The transdermal and subcutaneous drug delivery market is growing dramatically due to the fact that these drug delivery systems are more convenient for patients and health care professionals to use than conventional systems for administrating drugs. Device manufacturers are investing in R&D and design strategies to support the transdermal drug delivery industry.
With the sophisticated developments in microneedle patches, injectors and pre-filled syringes come increasing opportunities for using Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) technology, a specialty of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, to enhance the performance of these devices, ensure biocompatibility, meet industry regulations and facilitate the high volume manufacturing that is now required for such devices.
Luis Tissone, Life Sciences Director for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in the Americas, says: “We are excited at the opportunity to draw from decades of LSR technology experience and collaborate with engineering visionaries interested in advancing transdermal and subcutaneous drug delivery systems. We excel in solving product design challenges through shoulder-to-shoulder engineering and leveraging our sealing experts globally.
“Engineering teams have started to recognize the value LSR technology can bring to the drug delivery market, in addition to other medical device areas within dialysis, respiratory, surgical, prosthetics and biopharma, just to name a few.”
