BD’s inclusive autoinjector wins Good Design Award

Published on: 20th April 2021

We are delighted to announce that BD and DCA Design International have won a GOOD DESIGN® Award 2020 for BD’s Intevia™ 2.25mL auto-injector.

Founded in 1950, GOOD DESIGN® is one of the world’s most prestigious, recognised, and oldest Design Awards program organized annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.

Developed specifically to effectively and safely administer a variety of biologic medicines of differing viscosities up to 40cP, BD Intevia™ 2.25mL is a fully mechanical, high performance, 2-step push on skin disposable autoinjector.

BD Intevia™ 2.25mL is the product of an evidence-based development approach. In-depth user research was carried out to determine and assess ergonomic requirements as well as aesthetic preference. DCA’s design work held these user needs in primary focus whilst carefully integrating them with the foundational technical architecture. This has resulted in a simple to use device that offers a platform for dose viscosity customisation within a visually attractive yet highly ergonomic form factor. 

DCA Senior Sector Manager, Malcolm Boyd commented ‘It is fantastic that the visual design of BD Intevia 2.25mL has been recognised with such a prestigious accolade – congratulations to all involved!”
