H&T Presspart, a firm based in Lancashire, UK, has announced that it will be releasing the PowdAir Plus dry powder inhaler. The device, originally developed by Hovione Technology, a spinoff of Hovione, a Portuguese company, is designed for the developing world where attention to cost is acute and the need is severe.
The PowdAir Plus uses capsule drug cartridges, including gelatin and hypromellose (HPMC), doesn’t require much learning or getting used to, and consists of only four plastic parts that are easy to manufacture.
A tray is opened and a capsule is placed inside. Once the capsule is positioned and the tray closed, the device automatically pierces the capsule in preparation for inhalation.
Though the device has a final design, H&T Presspart offers customizing options for pharma firms looking to use it alongside their dry powder inhaled medications.
