SHL is a privately-owned developer, designer and manufacturer of advanced drug delivery devices.
We work with leading biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to develop drug delivery systems, from compact disposable auto injectors and reusable pen injectors to complex inhaler systems. These devices are based on standard pre-filled syringes (PFS) and cartridges as well as novel primary containers. Our concept development and innovative design takes place at our design centres in Sweden and the US, where experienced engineers develop product enhancements and breakthrough drug delivery solutions.
SHL manufactures an extensive range of auto injectors that re-define the self-injection process by making them simple, safe and reliable. SHL-designed auto injectors make administrating drugs easier and more consistent than manual injections, improving patient compliance and ensuring successful therapy delivery. Modern auto injectors include features such as:
- Enhanced safety
- Intuitive use and ergonomic design
- Reduced number of components
- Two-step or three-step operation
- Compact design
- Inter-lock systems with sequential control and non-sequential control
- Ability to accommodate high range of viscosities as well as different types of needles and needle-shields (RNS, FNS)
Disposable auto injectors
SHL's DAI (disposable auto injector) is considered to be one of the most effective devices on the market today and has changed people's perception of what an auto injector is. This easy-to-use auto injector features a three-step operation that ensures successful delivery in a matter of seconds. Another example is the shield-activated NAISA auto injector, which offers a two-step operation as well as the ability to handle a range of viscosities.
Molly auto injector
Molly is an intuitive auto injector featuring an ultra-compact design, simplified two-step operation and a permanently hidden needle. Preconfigured programme allows accelerating speed-to-market for customers. The compact device also utilises state-of-the-art safety and ergonomic features. Now the device is also available in larger volume as Molly 2.25.
High-viscosity and high-precision auto injectors
The PPI (precision pen injector) addresses the need for an extremely high-precision device with dosage accuracy that can handle highly viscous formulations.
Dual-chamber auto injectors
Responding to the needs of customers, SHL has invested in developing a range of dual-chamber auto injectors, including the SDI-MIX+NIT auto injector and its variable dose counterpart VSDI auto injector.
SHL offers features such as variable dosing, dose limit memory settings, full control over the injection process, disposable or reusable options, compactness, and stylish industrial designs. Pen injectors, such as Penny, allow for discreet yet modern design and large scale manufacturing.
In addition to designs suited for single-chamber cartridges, SHL has produced three dual-chamber cartridge pen injectors, and has several pen injectors under development for lyophilised formulations.
Partnering with other experts in this field, SHL has applied for several patents to protect some ground-breaking solutions that we believe will be beneficial to our customers. Our most recent development is ADI (aqueous droplet inhaler), the device that will change the very notion of inhalers by reducing time and at the same time increasing the efficacy of each inhalation.
