the intradermic needle
easy & reliable
Intradermal injection is emerging as the preferred route of administration for many innovative therapies in, for example, immunotherapy, vaccination and aesthetics. However, the standard-of-care method for intradermal injection, the almost a century old "Mantoux technique", is a procedure that improperly uses hypodermic needles (intended for injections under the dermis) and as a result is complex and unreliable. Hereby, the Mantoux technique impedes pharmaceutical innovation and there is a clear and urgent need for an easy-to-use but reliable intradermal injection method.
"We innovate intradermal administration to facilitate novel therapies"
We design and manufacture easy-to-use, patient friendly intradermic needles that are very small (micro), very sharp, highly accurate, reliable and low cost. Our proprietary intradermic needle technology makes use of innovative manufacturing processes and needle (device) designs.
Bella-mu is our first registered product and well received by clinicians.
"We create easy-to-use and reliable intradermic needles for injection and infusion"
Intradermal injection (ID injection) is s shallow or superficial injection of a substance into the dermis part of the skin, in between the epidermis and the hypodermis (or subcutaneous or adipose layer). Due to the complexity of the manoeuvre requiring the use of hypodermic needles today, this route is relatively rare compared to subcutaneous injections (SC) and intramuscular injections(IM), and used only when certain therapies, like tuberculin and allergy tests, require the specific benefits of this route of administration. Specific ID route of administration benefits are a higher immune responses for vaccinations, immunotherapy or novel cancer treatments and a much faster drug uptake. (Small and well soluble proteins or molecules, ID route of administration are taken up much faster systemically compared to SC injections.) Additionally, the body's reaction to substances is more easily visible since it is closer to the surface, which is exploited in allergy testing. Learn more on the human skin.
