Drug Delivery Science

What is skin?

Anatomically, the skin is made up of two primary tissue layers, an outer epidermis, and an underlying dermis, which together constitute the skin. The dermis itself contains two layers: the outermost layer is referred to as the papillary dermis while the deeper layer is known as the reticular dermis. The papillary dermis contains vast microcirculatory blood and lymphatic plexuses. Beneath the dermis is the subcutaneous tissue, which is composed of fatty and muscular tissue and an abundance of nerves.

Here are Three Primary methods by Which Drugs May be Injected:

1. Intramuscular 2. Subcutaneous 3. Intradermal

The intradermal injection method typically requires a standard needle to be carefully inserted into the dermis at an angle (15 degrees), making it a precise and awkward procedure for the user. It has been the major challenge for patients or care-providers administering an intradermal injection and is why a syringe is best used to administer into the subcutaneous or intramuscular tissue.

Pain-Free Micro-Needle Drug Delivery Technology Targets The Dermis Layers

Targetting the skin means that drug delivery can take place anywhere on the body, rather than the five often overused subcutaneous sites for injection. The pressure required to administer or self-administer the drug via the microneedle is minimal, and drug doses are premeasured and identified. 

This makes the Micro-Needle easy to use. 

No Mess – No Over or Under Dosing

Intradermal drug delivery improves efficacy. Our intradermal drug delivery design changes the pharmacokinetic profile, enhances the uptake and bio-availability of the protein, and enhances the efficiency of these compounds as compared to standard effectiveness of intramuscular or subcutaneous administration.
