Shore showcases drug delivery expertise and devices at PODD and PDA

Published: 25 October 2023

At both events, our team showcased our expertise in drug delivery and medical devices. It was great to see familiar faces and make new connections.

PODD: Partnership Opportunities in Drug Delivery Conference

Director, James McLusky and Design Consultant, Scott Martin Held in Boston, US, the event was a combination of networking and a jam-packed speaker line-up.

Key industry stakeholders, including pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies, and medical device manufacturers attended the event. Topics such as drug delivery needs, the latest trends and a wide range of innovative drug delivery technologies were shared and discussed that could improve the delivery of various types of drugs.

This year’s talks and panel discussions were on topics such as ‘sustainability in manufacturing and development of delivery technology and devices’, with stand-out remarks including ‘reusability doesn’t need to compromise usability’. With many pharmaceutical companies seeking alternative materials for sustainable device development, Shore is well-placed to support this demand.

For example, we’ve been exploring an alternative material in the design of a single-use delivery device. Paper injection moulding is a potential game-changer, offering the possibility of replacing traditional plastics with a fully biodegradable material that naturally decomposes. In our new blog article, Design consultant, Jimmy discusses using this pioneering technology in a recent project.

PDA Pre-filled Syringes and Injection Devices Conference

Held in Gothenburg, Sweden the PDA Conference brought together industry experts to share their experiences, new developments, regulatory considerations, challenges, and industry trends.

Director, Ian Scrimgeour, Business Development Manager, Holly Milston, and Design Consultant, Kyle Toole were on hand to discuss our work in drug delivery, and how we address design and engineering challenges.

A particular highlight for us at PDA was showcasing our drug delivery and medical devices. The display featured large-volume autoinjectors, nasal delivery, and patient-controlled drug delivery devices to name a few. These were just a few examples of projects we have developed with leading pharmaceutical medical companies.
