Newer classes of biologic drugs have higher viscosities and require delivery of larger volumes outside of the capability of traditional spring-powered devices. Attempting to deliver these new treatments with spring-powered devices can result in larger, less ergonomically friendly injector devices with long delivery times and large needles whose noise and vibration levels are frightening to the end users.
With the power to deliver high viscosity, large volume formulations in short or programmed periods of time, new biologic drug-compatible auto-injectors and wearable bolus injectors benefit from the power of Pico-Cylinders. The high energy density coupled with the smooth, silent delivery of drugs can reduce syringe breakage and ease patient concerns leading to higher compliance and a better user experience.

SYSTEM BUILDING BLOCKS
We call them Application Accelerators
The mechanism by which the user activates the gas cylinder to initiate power to the device. The methods of activation, including but not limited to: lever, button, push-to-skin and squeeze can be customized based upon specific customer requirements.
Proprietary needle insertion and retraction controlled by drive system pressure.
Gas powered drive system technology ensures a smooth, consistent delivery experience.
Precision Delivery Rate Control
Platform can be quickly tuned to change delivery characteristics including speed and force by altering system pressure or flow characteristics.
Motion Damping System
Smooth, precise delivery independent of variations in delivery forces.
Industry Standard Components
Adaptable Form Factor
The form factor and look of all Altaviz platforms can be quickly customized to suit customer requirements. Examples include physical ergonomics such as shape and texture as well as aesthetics: color, printing and labeling.
Compatible with Standard PFS
The auto-injector platform is compatible with standard 1 mL long and 2.25 mL prefilled syringes.
Graduations and sight windows can be added to platforms for confirmation of proper dose delivery.
Manual needle insertion with lockout mechanism to prevent accidental needle stick.
