ABSTRACT

A Korean SME, specialized in developing and manufacturing medical devices especially in dentistry, is looking for a partner who has complete Jet Injector technologies, which is also called ‘Needle-Free injection’. The company wishes to introduce and utilize the technology with their own technical knowledge. The firm is seeking a partnership under license agreements and commercial agreements with technical assistance.


FULL DESCRIPTION

The Korean SME, founded in 2017, is specialized in the production and development of medical syringes. The firm is looking for having a partnership with a company that has Jet Injector Technologies. With that cooperation, the Korean firm wishes to use the technology to create products suitable for not only dentistry but almost all drug administration areas in the medical field. They are seeking a partner who can provide a License Agreement.

A jet injector is a type of medical injecting syringe device used for a method of drug delivery known as a jet injection, in which a narrow, high-pressure stream of liquid that penetrates the outermost layer of the skin (stratum corneum) to deliver medication to targeted underlying tissues of the skin ("cutaneous" injection, also known as classical "intradermal" injection), fat ("subcutaneous" injection), or muscle ("intramuscular" injection).

? Benefits
The main benefits of ‘Needle-Free Injection’ are that this treatment is pain-free and does no damage to the skin as the existing needle does.

? How it works
The jet stream is usually generated by the pressure of a piston in an enclosed liquid-filled chamber. The piston is usually pushed by the release of a compressed metal spring, although investigational devices may use piezoelectric effects* and other novel technologies to pressurize the liquid in the chamber. The springs of currently-marketed and historical devices may be compressed by operator muscle power, hydraulic fluid, built-in battery-operated motors, compressed air or gas, and other means. Gas-powered and hydraulically-powered devices may involve hoses that carry compressed gas or hydraulic fluid from separate cylinders of gas, electric air pumps, foot-pedal pumps, or other components to reduce the size and weight of the hand-held part of the system and to allow faster and less-tiring methods to perform consecutive vaccinations.
* piezoelectric effects: the ability of certain materials to generate an electric charge in response to applied mechanical stress.

? Market Trend
Jet injectors were used for mass vaccination, and as an alternative to needle syringes for diabetics to inject insulin. However, the World Health Organization no longer recommends jet injectors for vaccination due to risks of disease transmission. Similar devices are used in other industries to inject grease or other fluid.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The Korean SME is looking for a partner who has complete Jet Injection technologies. However, a company that sells Jet Injector will also be desirable, under the condition that the technologies should be up to date.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The Korean firm is seeking partner companies under license agreements and commercial agreements with technical assistance.
