WEARABLE INJECTORS: THE PERCEPTION OF INHERENT EXPENSE AND COMPLEXITY
There is a widespread belief that wearable injectors are too expensive and complex to really take off as a commercially viable method of drug delivery. Jesper Roested tackles the causes of this belief, and explains why it is not truly the case.
2014 TO 2018: AN UPDATE ON THE STATE OF WEARABLE INJECTORS
Looking back on the developments in large volume injectors since his article in ONdrugDelivery’s 2014 issue on wearable injectors, Paul Jansen reflects on the state of this technology space today, how it has progressed and the value it is likely to offer.
