SHL Group to Exhibit at Pharmapack 2018

SHL Group will participate in Pharmapack 2018, Europe's dedicated pharmaceutical packaging and drug delivery event, in Paris, France from February 7-8, 2018.

SHL's booth will highlight devices designed to broaden the potential of next-generation protein-based therapies. Offerings in this space include solutions for higher viscosity drug preparations: the Bertha®, an auto injector that features a continuous clicking mechanism to enhance usability and safety, and the Rotaject®, a cutting-edge constant force technology that allows for the delivery of highly viscous formulations of up to several hundred centipoise. SHL is also showing a range of higher-volume cartridge-based injectors made with Needle Isolation Technology (NIT®), which helps prevent metal leachables from contaminating the drug product.

Another focus will be SHL's initiatives in connected therapeutics, such as FlexRec™, a smart packing solution for multi-medication tracking, and InsulCheck®, a smart accessory that clips to an insulin pen and automatically starts counting the time since the last injection. Visitors are invited to step into an augmented reality experience to explore smart injector concepts created by QuiO, SHL's new partner in innovation.

"Over the last few years, digital healthcare has come into sharp focus for SHL's research and development, as it represents a truly new frontier for patient-centered healthcare. We have some exciting initiatives underway for connected devices that could go a long way toward solving several of today's challenges within self-treatment," said Magnus Fastmarken, global marketing director of SHL Group.

In addition, representatives will be available to talk about SHL's turnkey solution, which unites SHL's wide range of development, manufacturing and commercialization capabilities. At a dedicated site in Florida, we offer final assembly, labeling and packaging services to streamline the production and distribution process for SHL Medical products, optimizing end-product quality and speed to market.

The two-day conference will be held February 7-8 at the Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles. Visit SHL at Booth D18 to learn more about our advanced drug delivery systems and comprehensive suite of services and capabilities.
