News Jan 06, 2010
Bioject Medical Technologies Inc. has announced that it has established a strategic alliance with MPI Research, a leading pre-clinical research organization with experience in the development of injectable therapeutics.
“Bioject and MPI Research share an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit that creates a synergy vital to our industry. It is a pleasure to collaborate with a company that has such highly-developed technological expertise and strategic vision.”
The strategic alliance creates a preferred partnership relationship which allows Bioject to gain access to a range of capabilities and resources needed for the company to explore our drug+device opportunities, including access to pharmacologic, analytical, safety and other preclinical testing resources available at MPI Research.
The strategic alliance offers MPI Research the opportunity to provide Bioject’s needle-free technology as an alternate delivery option to current drug/biologic manufacturers who may be interested in seeking a highly competitive and differentiable drug+device brand.
This alliance also increases the possibility that Bioject and MPI Research may be able to secure government sponsored grants or funding directed at improvements in drug+device or vaccine+device based treatments, which could also lead to potential new drug+device combinations.
