PKA MICRO-NEEDLE PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGY

  • The PKA SoftTouch micro-needle incorporates innovative design combined with an ingenious mechanism to achieve simple painless drug delivery between the skin layers.
  • This device is the only patented device that will allow the injection of drugs directly into the skin layer. The big difference with a shallow injection is that because the skin, which is the largest organ in the body, allows rapid dispersal of the drug into the bloodstream.
  • Injection of the drug into the skin layers does not disturb the nerve junctions and thereby avoids the sensation of pain. This fact was demonstrated in our human clinical trials where patients felt virtually little or no pain at all with the micro-needle injection as compared with painful injections using the standard syringe.
  • All other common methods of injecting drugs by injection syringe go through the skin into subcutaneous tissue and interfere with the nerve endings, causing pain sensation. This result of the injection of drugs into the subcutaneous tissues is thus painful and less direct.

The overall product design is simple, functional, and easy to use.

Based upon an exhaustive review of the currently commercially available syringe and micro-needle devices, there are no products similar to the PKA SoftTouch pain-free Micro-Needle in design or in concept.

How the PKA Micro-Needle  Works

There are 6 simple steps

   •   This innovative pain-free Micro-Needle technology uses a precisely manufactured,

        hair-like, thin needle that can penetrate the skin to within the depth of a 1-2

        millimeter thick skin layer.

   •   The needle does not penetrate the nerve endings, thereby causing no pain

   •   The injected drug is then carried to the blood stream by the interstitial fluid between

        the skin layers

   •   This offers the potential for improving drug bioavailability and reducing injection

        pain, as well as tissue damage

   •   The needle is fabricated and mounted specifically in the center of the device to ensure

        a 90° angle delivery in order to prevent the obstruction of the injection channel while

        penetrating the skin.

Room Temperature Stabilized Insulin

Our proprietary technology is able to stabilize insulin at room temperature. This achievement provides an incremental benefit for the micro-needle device, as it will not require refrigeration for an extended period of time. It allows the user to have a number of these devices in a pocket or purse, for an extended period while they are away from their home and traveling to control their insulin needs.
