The agreement makes Stevanato Group an exclusive manufacturing partner for the device, offering a full set of capabilities to its pharmaceutical customers. Stevanato Group will mould the components for Aidaptus ® and provide final and sub-assembly equipment, while also offering market-leading pre-filled syringes to enable pharmaceutical customers to create the final product for patient use. Assembly of the components will be undertaken by both Stevanato Group at its global manufacturing sites and by Owen Mumford at its automated assembly center of excellence in the UK.

The collaboration is intended to bring added value to customers, matching world-class device expertise with premium manufacturing capabilities. It is expected to streamline device production with the aim to and deliver the full value of the innovative Aidaptus® platform to the market.

Aidaptus® is a 2-step, single use auto-injector with a versatile design that accommodates both 1mL and 2.25 mL prefilled glass syringes in the same base device. It also features plunger sensing technology with a self-adjusting plunger rod that automatically adapts to the individual plunger positions and different fill volumes in each syringe, with no change parts required. The auto-injector is also able to accommodate a unique variety of drug viscosities.

With over 70 years of experience, Stevanato Group supports pharmaceutical companies with the right degree of flexibility to meet their quality and productivity goals. With an integrated offer of precision injection moulding capabilities and modular assembly platforms, the company offers the possibility to scale production and move from clinical trial to high-volume production with extreme flexibility.

“Aidaptus® will help patients to self-administer their individual therapies using a simple and easy to use device,” said Adam Mumford, Director of Owen Mumford. “At the same time, this auto-injector can help reduce complexity, minimize supply chain risk and simplify final assembly for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, thanks to its ability to adapt to different viscosity, syringe sizes and fill volumes. Often during development or life-cycle management of injectable drug products, changes in these parameters can occur. Now for the first time, the device does not have to be changed as well.”

Mauro Stocchi, Chief Business Officer of Stevanato Group, commented: "We believe this agreement is an important step in enhancing and growing the opportunities in our drug delivery systems portfolio as we broaden our capabilities in this key market. As we are constantly working with our customers to satisfy their needs, we continue to experience an increase in demand for auto-injectors. With this agreement, we will exploit the full breadth of Stevanato Group integrated capabilities being able to offer device manufacturing, assembly equipment, together with pre-fillable syringes and inspection systems."

“Stevanato Group is an established company with an excellent reputation in the pharmaceutical industry,” said Michael Earl, Director of Pharmaceutical Services at Owen Mumford. “It has deep expertise in complex moulding and assembly operations and will be a reliable source of quality components for our Aidaptus® auto-injector. Forming a collaboration with Stevanato Group will provide additional reach to enable more customers to benefit from the advantages of this innovative new platform.”

Steven Kaufman, VP for Drug Delivery Systems at Stevanato Group, added: "The Aidaptus® auto-injector platform combines ease of use for patients with faster time-to-market access for pharma organizations. We aim to be the strategic partner with which to develop innovative combination products as we continue the expansion of our integrated capabilities in the drug delivery space, and for this reason we are very excited to work with Owen Mumford and provide access to its exciting new auto-injector platform."
