New award for Nemera with Safelia®

Nemera has won the ‘Editor’s choice’ category at the annual INTERPHEX Awards, for its 2 steps-autoinjector Safelia®

INTERPHEX and a team of industry experts select Nemera as winner for this year’s exhibitor awards as Editor’s choice

Safelia® is an innovative autoinjector for prefilled syringes, available for 1 and 2.25 m sizes, suitable for large volume and high viscosity delivery through thinner needles. Safelia® can mechanically “tune” the injection thanks to design adjustments.
