Possible Applications
  • Hormones
    Many patients require regular injections of sensitive biologic drugs such as insulin, which need to be stored in highly stable containers before use. These valuable drugs also need to be stored in containers that are compatible with a wide range of drug delivery systems. 
  • Biologics
    The trend to shift biologics drug administration from hospital to home setting with novel injection devices like wearable injectors. Biologic drugs are sensitive and some of them are highly viscous. cartriQ® is designed to cope with the stringent requirements of biologic drug stability and also self-administration of drugs with various injection devices.
