Breakthrough Technology

Through its proprietary ECell technology and primary container, the PatchPump is the only customizable, pre-filled, and pre-programmed disposable parenteral delivery platform for large volume and viscous formulations.

The Evolution of Injectable Therapy

The development of biopharmaceuticals is the 'future' of injectable drug products. Challenging formulations are driving market need for a single use, prefilled device that can deliver large volumes, manage viscosity issues, is cost effective, and optimizes patient convenience. Additionally, innovators are seeking delivery technologies that further differentiate their products.

  1. The primary container is comprised of a rigid base plate, molded Biologics Compatible Material (BCM); Flexible blister, BCM based film; and a septum. It is aseptically filled with sterile liquid drug at site of manufacture. Buzzers and LED's provide visible and audible feedback to patient.
  2. The PatchPump ECell battery expands by microprocessor control to push a piston and collapse the primary container to deliver drug into the skin.
  3. Programmable Circuit Board (PCB) is programmed with delivery rate, delivered dose & controls expansion of the Ecell providing an accurate sensor controlled delivery.

PatchPump® is a size efficient and scalable delivery product for injectable drugs because: One single ECell design acts as both the power source and the driving mechanism for the whole range of drug volumes and viscosities; The volume of the drug container is easily changed without fundamental changes to the technology.

ECell® Technology

The "Heart" of PatchPump®

ECell Technology
The ECell® is the compact and self-powered driving mechanism that is used to activate and operate the PatchPump® while maintaining size efficiency, and patient comfort.

The ECell

  • Is a unique, small, self-powered expanding battery
  • Irreversibly expands upon discharge
  • Is fully disposable
  • Is electronically controlled enabling accurate and specific drug dosing
  • Expands under high pressures enabling delivery of viscous drugs
  • Is IP protected and fully owned by SteadyMed Therapeutics

Product Advantages

A few ways PatchPump® works for you

Our PatchPumps are being developed to deliver liquid drugs, including biologics, in a controlled manner via a compact and simple to use design.

Simple - Pre-filled with drug, no complex mechanics and easy to manufacture. Just apply to the body and go!

Smart - Precise electronic control allows accurate delivery of preprogrammed dose, while providing feedback to patient.

Small - Slim profile design, comfortable and discreet.

Precise - Sensor based control for accurate basal or bolus delivery of drug.

Scalable - The PatchPump platform can accurately deliver a range of drug dose volumes from 1mL to volumes over 2mL, independent of viscosity.

Self Monitoring - Internal sensors provide patient with dosing feedback.
