ISSOIRE, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
BIOCORP (Paris:ALCOR) (FR0012788065 – ALCOR / Eligible PEA‐PME), a French company specializing in the development and manufacturing of innovative medical and drug delivery devices, announces today that its new device Onejet has won the Patient Safety and Convenience Award attributed by Pharmapack Europe 2018.
Onejet is the first motor driven, disposable and Bluetooth connected auto injector compatible with standard primary containers. Its motorization can be adjusted to any biologics density, allowing Onejet to easily deliver highly viscous drugs.
Injection data (time, doses and date) are transferred to a mobile app via Bluetooth, allowing monitoring of key treatment information. Connectivity is made possible thanks to an innovative and effortless pairing system requiring a simple confirmation from patient.
Onejet enhances BIOCORP’s connected devices range designed for modern healthcare. The global biologicals drugs market is increasing since those drugs are used to treat chronic diseases such as cancer, severe blood disorders and other auto immune diseases. Transparent Market Research forecasts a 10% annual growth rate: the market was US$ 210 billion in 2016 and is relied to ascend to US$ 480 billion by 2024(1).
Onejet answers an unmet need of pharmaceutical companies requiring an auto injection device flexible enough to deal with different containers and viscosities, starting from the early clinical trials stage. Onejet offers in a single mechanical platform an easy to use device, in a compact design with the advanced functionalities of ‘’smart’’ platforms including motor driven injection system, calibration of injection speed and force, and connectivity.
‘’Our whole team is very proud of winning this third Pharmapack Award in 4 years. Our connected injector pen Datapen was awarded in 2015 and our smart sensor Easylog in 2016. It is today Onejet’s turn to be rewarded during this major health exhibition. We are confident that this device will bring to our pharma companies partners a new tool for the safety and comfort of their patients’ treatments’’ commented Eric Dessertenne, BIOCORP’s Deputy Chief Executive Officer.
