Cambridge (Mass), June 3, 2019 — Portal Instruments, a medical device company developing a connected needle-free drug delivery system, will be attending BIO 2019 in Philadelphia where they will be showcasing their next generation jet injector. Come by booth #345 to see a live demonstration of the needle-free injector and see first hand how Portal is disrupting the drug delivery space.

 

Portal Instruments’ novel drug delivery system consists of a reusable, connected jet-injector and a single-use, cartridge pre-filled with medication. The system is designed to allow patients to self-administer medications at home without the hassle and complication of handling needles, thereby transforming the experience for patients with chronic conditions.

 

Portal is building on its first successful commercial partnership with Takeda. The company is currently in its Verification and Validation phase of development, having successfully completed its Design and Development phase earlier this year. This is an important milestone for the company as it places Portal firmly on the road to commercialization and the delivery of a world class product to patients. Portal will be seeking additional pharma partners at the conference.

 

BIO 2019 takes place on June 3-6, 2019 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, USA.
