3P Present Patch Pump Development (March 2017)

One of our senior Project Engineers Dave Phasey presented at the Injectables Management Forum in London. He presented our work with SteadyMed on their novel patch pump. He described how we assisted with the development of the processes by which the primary drug container is made, tested for leaks and subsequently filled aseptically. We have also manufactured the associated automation equipment.

The SteadyMed patch pump technology is based around a novel primary drug container (see item 4 in the graphic below). It is a low profile device for patient comfort. A flexible COP film blister is heated welded to a COP injection moulded base plate. The expansion of a battery during discharge is used as a piston to precisely dispense drug by moving the blister as required. It is a truely unique and innovative medical device requiring significant technology development both for the device and also for the methods of manufacture.

3P have developed blister forming, blister cutting and blister welding technology, all within a ISO class 5 open active RABS system. The device is then helium leak tested with some very unique, fast and precise technology developed by 3P in conjunction with Vacuum Engineering Service Ltd. The liquid drug is then filled aseptically on some unique 3P technology.

It is a wonderful case study of how 3P's well proven process development methodology adds significant value to our clients' projects.
