A novel needle-free drug delivery system

 

 

Seagull Technologies has developed a novel cross-platform drug delivery method that

non-invasively delivers drugs ranging from small molecules to large proteins (with

or without nano-particle encapsulation) through biological tissues by an innovative  

 combination of nanotechnology and ultrasound .   

  

  

 

Advantages

 

  

Our technology:

  removes the risks and discomfort associated with injections;

• depending on the site of application, can be used for targeted or systemic drug delivery; and

• may offer new opportunities for drugs that:

 – are inactivated by gastro-intestinal or liver metabolism; or

 – cause untoward side effects from ingestion.

  

 

How it works:

 

Seagull Technology utilises the electrical properties of polymers combined with ultrasonic

stimulation to facilitate the release of drugs (with or without nano-particle encapsulation)

in regulated doses and subsequent movement of packaged or raw drugs across biological

membranes.
