BRIEF


Summary

New New Idea contest on desall.com: Bormioli Pharma and Desall invite you to design an innovative delivery system for liquid drugs dedicated to the ophthalmic sector (eye care), with the aim of improving the patient experience relating to this category of products.


Company description

At Bormioli Pharma we design and manufacture pharmaceutical packaging systems, which every year arrive in the hands of millions of patients all over the world. We are present in Europe with 10 factories and we count on the commitment of more than 1400 people to bring our products to over 100 countries.

We like to consider ourselves a “start-up” with an experience of over 100 years, born in a historical industrial reality and become an independent company in 2017. This allows us to be solid and dynamic at the same time. In recent years we have invested relentlessly, strengthening our production capacities, acquiring new companies, but above all making innovation a lever for growth.

With this spirit we have created our own model of Open Innovation, a system based on the sharing of skills and the opening of our processes to the outside world. Because we believe that collaboration is the engine of change and that new ideas can improve people’s lives.

What we are looking for

Bormioli Pharma is looking for a multi-dose delivery system for the administration of ophthalmic products or ocular therapies in which the drug is taken in liquid form.
The main objective is therefore to search for alternatives to the current models of administration of multi-dose ophthalmic products in which administration via drops is favored, significantly improving the user experience.

NB. This contest deals with issues compatible with the Bormioli Pharma Ophthalmic Dosing Design contest, and it is therefore recommended to participate in both contests. If you wish to participate in both contests it will be necessary to make separate uploads for each contest, for the Bormioli Pharma Ophthalmic Delivery Design contest by presenting an in-depth analysis on delivery solutions, for the Bormioli Pharma Ophthalmic Dosing Design contest, by presenting an in-depth analysis on systems dosage.


Guidelines

For the correct realisation of your proposals, please take into consideration the following guidelines:

Product typology
Currently the products dedicated to the administration of liquids for ocular therapies can be:

● Disposable products, in which a single dose of substance is contained in a disposable vial printed together with a closure that can be torn off at the time of use.
● Multi-dose products consisting of a bottle (usually flexible), a screw cap and a delivery element (dropper). Some models feature a particular microbiological barrier to preserve the drug.

You are therefore invited to devise a new multi-dose delivery system (NOT disposable) consisting of:

● a dispenser that provides a completely different administration system from the current “drip” model.
● a container bottle in which the liquid drug is contained during its lifespan.
● the medical device that houses the dispenser and can be connected to the bottle.

The product must be simple to use, solving the main problems of the current delivery system, for example by changing the position of the hands and head during intake, the system with which the user keeps his eye open, the way in which the user center the the eye when applying the drug, hence completely changing the “drop” administration model, etc ...

Other aspects to consider are user safety during the administration phases and a design approach linked to environmental sustainability.

Methods of use
The liquid delivery and storage system will be used in a personal and independent way by patients and non-professional users, in contexts of daily routine, home/work/travel. Please note that the product can also be used by patients with disabilities (visually impaired, with motor problems in the limbs or hands). The issue of inclusiveness therefore becomes important in the proposal of solutions.
The product must be easily transportable and preferably usable with one hand.

Style
The aesthetics of the product must be minimal and modern. The product must communicate and ensure reliability, robustness, a sense of trustworthiness, safety and ease of use.

Colours
The container for infusion therapies must be transparent to allow anyone to check the level and state of the liquid inside.
For other color indications, refer to the corporate visual identity of Bormioli Pharma.

Logo
You are encouraged to include the graphic symbol that makes up the company logo on the case of the product, ensuring that it receives adequate visibility. The vector file of the logo to be inserted is provided in the material files that can be downloaded from the contest page.

Dimensions
The product must be sized with reference to bottles with a capacity between 5 and 20 ml.

Materials
The materials allowed are PET, PE, glass, rubbers/silicones suitable for pharmaceutical use.
