10th Injectables Summit will return to San Diego on September 8 – 10 this year, uniting 120+ senior leaders in parenteral device design, development and engineers to share best practice and lessons learned from pre-filled syringes to autoinjectors. With the rise of emerging formulations and biologics, Injectable Device experts are tasked with new engineering challenges to ensure quality, computability and a human-centric approach to the device design. Join us to learn how your fellows are tackling these obstacles as well as leveraging strategic platforming to minimize development timeline.

Canadian biotech company IMV has made impressively rapid, solid progress on the development of a vaccine candidate against the novel coronavirus, using its lipid-based vaccine delivery platform, DPX. New developments in just two weeks include, include: initiation of peptide candidate manufacturing, cGMP scale-up plans, preclinical models/assays; and Phase I clinical trial design completed, with discussions with Health Canada already underway also.
Springboard is now offering: design reviews / risk assessments of COVID-19 related medical devices at no charge; answering ad hoc requests for advice on devices relevant to COVID-19 at no charge; device development expertise, including a willingness to tackle short term projects on a not-for profit basis; submission of services to the UK Gov call for businesses to help make NHS ventilators.
Andreas Schneider highlights how the ever-increasing interest in device platforms raises concerns around the broad availability of lookalike autoinjectors that may result in inappropriate medication usage. He summarises a recent empirical study1 providing insights into which device attributes drive device distinguishability.
