Pushing Design Boundaries with Materials Science to Respond to the Voice of the Patient

The wearable drug delivery industry continues to expand, driving demand for smaller device sizes of existing applications and developing new applications to deliver drug products. 

Tailored drug delivery and storage systems and discreet wearable technologies allows patients to conduct normal lifestyles, but the current products and/or solutions are inadequate; The challenge is twofold:

  1. Application environments are challenging for current industry material properties and capabilities
  2. The drug delivery devices don’t meet the lifestyle demands of the device users

Solution providers with materials science as a key capability can lead the way with new material formulation offerings that push boundaries once considered impossible.

In this new case study from Minnesota Rubber & Plastics (MRP), “Tailoring Drug Delivery and Storage Systems to Meet the Evolving Market”, we’ll explore the three mainstays for providing customers with drug delivery and packaging solutions:

  1. Material Suitability and Compatibility
  2. Device Mechanics and Design
  3. Regulatory Standards and Compliance

Learn how MRP is pushing design boundaries with material science to help customers respond to the voice of the patient.
