Innovative flip top cap for secure delivery of pharmaceutical products
Summary:
A French Technology Transfer Office is looking for industrial partners interested in cooperation under a licence agreement to produce and commercialise an innovative flip top cap invented by a pharmacist from a University Hospital. This flip top cap enables oral administration of liquid medicines, contained in multidose vials, without any risk of contamination and without preservatives.
The device has been developed at pre-series stage and benefits from a worldwide IP protection.
Description:
This French Technology Transfer Office has been contributing to the innovations described below:
Preservatives are problematic for new-born medicines. Before, the only solution to avoid preservatives was single-use vials. From now on, the innovative flip top cap, developed at the pre-series stage, is indicated when the treatment needs to be adjusted to the weight as, for instance, in paediatrics, geriatrics or in the veterinary field and for hospitals or home use.

The main characteristics are:
* Non removable from vial,
* Compatible with glass or rigid plastic vials
* Screw-neck diameter: 27mm,
* EN FIT connector to oral syringe,
* High efficiency air intake filter
* One way valve.
* Flip top Cap
* Only 4 parts assembled by ultra sounds
* Easy to produce and mount to the vials
The French Technology Transfer Office is looking for industrial partners interested in cooperation under a license agreement to commercialise the innovation described.
Advantages and Innovations:
The innovative one-way valve presents the following advantages:
No preservatives are needed to avoid contamination and there is no need for specific formulation or equipment.
The flip top cap is:
- user friendly;
- adapted to standard glass vials or rigid plastics
- enables security for oral delivery
- presents no risk of contamination by ambient air due to a very efficient air filter (0.07 micrometer) and no risk of re-admission of liquid contained in the vial
- very convenient to adapt the dose to be administered as for instance to the weight
- environmentally friendly: thanks to the reduction of waste versus single-dose packaging
- cheaper per dose than the Blow-Fill-Seal or the Form-Fill-Seal technologies
- avoids losses of liquid and traces on the bottles
Stage of Development:
Prototype available for demonstration
IPs:
Granted patent or patent application essential
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
Patent is already granted in the following territories:
US, IL, BE, CH, DE, ES, FR, GB, GR, IT, PL, PT
Proceedures are still in course in CN, CA, IN, AT

Partner sought
