Drug Delivery Flow Elements

Pharmaceutical and medical device companies are constantly exploring new ways to deliver drug molecules to patients. Through passive diffusion, we can control drug flow rates to achieve a therapeutic dosing window for six months or more using an implantable package equipped with drug delivery flow elements. Our solutions, including these drug delivery flow elements, are ideal for drugs that require frequent injection or dosage or can cause elevated plasma toxicity levels. They also offer manufacturers new drug delivery options to provide a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
