Aptar Pharma has introduced a new portable and ready-to-use drug delivery solution, dubbed PureHale, for upper respiratory care.
The PureHale device has been developed for use in combination with saline or other natural ingredient formulations to help relieve the symptoms of upper respiratory system conditions.
The need for upper respiratory relief is becoming crucial, as a result of increasing pollution.
PureHale features bag-on-valve system, which is an advanced technology that distributes a continuous fine mist between 20µm and 30µm, enabling to clean, moisturize and sooth the upper respiratory tract.
The device will allow to reduce irritations caused by coughs, colds, allergies, respiratory problems and dry nose/throat issues.
PureHale’s portability enables consumers to relieve their symptoms wherever and whenever required and it does not need batteries or the prefilling of a reservoir compared to traditional nebulizers.
Lighter than traditional nebulizers, the PureHale technology platform also offers mask and mouthpiece options, allowing to provide adaptable treatment and making suitable for family use.
Aptar Pharma business development director Guenter Nadler said: “We are really excited to announce this newest Aptar Pharma innovation. We have seen a real need for a device of this kind – traditional nebulizers come with a set of challenges including complexities in setup, manual dexterity requirements and overall usage time.
“Meanwhile, challenges during medication administration include poor inhalation technique, duration of nebulization and understanding how to achieve optimal efficacy. PureHale has been designed specifically with these challenges in mind and offers a solution by simplifying the entire process.”
The company will exhibit the new PureHale ready-to-use drug delivery solution at this year’s CPhI Worldwide event in Madrid, Spain, which will be held on 9 October.
