I was wondering why portal instruments is using a supercap. The answer is injection speed. From 10-30 to 1 sec:
Portal's needle-free injector and cartridge are components of a drug delivery platform for both biologics and biosimilars, completed and made available through biopharma partners. While many auto injectors on the market require patients to hold the needle onto their skin for 10 to 30 seconds, Portal's needle-free device can inject the same volume in less than a second. At the same time, this innovative type of injection has been shown to be less painful than a needle and syringe injection. And the injector is more than a drug delivery system: Thanks to its connectivity, adherence tracking, and customizable disease management becomes possible for both patient and medical care provider. Gerresheimer will support the development of the new technology, take part in manufacturing the reusable injector and supply cartridges that will contain the medicine.
According to Barkley Edison, a steam systems subject matter expert with Anheuser-Busch, the brewer spent the last 10 years searching for a steam trap-monitoring product before finding Everactive’s sensors. In a case study for Everactive, he said it can cost $500-$1,000 to replace a single battery, and since a single plant may have hundreds of steam traps, those costs are untenable.
