syringe injection are as follows:
- No cross-contamination from needle or syringe re-use
- No particular skill is required to administer the needle-free device
- No perceived risk to the patient (e.g. injection of air, puncturing arteries)
- No bleeding, and administration is virtually pain-free
- No “cold chain” of refrigeration, as with preservation of liquid drugs
