XstalBio Ltd announced the launch of CentuRecon™, a new patented reconstitution technology that has the potential to revolutionise the preparation of high concentration protein solutions from dry powders and make delivery faster and safer.

Biologic drugs such as monoclonal antibodies are a major growth area for the pharmaceutical industry but their delivery by subcutaneous administration provides unique challenges. This new technology enables dry formulations of therapeutic proteins to be prepared for injection at high concentration in minutes, rather than hours, and produces foam-free solutions that maximise the deliverable dose. 

CentuRecon™ works well with standard lyophilised formulations and diluents and with normal vials, cartridges or dual-chamber syringes. It is particularly beneficial for very high concentration and/or viscous solutions that may need to be delivered with injection devices. Read more
