NuGen Medical Devices provide easy and painless injections without needles

Having spent far too much time over the last two years watching Netflix, reading fiction and playing video games, it has become apparent to me that my brain is starting to blur the lines between reality and fantasy. As I started doing my homework for today’s company and their needle-free injection technology, I was thinking what’s the big deal. I’ve seen that for decades now, at least on Star Trek. Then I started to think about it a little more. I’ve never had a needle free injection, nor has it ever been an option for me. I’ve also never spoken to, or even heard of anyone getting a needle free injection. All of sudden it dawned on me that something I just assumed was already “a thing”, was instead leading-edge science and also pretty awesome.

The company with this cool technology is NuGen Medical Devices Inc. (TSXV: NGMD). The Company’s principal business is the development and commercialization of innovative needle-free injection devices and systems for the administration of subcutaneous medication. It is developing products using needle-free drug delivery technology in several important fields including, but not limited to, anaphylaxis, diabetes, severe migraine, erectile dysfunction, chronic anemia, neutropenia, autoimmune rheumatoid arthritis, growth and fertility hormone, psoriasis as well as DNA and conventional/pediatric vaccines. Their flagship product – InsuJet™ is a revolutionary needle-free drug delivery device, used to self-administer medication in a safe, fear-free, and virtually pain-free manner and is now approved for use in over 40 countries globally.

Explaining how it works may seem somewhat obvious, but because we’re talking about science fiction becoming reality, I’m going to do it anyway. The liquid drug is inserted into the NuGen device, which uses a simple, but powerful, spring-loaded mechanism. Pressure is built up and releases the drug as a fine jet stream of liquid, traveling fast enough to penetrate the skin via a microscopic entrance. In less than one-tenth of a second, the drug is dispensed more safely and evenly compared to needle syringes. It’s also virtually painless and leaves no mark on the skin. The graphic below also depicts how the medication is more evenly distributed. If you want to see a video animation of this, here is a link for readers.

As you can probably guess from the name (InsuJet™), the original focus was on serving insulin dependent diabetic patients. Diabetics manage blood sugar levels through daily administration of insulin, often three to four times per day. Aside from making life more convenient and cost effective for diabetics, this market becomes obvious when you look at the statistics. Diabetes has become one of the leading causes of deaths worldwide. According to the World Health Organization, around 1.5 million people worldwide died due to diabetes in 2019. It is estimated that 463 million people are living with diabetes all over the world and by 2045, projections show this number rising to some 700 million diabetics globally. Sadly, it doesn’t stop there. According to Diabetes Canada, complications related to diabetes are serious and can be life-threatening. Annually, people living with diabetes account for:

  • 30% of strokes;
  • 40% of heart attacks;
  • 50% of kidney failure requiring dialysis; and,
  • 70% of non-traumatic amputations.

It becomes readily apparent that it is a ‘no-brainer’ for this device to become a primary tool for improving the lives of diabetics. But to me, that’s just the beginning. Having just seen the world administer billions of COVID vaccines, and thinking about all the single use needles that went along with that, I have to think the InsuJet™ would make for a way better solution on that front as well. And I’m not the only one thinking that way. The Company just signed a landmark partnership deal with Unifire Inc. to market and distribute its needle-free injection device to United States Government agencies.

Mr. Douglas Bryce, Former Joint Program Executive Officer for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND) for the US Army is quoted in the press release as saying “The disruptive nature of the needle-free injection solution to improve the standard of care for members and the general public cannot be understated. The safe, rapid, and effective delivery of medication through this device are within the mandates of the government to improve care, reduce waste and lower costs. As such, I believe there is significant opportunity within the Department of Defense and Military operated medical facilities as well as inclusion within the casual combat care packages, global vaccination efforts and many others.” There you have it from someone with way more credibility than me.

I believe this is the logical evolution of injecting anything into your body, and not just because I saw it on Star Trek (well maybe a little). The addressable market is enormous. However, we’ll have to wait and see how things progress for NuGen Medical Devices as they’ve only been trading publicly since November, 2021 and thus far have no representative quarterly results. What I do know is they have a market cap of roughly C$22 million which means there could be some significant upside if the world demands their next vaccination or injection be needleless.




How NASDAQ listed Zentek is a ‘wow’ company with enormous potential to tap into several multi-billion dollar industries.

Every once in a while investors will come across a ‘wow’ company. This is a company that just wows you with their performance and their stock price.

For me the ‘wow’ company of the last year is Zentek Ltd. (NASDAQ: ZTEK | TSXV: ZEN). Just take a look at the stock chart below, showing the stock rising a staggering 9.7x over the past approximately year and a half. The good news for investors is that the recent pullback allows for a better entry price than when the stock peaked at C$6.50.

Today I give a brief summary of Zentek for new investors and an update on their progress in 2022.

Zentek’s business summary

Zentek describe themselves as “an IP development and commercialization company focused on next-gen healthcare solutions in the areas of prevention, detection and treatment.” I prefer to think of them as a nanotechnology and graphene company (they were formerly known as ZEN Graphene Solutions) that has expanded into multiple areas of commercialization; particularly into the healthcare sector with a product for prevention, detection and treatment of numerous pathogens.

Areas/products of commercialization for Zentek include:

  • ZenGUARD™ – A patent-pending ‘graphene-silver coating’ shown to have 99% antimicrobial activity, including against COVID-19. The coating can be used for PPE applications (including nitrile gloves, gowns, footwear coverings and surgical caps) and also in air purifiers. According to Zentek: “ZenGUARD™-coated masks removed 98.9% more bacteria and 97.8% more virus compared to a typical ASTM Level 3, 3-ply uncoated, resulting in over 99.99% BFE and VFE ratings.” ZenGUARD™ has Health Canada approval (Medical Device Establishment License, “MDEL”) and production facilities are being readied for first orders.  Zentek is commercializing ZENGuardTM with mask manufacturer Trebor Rx, but can also work with other manufacturers.
  • Pathogen Detection Technology (aptamer-enabled) – A low cost, rapid, saliva testing, scalable technology to detect numerous pathogens, initially to be used for COVID-19 testing.
  • Antimicrobial therapies – In-vitro testing shows 99.9% effectiveness against bacteria, fungi and viruses.
  • Air conditioner filter coating – Zentek has experimented with past partners to use graphene oxide coated filters to help remove moisture from the air and make air conditioners up to 75% more energy efficient.
  • Icephobic graphene coatings – Potential to significantly increase safety for vehicles such as drones, aircraft, ocean vessels, wind turbines, and other applications where, in cold weather climates, there is the potential for ice to accrete on surfaces. An ‘icephobic’ surface repels ice build up.
  • Others – Graphene tires, graphene in concrete, fuel additives (potential to reduce GHG emissions from diesel and bio-diesel fuels by as much as 10%), and graphene for batteries.

Zentek’s latest news and progress in 2022

Zentek announced on February 18, 2022 the development of graphene-wrapped silicon anodes. Zentek CEO Greg Fenton stated: “Not only were the researchers able to demonstrate good performance with laboratory-scale half-cells, the performance was also validated with commercial lithium iron phosphate cathodes suggesting they could be a drop-in solution for enhancing already available battery technologies. We look forward to continuing our support of their research and development to potentially bring this technology to market. The company has begun discussions with a potential industry partner.”

As reported on February 28, 2022, Zentek’s Guelph production facility is now fully licensed and permitted for ZenGUARD™ production and substantially all equipment has been received to ramp-up industrial scale capacity. First orders have been received and the ZenGUARD™ international patent is due shortly. As reported on January 13, Zentek has entered into a binding letter of intent with GMAF Circular Medico ApS to produce and sell ZENGuard™-enhanced GMAF trademarked recyclable surgical masks.

With regards to the Pathogen Detection Technology, Zentek continues to work to bring the product to market as soon as practicable, which will require having a working prototype prepared, having conducted baseline studies, and having made applications to regulatory bodies.

With regards to Zentek’s icephobic coatings, they are currently undergoing full flight trials on a specially equipped research aircraft under real world ice-forming weather conditions.

Zentek’s new manufacturing facility in Guelph, Ontario, Canada is set for commissioning shortly

Closing remarks

Zentek really is a ‘wow’ company with enormous potential to tap into several multi-billion dollar industries. Focusing on pathogens (viruses, bacteria, fungi) prevention, detection, and treatment is simply staggering. Then there are multiple other applications for Zentek’s products, the most recent being graphene-wrapped silicon anodes that can potentially be used to create better EV batteries and the icephobic coatings opportunity.

In terms of commercialization, Zentek is already advancing with ZenGUARD™ in terms of a production facility and orders, with the ZenGUARD™ patent due very soon and production from Zentek’s new Guelph facility set to begin very soon.

Finally, Zentek is now getting the exposure it deserves with a NASDAQ listing that began on March 22, 2022, under the ticker “ZTEK”. Not surprisingly the stock rose 25.93% on March 23.

Zentek has C$32 million in cash, no debt, and looks like being a ‘wow’ company again in 2022. Stay tuned.

Zentek responds to naysayers and asks “What’s all the fuss about?”

The dreaded “short report” is an article or research report that focusses on anything and everything negative about a company and tries to make it sound like the most inept or corrupt organization on the planet, typically for the benefit of the author and their acquaintances. Granted in some instances analysis of this type is warranted, but in many cases it’s more of an attempt to make a mountain out of a mole hill and take advantage of “weak” shareholders. By that I mean investors who don’t read each quarterly MD&A, the latest corporate presentation, or Annual Information Form and who could get spooked by what sounds like a legitimate negative case without fully understanding the positive case which led them to invest in the first place. I will give short report authors credit as they typically have done plenty of homework and likely know a lot more about what’s going on in a company than the average long investor, but it isn’t always the fairest representation of a company.

Zentek Ltd. (TSXV: ZEN | OTC: ZENYF) was recently on the receiving end of one of these critical reviews. As a reminder, Zentek (formerly known as ZEN Graphene Solutions Ltd.) is an IP development and commercialization company that uses expertise in nanomaterials and strategic partnerships to break through the barriers of molecular science and uncover new possibilities in healthcare and beyond. The Company is focused on next-gen healthcare solutions in the areas of prevention, detection and treatment.

The report in question was posted on Seeking Alpha early last week and led to a pretty wild day of trading with a 36% price swing from high to low, although the stock ultimately closed higher than the day before the report was published. I’ve read through the Seeking Alpha report and there’s some speculation in there that challenges the imagination a bit. Other parts are simply portraying the glass as half empty, so to speak, versus half full. However, the key issue that caused the frothy trading on March 8th, in my opinion, is related to a lawsuit filed against Zentek over a year ago that the Company hadn’t disclosed anywhere. They addressed the issue in press releases on March 8th and further on March 9th.

Critically, Zentek states “As disclosed March 8, 2022, ZEN received a statement of claim from Graphene Composites Ltd. (“GC”) on January 29, 2021, for breach of confidentiality. The Company maintains that this claim is frivolous based on the fact the information shared by GC was already in the public domain. This position is supported by the public examiner’s response to Graphene Composites patent application #3,097,636 on April 27, 2021, where the examiner rejected 107 out of 108 claims made by Graphene Composites.” To me it’s a bit of a misstep to not get out in front of this from the get go and control the narrative. If they had press released the above quote in April, 2021 (regardless of whether it was thought to be frivolous or immaterial) instead of last week then perhaps all of this uncertainty could have been avoided. Hopefully, the lesson has been learned going forward.

The report of which we are speaking goes on to challenge the production and sales projections of ZenGUARD™ coated masks, especially in light of more recent developments where many major jurisdictions around the world are either reducing or eliminating mask mandates. The author is entitled to their opinion on this but arguably the world has changed somewhat over the last year, and all shareholders can make their own assessment on this topic. To me this is an example of focusing on the glass half empty. Perhaps the Company has over-promised and/or under-delivered with respect to ZenGUARD™ in the past but as I’ve noted, the last year has been the epitome of a moving target. It’s easy to criticize in hindsight.

Regardless of what I think or say, or the opinion of the Seeking Alpha report, as an investor you have to look forward and decide if the stock price today is warranted and if there is upside in the future. Despite the recent disclosure of a year old legal proceeding, the Company has addressed this issue to my satisfaction, so it is a non-issue to me going forward. It raised C$33 M in January and has a quarterly cash burn rate of roughly C$2-C$2.5 M per quarter (and no debt), so they are fine for available working capital. They have several business segments being pursued, of which ZenGUARD™ actually started generating revenue in the final quarter of 2021. Now the onus is on you as an investor to decide if Zentek is worth its C$292 M market cap.

NuGen Medical Devices advances its needle-free, pain-free, drug delivery system worldwide

No more needles needed for vaccines, diabetes and everyday medicine delivery

Do you know anyone who likes injections? Well today there is a new innovative and better way to administer medicines.

Injections are a common healthcare procedure, administered to billions every day, but now the technique is increasingly going needle-free. Needle-free delivery has many advantages over needles, including: Faster absorption of medicine, safer (eliminates cross-contamination), less expensive, sustainable (less waste), and reduced patient anxiety and fear.

The global needle-free injection market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 16.3% from US$11.8 billion in 2020 to US$25 billion in 2025

Source: NuGen Medical Devices company presentation

Today’s company is focused on ‘revolutionizing needle-free delivery’.

NuGen Medical Devices Inc. (TSXV: NGMD) (“NuGen”) is an emerging specialty medical device company focused on developing and commercializing novel drug delivery technologies. The company commercializes a Health Canada and CE approved ‘needle-free injection’ system (known as “InsuJet™ “) catering to a wide range of applications. 

NuGen state: “NuGen’s needle-free injection system is the first ever self-administered needle-free injection system approved by Health Canada and gives access to safe, cost-effective drug delivery for the millions of patients who suffer from diabetes or other chronic illnesses.”

NuGen’s needle-free injection systems have almost unlimited uses in modern medicine. One of the most common is for diabetes management where children often need to inject themselves with insulin several times a day. Another common use is at the medical clinic where a doctor delivers a vaccine or medicine, or perhaps a COVID-19 booster. Other examples are IVF (Intravenous Feeding) treatments, human growth hormone treatments and so on.

NuGen’s needle-free product “InsuJet™ ” and how it works

NuGen’s Nanojex device works by painlessly delivering medicines through the skin, using a gas jet to accelerate powdered nanoparticles of drug or protein to supersonic speed with a single-use, disposable, handheld device.

Examples of uses for NuGen’s needle-free ‘Nanojex’

Global approval and rollout of NuGen’s products

NuGen Medical Devices have achieved multiple regulatory approvals, and the company is cleared to sell its devices in over 40 countries, including Health Canada approval.

NuGen has already signed multiple sales and distribution agreements. Some recent examples include:

  • Feb. 1, 2022 – “InsuJet™ Needleless Injection Devices to administer “Insulin Without Fear” for Children with Diabetes in Taiwan.”
  • Jan 18, 2022 – “NuGen M.D. announces a $333,000 5-year distribution agreement with Intermediq for its InsuJet™ Needle-Free Injection Device.”
  • Nov. 30, 2021 – “NuGen Announces a $5.8 million, 5-Year Distribution Agreement with Khotwa Medical Co. for its InsuJet Needle Free Injection Device and accessories.”

Management, board and advisors

NuGen spent 2021 getting product approvals and growing their management team and advisers. It is now an experienced and extensive team as you can view here on pages 12 & 13. Inside ownership stands at an impressive 20.8%.

Next steps

2022 looks set to be a big year for NuGen. NuGen states their 2022 objectives as follows:

  • “Secure additional global distribution and sales agreements with minimum yearly commitments for its needle-free injection device and consumables.
  • Supply a minimum 8,000 needle-free injection systems into the global market, generating one-time revenue for the device in addition to the recurring revenue of the consumables over the expected lifetime of a device (~3 to 5 years), both important revenue streams to the Company.
  • Submit for regulatory approvals in other key markets with high demand for our product line.
  • Continue to monitor the market for potential M&A opportunities in an effort to rapidly grow its sales and position itself as the global leader in needle-free injection technology.
  • Continue R&D on our next generation Needle-Free injection technologies.
  • Capitalize on the opportunity in the animal market to give pet owners access to safe, fear-free and virtually painless injections for their pets.”

Note: Bold highlight by the author.

Closing remarks

NuGen is now entering the stage of development of ramping up global sales and revenues. This means 2022 will be the most important year to date for NuGen. The product looks to be a winner, approvals and some distributions are in place. We will check back after some months to see how sales and revenues are performing.

NuGen Medical Devices trades on a market cap of only C$20 million. One to watch.
