A better auto-injector with Covestro polycarbonate
Auto-injectors, drug delivery devices that automatically administer an injectable dose for a patient, have grown in popularity over the past decade. With the help of Covestro polycarbonate, Pirouette Medical set out to solve affordability, portability and usability challenges with current offerings.
To meet our human-centered design requirements, we turned to Covestro for a medical-grade plastic that could perform at a high level.
Makrolon® 2458 polycarbonate is a highly moldable and high-flow resin, which enables thin-walled designs–an important attribute when it comes to offering a convenient device for patients that is easy to carry.
The combination of our advanced materials and technical support can help medical device manufacturers meet their important design, manufacturing and end-use requirements.
