Used in immunization initiatives such as the global polio eradication effort, their devices have been used for more than 5 million injections worldwide. Most notably, in 2018, during a mass vaccination campaign in Pakistan, Tropis was used to administer 500,000 vaccinations in 5 days; and separately another 900,000 injections for 3 weeks. For COVID-19, immunizations using Tropis™ for the world’s first EUA DNA plasmid vaccine are now underway – a great example of the positive impact that PharmaJet’s needle-free platforms can help bring new vaccines to market and new therapeutic indications against cancer.
