PEEK helps innovate the Boehringer Ingelheim microPart soft mist inhaler
Discover why Victrex polymers were selected to enable a unique misting technology, whilst reducing manufacturing costs and moving away from metals.
Victrex PEEK polymers provide an inert material that offers a range of high attributes for mechanical, chemical, or electrical performance in applications such as inhalers, wearable patch pumps and autoinjector insulin pens.
Join this webinar with Victrex and special guest product design engineers, Tricas, to look at how incorporating high performance PEEK polymers can help you to overcome complex design challenges in connected devices.
Would you like some help with material selection for your next project?
Tell us about the key engineering requirements that you need for your next drug delivery device, and a Victrex expert will guide you through your options to see if PEEK polymers could be a good fit.
Everything you ever needed to know about how and why to integrate high performance polymers into device design engineering. This exclusive eBook covers:
What do patients need so they like to use the devices? A suitable lightweight device is one that is reliable and most of all safe and simple to use. Whether at home or at work, the solution must accurately dispense the right amount of drug at the right location at the right time.
Material selection is critical for medical device designs. This includes drug delivery – whether the device is implantable or not. There are in fact quite a few materials available on the market that are successfully used in drug delivery devices and selecting the right materials can be a bigger challenge than originally thought.
Implantable or wearable drug delivery devices such as insulin pumps, used in the treatment of diabetes, could make a major contribution to the improvement of medication adherence. The current trend for these devices is to become less invasive, with smaller dimensions and parts miniaturised to precise tolerances.
