for Next-Gen Drug Delivery
We bring innovation to reality through next-gen design, applications engineering and rapid solution development for the medical industry.
Innovation in everything we do.
Driving innovation with our leak-free cylinder designs and sub-systems through thought leadership, a commitment to experiential design and rapid development, and state-of-the-art cleanroom manufacturing facilities.
The Game Changing Pico-System
Our leak-free, superior quality Pico-cylinders, Opener Pins, Actuators, and Drive Sub-Assemblies are designed from the ground up to deliver exacting performance and unsurpassed reliability.
Our breakaway septum Pico-cylinders have the lowest and most controlled opening forces on the planet. Our patented septum design combines this low puncture force with high reliability burst integrity.
Our valve-release Pico-cylinders contain a spring-loaded valve that allows for partial gas release, resealing, and vacuum purging and filling to ensure highest purity gas transfer.
Our Opener Pins have been intentionally designed, tested, and manufactured to reliably open breakaway septum Pico-cylinders, simplifying downstream manufacturing processes and quality checks.
Our custom Actuators puncture the Pico-cylinder, seal off the gas, and integrate into your device to optimize design architecture, ergonomics, and human factors.
The Pico-cylinder was created out of necessity…
Compressed Gas in Pico-Cylinders as a
Single Use Medical Device Energy Source
Compressed gas cylinders offer several advantages over batteries, motors, and springs. The energy density is higher than springs and the power density is higher than batteries. No additional devices are required to convert the energy into mechanical work, simplifying device designs.
We are an ISO 13485 certified manufacturer with advanced automated gas filling and sealing, laser marking traceability, onsite gas blending, and multistage leak-free in-process verifications.
Our engineering team transforms concepts into finished products using state of the art design and analysis tools; in-house prototyping and model shop; quick-turn and production mold tooling; design for manufacturability; and decades of proven product development.
We leverage our proven skills and experience to save our customers time and money by integrating Pico-cylinders into medical devices, and specialized applications.
Picocyl performs complex system level reviews to ensure that you will have a reliable Pico-cylinder implementation using dynamic, thermal, structural, and tolerance analyses. We assess puncture reliability, Opener Pin design, puncture architecture, and manufacturability.
Identifying the right Pico-cylinder size, gas type, and fill mass, are challenges we solve on a regular basis. Whatever your needs are, we would love to create a solution for you.
Does your drug or implantable need a delivery device? Picocyl creates custom solutions using our gas-powered Pico-cylinder technology.
Our manufacturing facility and quality system were meticulously designed from the ground up with a focus on the exacting standards of medical device manufacturing.
