Portal Instruments, a medical device company developing a connected needle-free drug delivery system, and Gerresheimer, a global partner in the pharma and healthcare industries have announce a joint talk, New Meets Old: Challenges and solutions with Developing a Custom Primary Container, to be given on Wednesday, 6 of February at 10:00 a.m. CET at the Paris Expo, Porte de Versaille in Paris.

Andrew Coats, VP of Engineering Portal Instruments, and Dr Wenzel Novak, Senior Global Director Business Development Gerresheimer Bünde GmbH, will lead the presentation. 

Portal Instruments’  system consists of a reusable, connected jet-injector and a disposable, pre-filled COP cartridge. The system is designed to allow patients to self-administer medications on demand and at home without the hassle and complication of traditional needles — improving the experience for patients on chronic therapies. Portal will be showcasing its connected needle-free drug delivery system at booth B14 at Pharmapack, Paris (Porte de Versailles). 

Portal and Gerresheimer have jointly developed the system's disposable COP cartridge. Portal chose Gerresheimer as a partner for the cartridge based upon Gerresheimer’s experience in the development and production of COP primary packaging products such as the Gx RTF ClearJect needle syringe. Gerresheimer will be showcasing its polymer syringes at booth B62 at Pharmapack. 

Pharmapack 2019 takes place February 6 - 7, 2019 in Paris. Pharmapack is dedicated to drug delivery and pharmaceutical packaging with key industry players attending from all over the world.
