THE INNOVATIVE RESPONSE
TO THE RISING TRENDS OF
PRECISE DRUG APPLICATION

GEKA HEALTHCARE has recently been created, driven by an increasing market demand for innovative solutions improving the way a drug or cosmetic is applied by / to the patient, precisely and hygienically.

If patients can easily find DEPOSITION systems for liquid / semi-solid drugs, they face a real lack of suitable APPLICATION systems for these drugs, in particular if looking for precise and hygienic dosing with pharma applicators. Therefore, we have adapted a proven technology used in cosmetics to provide systems that combine these two attributes to fulfill pharmaceuticals and cosmetics needs.

The systems developed and manufactured by GEKA HEALTHCARE use APPLICATORS WITH EXTREMELY DELICATE MICRO-BRISTLES, resulting from many years of expertise in injection molding technology and patented processes.

 

In summary, more comfort for patients and unprecedented benefits for the healthcare sector.



SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS CALL
FOR SPECIAL SOLUTIONS

POOR PERFORMANCE OF CURRENT MARKETED
APPLICATION SYSTEMS

Current application systems - including cotton tips, flocked applicators, spatulas, nail brushes, fingers, etc. - present major drawbacks such as lack of application precision and dosage, fibers detachment, poor hygiene, lack of sterility.









With GEKA Healthcare, we are concentrating on the evolving requirements in the public health sector. Hence, we have matched our innovative solutions perfectly to specific product and customer requirements.
This means: the formulation can be picked up under absolutely hygienic conditions and applied with extreme precision – even for the most sensitive and pinpoint application areas. The result: increased efficacy and simultaneous reduction of side-effects as non affected areas are omitted.

Our know-how in the cosmetics industry, which we developed over the course of decades, makes it possible for you to profit from a great variety of synergies and to access existing technologies, patents and platforms.

Our innovative solutions for extremely precise application systems:
 

  • Micro-bristle injection molding
     
  • Moltrusion® technology
     
  • Single and multiple application systems

ALL APPLICATORS PATENTED


INNOVATIVE 
PRODUCTS AND CONCEPTS

  • Various possible platforms

    • Dip-in (patient dips applicator in the formulation and then applies it)

    • Flow-through & flow-around (patient presses a container with formulation, allowing product to flow between the micro-bristles of the applicator)

  • Various usage formats

    • Single use dip-in applicators sticks

    • Single use flow-through / flow-around applicators on monodose tubes, on Blow Fill Seal (BFS)

    • Multiple-use applicators mounted in caps, on tubes, pumps, airless

    • Fully customized concepts



Neopac and GEKA introduce Twist‘n‘brush™

The Twist’n’brush™ packaging uniquely combines Neopac’s proven Twist’n’use™ system for single applications with the extremely fine micro-bristles from GEKA. This enables a simple, precise, and hygienic application by the consumer. When the nozzle is twisted, the internal tamper-evident pin is detached and the liquid or semi-solid contents can be applied precisely, without being contaminated. The tube and applicator can also be sterilized using gamma rays.


rommelag and GEKA introduce Blow-Fill-Seal (BFS) bottelpack®
rommelag blow-fill-seal (BFS) bottelpack® is a cost-effective alternative to existing dosing systems and offers application options for skin and oral care, dental health, nail, and foot care, animal care, or over-the-counter drugs. The BFS bottelpack® containers are aseptically molded, filled in an operating cycle, and sealed. The GEKA micro-bristle applicator is incorporated during this process. The advantages of the cost-effective single-dose packaging can be seen in the precise application and intuitive, hygienic application.
