Product Overview

Pharma Latch is a revolutionary self-administered, self-anchoring microneedle patch for drug and vaccine delivery. It is optimized for skin penetration, adhesive free attachment and scalable manufacture. Our unique angled microneedle solution ensures that each microneedle is repeatably inserted to the same depth in the skin every time in every patient. In addition, our unique coating technology allows Pharma Latch deliver payloads greatly in excess of other solutions currently on the market. As we can coat at room temperature, our technology allows the application of a wide variety of compounds including biologics.

Microneedles

Microneedles are micron-sized needles which can be made in a variety of sizes, shapes and materials. Many microneedle solutions have needles so small they are barely visible to the human eye. When inserted into the skin they do not stimulate pain receptors and are pre blood barrier. However they do penetrate intradermally offering an excellent potential drug and vaccine delivery solution. Intradermal drug delivery allows drugs, vaccines and biologics bypass first pass metabolism, with the potential to improve bioavailability. In addition, they offer the promise of being less invasive, increasing compliance, being easy to apply and removing a myriad of cold chain and logistics issues.

However, the promise of Microneedles has not been delivered upon. This is down to a range of factors including dose limitations, reliance on expensive applicators, inability to adhere to the skin, cost effective mass manufacturing methods, and perhaps most importantly, inconsistent needle penetration resulting in variability of dosing and payload inefficiencies. Pharma Latch overcomes all of these limitations.
