Administering drugs into the skin
Verapido Medical GmbH is a medical technology start-up company in the area of medication dosage from Villingen-Schwenningen. This Hahn-Schickard spin-off company, founded in 2013, specializes in the development of innovative, safe and comfortable equipment for injection and infusion in or under the skin. Verapido's most widely-developed product candidate is the "dermaject® intradermal injection device", or "dermaject®" for short, a special medicine product for injecting into the upper skin layer (intradermal). For dermaject®, a newly-developed and patented cannula-insertion mechanism, combined with microneedle technology, was created. Other programs include a new device with precise, individual depth adjustment for injecting botulinum toxin, an auto-injector pen for pre-filled syringes, and an innovative infusion apparatus for the subcutaneous rehydration of patients suffering from dehydration.
