The need for more reliable techniques is driving the industry to come up with solutions that may involve completely new drug-device products or re-think traditional packaging. Behind this well-defined new trends there is also the need to reduce the contamination risks at the point of administration (main cause of sterility loss and death). While the device technology is allowing new formulations that before were not even imagined combining new technology this journey is also revolutionizing the options for administration place (hospital/home).
