Drug-Delivery Devices Celebrated at Pharmapack Europe

Drug-Delivery Devices Celebrated at Pharmapack Europe

Sophisticated devices are playing frequent roles in the delivery of pharmaceuticals, and the winners of the 2019 Pharmapack Awards are evidence of that deepening trend.

Drug-delivery devices were honored in both the Exhibitor Innovations and Health Products categories in the awards program held February 7 during Pharmapack Europe 2019. Here are the device-related winners:

Exhibitor Innovations: Best Innovation in Drug Delivery Device

  • Connected Health Platform by Phillips-Medisize
  • Cartridge-based wearable device by Stevanato Group

Health Products: Patient-Centric Design Award

  • Excilor 2-in-1 Wart Treatment by Medical Brands, co-developer: Vemedia

Pharmapack Europe Brand Director Silvia Forroova said the winners “showcased a wide range of industry-changing discoveries in the field of drug delivery, packaging, and automation.”

Two exhibitors were honored with the Best Innovation in Drug Delivery Device awards.

Phillips-Medisize was honored for its Connected Health Platform (CHP), depicted below in a patient app.

The cloud-based CHP offers drug-delivery device developers and pharmaceutical companies a medical device data system platform that could help reduce risk, cost, and time to market for connected health solutions, the company shared in a press release last October. “Our CHP further demonstrates our commitment to creating innovative solutions for our customers. This allows clients to quickly change or fine-tune reports without the need for costly, time-consuming software development,” said Matt Jennings, CEO and President, Phillips-Medisize, in the release. “By offering our platform as a service (PaaS), we’re responsible for data security, management and storage. That gives our customers the freedom to focus on what they do best – creating connected health solutions that provide better patient experiences and facilitate improved patient outcomes.” 

Stevanato Group was honored with a ‘Best Innovation in Drug Delivery Device’ award for its cartridge-based wearable device, shown below.

Stevanato's cartridge-based wearable device is offered as alternative to traditional pen-injectors, the company reported on its Web site.  The device consists of a discreet disposable pod and a handheld user interface and controller; when the controller is placed over the pod, the pod delivers the needed dose. The device can deliver subcutaneous or intramuscular injections. The company described ideal applications as those that would need at least 2 injections/day or slow injection times. 

The Excilor 2-in-1 Wart treatment (shown below) by Medical Brands was recognized in the Health Product category with the Patient-Centric Design Award.

Co-developed by Vemedia, Excilor 2-in-1 Wart combines cryo and acid treatments into a single device, providing faster treatment time and fewer applications, Pharmapack shared.
