Cristalia products with Nemera’s reusable pen injector commercialized in Brazil.


Cristalia’s human growth hormone will be administered with CRISPEN®. Approved by ANVISA1, CRISPEN® is part of Nemera’s state-of-the-art pen injector platform PENDURA AD.

The advantages of the pen are several, according to Monique, Cristalia’s Biotechnology Scientific Manager.

“You can instantly feel the quality of our pen injector just by holding it in your hands. Its robust body gives you the stability you need during the application. When you trigger the injection, a little green ball appears indicating that it is complete, and you know you can remove the needle from the injection site. The injection has a constant flow that doesn’t require pressure, making the application smoother”
She said

CRISPEN® is a reusable, spring-assisted device dedicated to the administration of the growth hormone distributed by Cristalia. Based on Nemera’s proprietary PENDURA AD development platform, CRISPEN® facilitates the treatment of patients who have GH deficiency or insufficiency.

The treatment can be prepared only once, in advance and can be refrigerated for up to 28 days. Before injection, a simple turn of the dial is required to choose the desired dose. This ensures administration of the drug without error.

Some of the other features of CRISPEN® device include automatic, spring-assisted drug delivery and lateral positioning of the button. Together, these contribute to highest safety and comfort for patients.

“In the process of design of our pen injectors, safety and ease-of-use for patients play a key role. In PenDura AD platform, which was used to develop Crispen for Cristalia, we applied unique technological solutions such as ergonomic release button, low-force, spring-assisted drug delivery system as well as unambiguous user`s interface, which all were appreciated by patients all over the world. We are proud that sharing our patient-centric approach, Cristalia chose Nemera for the development of the pen for its somatropin”
Said Radoslaw Romanczuk, Pen Platform Business Development Director at Nemera
