Growth in demand for Injectable device platforms
The YpsoMate device family addresses the industry’s need for a convenient, fast-to-market device platform that supports global growth in emergency drug products and patient preferences for self-administration injections. The global autoinjector market is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 19.5% [*Source: Grand View Research].
Solutions for assembly, labeling and packaging autoinjector devices
In response to continued growth in the autoinjector market, Sharp offers assembly, labeling and packaging capabilities for vials, pre-filled syringes, pens and autoinjector devices. The YpsoMate device is an automated disposable injection device triggered by push-on-skin activation, which makes it convenient, ergonomic and suitable for all patients.
While these devices are particularly suited to a more patient-centered solution, they can pose specific challenges for handling, assembly and packaging, such as:
- Requiring custom assembly and labeling, as biologics are often packed in smaller batches
- Demanding a higher degree of technical precision for assembly and accurate label positioning
- Most biologic formats require specialized, temperature and light-controlled management
- Serialization and specialty distribution
