DUBLIN, December 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5xm2bw/dual_chamber) has announced the addition of the "Dual Chamber Syringes & Injectors. Devices, Therapeutics, Markets and Forecasts" report to their offering.
Many drugs including biologicals require special storage and handling prior to their use because of stability issues - a limitation that has a direct impact on the drug delivery sector. Therapeutic proteins must either be stored under special conditions or formulated to retain their efficacy from the time of manufacture until they are dispensed. Liquid protein drugs require refrigeration until dispensed - a distribution strategy referred to as the Cold Chain'. Alternatively, proteins can be formulated as powders (lyophilization). Lyophilized proteins must be reconstituted prior to injection.
The need to reconstitute lyophilized drugs at the point of administration is driving the growth of dual chamber syringes and injectors - devices that allow reconstitution to take place within the device prior to injection. As biological drugs continue to grow in terms of therapeutics and total prescriptions, the impact of specialty devices will increase.
