Maxime - Roche

SMi are delighted to have interviewed our speaker Maxime Gaillot, Senior Device Engineer, Roche, for Injectable Drug Delivery!

Maxime Gaillot works for Roche since 2011. He has 15 years’ experience in the medical device and polymer industry. After some years, in the plastic closure industry, Maxime started his career in the Medical Device industry at Novartis. He worked on the development of a dual chamber pen injector and an electronic reusable injector.

Since 2011 at Roche, he was a single mater expert for Needle Safety Device and supported the filing for a Rheumatoid Arthritis treatment and the development of the Roche Needle Safety Training Device.


Q. What will the conference attendees be able to learn from the presentation?

A. "To address more complex dosing regimens (e.g. weight based-dosing regimens) where a prefilled syringe is not a viable or the quickest solution, Roche has developed a vial based dosing device that can be used at home by patients or caregivers and could be available as a stand-alone device for any pharmaceutical company."

Q. How will vial based delivery technology impact the end users, patients?

A. "The delivery device was developed around the user (e.g. patients, caregivers and HCPs) in order to offer ease of use and excellent dosing accuracy. This technology is intended to provide users a simpler, safer and faster approach for the preparation and administration of sub-cutaneous drugs. The dosing is mechanically driven, which allows for better precision and greater dose accuracy. Additionally, the device technology has potential for applications beyond its originally intended design scope."

Q. What are the most exciting emerging technologies?
