/UCW/ PHOENIX, AZ & VANCOUVER, B.C. CANADA – Eternity Healthcare Inc. (OTC:[stock symbol=”ETAH”] ), announces it has signed a Development and Manufacturing Agreement with Wellmei Mold Company of Hong Kong (http://www.wellmei.com/indexen.html) for manufacturing nozzles for its needle-less syringes. Wellmei will provide roughly 30% in-kind support for the project, significantly lowering out of pocket costs for Eternity.
“We were delighted to contract with a partner such as Wellmei who not only has the proven manufacturing capability but the confidence in Eternity to absorb internal costs related to manufacturing our needle-less injector ‘nozzles’. These are costs we would otherwise have born but Wellmei shares the same vision of an enormous potential for our product that we do,” said, Dr. Salari, President & CEO of Eternity.
The initial production will consist of prototyping and testing the nozzles, which will be tested both physically and clinically for durability and performance. Once completed, Wellmei will design large scale commercial production molds to be submitted for regulatory approval.
“We chose Wellmei because they can easily scale up production to millions of nozzles per year, making them an ideal partner. Wellmei Mold is a multinational mold manufacturer with clients such as BD, Phillips, Gillet, Edgewell, etc. with proven experience in large scale manufacturing,” said Dr. Salari, “Our prototype manufacturing and development of the nozzles will take between 3-4 months to complete, after which we shall proceed to large scale production and regulatory approval.
“The Lenis® Needle-Free Injection system is comprised of four major components. With the second component having received CE Certification, we are looking forward to approval of the remaining two. This will then proceed to regulatory approval, a process which typically requires a minimum of 6 months.
“We believe Lenis® will revolutionize medical injections, removing patient fear of needles along with substantial reduction in cost per injection. The injection systems market was estimated at $9.8 Billion for 2016 and expected to grow at 15.5% until reaching $20.17 Billion in size by 2021. Unlike our competition, our design allows for delivery of higher doses, meaning Lenis® could be used with traditional needles and syringes used worldwide. We’re confident we have a superior technology,” said Dr. Salari.
