Revolutionising healthcare through next-generation medical devices
The global pre-filled syringes market size is anticipated to reach USD 50.83 billion by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 11.95% from 2022 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Key factors driving the market expansion include technological advancements in auto-injectors and growing usage of pre-filled syringes.
Join us as Charlie Dean reveals innovative methodologies set to enhance injectable design.
Integrating Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) into reusable and disposable insulin pen design with renewable materials
Date | 1 June
Time | 10:30am CEST
Speaker | Charlie Dean, Sustainable design engineer, MedTech, Cambridge Consultants
- Introduction to Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) as per ISO 14040
- Application of LCA to reusable and disposable insulin pen design
- Investigation of environmental impact mitigations through introduction of renewable materials
Mitigating environmental burden of drug therapies is of ever increasing importance. While carbon footprint is a top priority, there are over a dozen other impact categories. Understanding how product design and materials affect the environment and what mitigations are available can be challenging. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a methodology that was developed to navigate the complex process of integrating sustainable principles into product development. This presentation aims to demonstrate the use of LCA in exploring how environmental impacts can compare in a cradle-to-gate basis on the following scenarios:
- Disposable insulin pen (single cartridge use)
- Reusable insulin pen
- Disposable insulin pen made with alternative renewable materials
- Reusable insulin pen made with alternative renewable materials
