Imprint’s DepotOne needle achieves CE Mark

12.10.2004


Imprint Pharmaceuticals (www.imprintpharma.com) is pleased to announce that its DepotOne needle technology has received its CE Mark and is now cleared for use in Europe. This CE Approval means that the DepotOne needle can be incorporated into clinical studies and existing products with minimal additional regulatory work.



DepotOne is a ‘small’ needle which can replace large needles. It has the penetration characteristics of a small needle with the flow of a large needle. The needle delivers highly viscous materials and will eliminate the need to resort to an unacceptably large needle for subcutaneous or intramuscular injections.

DepotOne is revolutionary as it enables higher doses to be injected. A higher deliverable dose means that new therapeutic products can be developed which have substantially improved product characteristics. The technology is particularly applicable for slow release or depot injectables including pegylated compounds, polymers and highly concentrated protein formulations.


Marketers are fully aware of the significant problems posed by the use of larger needles to the reputation and marketability of an injectable therapeutic product. Thus companies are planning to use DepotOne to reduce the impact of the large needle issue so the positive aspects of their product can be highlighted.

The technology is now being used in a number of clinical trials for high value long acting injectable therapeutics. Kevin Maynard, Business Development Director of Imprint Pharmaceuticals said “DepotOne creates a sea change in the presentation of injectable therapeutics. No longer do patients need to be faced with unacceptably large needles. I believe DepotOne will play a vital role in lowering the resistance to uptake of many of the new biological therapies coming through pharmaceutical companies’ product development lines.”

Imprint Pharmaceuticals Ltd is a centre of expertise in complex injectables. The company supplies tools to enhance the delivery and manufacture of these problematic formulations. Imprint has a range of patented injection devices which enhance the delivery of formulations containing particulates, viscous materials, gels and polymers. In addition, Imprint provides consultancy and patented technologies to enable rapid formulation and scale up of manufacture. Our expertise and patented technologies extend the range of complex injectable products enabling our clients to gain a commercial edge.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
