SmartDose® Drug Delivery Platform

Consistent. Reliable. Ready to Go.

The first combination product that incorporates the SmartDose® drug delivery platform was recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The SmartDose platform offers a wearable, subcutaneous injector with an integrated drug delivery system that incorporates human factors and usability testing to deliver a truly patient-centric approach to self-administration.

SmartDose® is a single-use platform that adheres to the patient's body, usually on the abdomen, and is pre-programmed to deliver high volumes of viscous or sensitive drug products. The SmartDose platform includes a Daikyo Crystal Zenith® drug container with elastomer components using Flurotec® barrier film.
  • Ideal for high-viscosity and silicone-sensitive biologic formulations
  • Includes a Daikyo Crystal Zenith primary drug container with Flurotec elastomer coating
  • Dual site commercial manufacturing
  • Injectable Volume Range: 3.7mL
  • Wear Time: Up to 2 hours
  • Minimum Delivery Time: 4.5 minutes
