Each year, the Medical Design Excellence Awards competition receives entries on the latest innovations in the medical industry. One category—Drug-Delivery and Combination Products—focuses on the packaging side of the development. For 2019, five drug-delivery devices are in the running for an award. Here's a look at this year's finalists, courtesy of Omar Ford, managing editor of MD+DI, a sister publication of Packaging Digest.
Winners of the Medical Design Excellence Awards will be announced June 11, in a special ceremony at MD&M East, colocated with EastPack 2019. You can vote for your selection for the 2019 Readers' Choice winner by clicking here.
