BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Satio and INTACT Solutions have entered into an agreement to establish a collaborative framework in order to partner on research, development, manufacture, and deployment of next generation health technologies with the goal of offering alternative solutions to traditional needles with SatioRx™ intradermal patches for the Member States of the African Union and beyond.
The joint force aims to enable sharps injury free, rapid, and low-cost mass vaccinations. The first step of collaboration would focus on intradermal delivery of Yellow Fever vaccine, COVID (mRNA) vaccine, and malaria (a recombinant protein) vaccine. The collaboration will enable rapid access to vaccines by providing alternatives to traditional intramuscular injections with SatioRx™ intradermal patches and INTACT aseptic fluid transfer technology. Success of this endeavor will improve the readiness for future endemics and pandemics throughout the world.
Sharad Joshi, President & Chief Executive Officer of Satio, said, “The collaboration between Satio’s intradermal vaccine delivery patches and INTACT’s fluid transfer technology is exciting, as it holds the promise for clinically effective, lowest cost mass vaccination.”
“We are very pleased to be part of this research program with Satio and to continue the deployment of our technologies to improve vaccination around the world, and particularly in Africa,” said Benoit Portier, Chief Executive Officer of INTACT Solutions.
