WHO ARE WE 

Anodyne is a preclinical-stage biotech company developing differentiated, transdermal forms of
high-value drugs.

 

The company’s patent-pending, porous microneedle technology provides the first practical and cost-effective platform, Hero Patch, to deliver clinically meaningful doses of

macromolecules (such as monoclonal antibodies) or small molecules (such as ibuprofen) for fast and sustained delivery.

We pride ourselves on providing a painless experience for all of those involved in the production, delivery, and consumption of medicines.

OUR VISION

At Anodyne Nanotech, we believe that the delivery of necessary medication should not and will not be a painful process. For anyone involved. For hundreds of years, needles and syringes have been used to deliver medicine, and innovation is long overdue.

The Hero Patch is the first platform capable of efficiently delivering large enough quantities of medicine to begin replacing antiquated and cumbersome injections.


Together, we will redefine drug delivery.
