Applicators for drug delivery
Shape design for optimal administration
Optimally shaped applicators for nasal sprays
Bringing active ingredients to the right place
Medication has to be delivered to the right place in order to take full effect. For administration, different applicators interface with the patient: spray heads, intubators, masks, flexible and rigid access devices such as tubes and cannulas. Different functions must be fulfilled, such as active ingredient transfer, comfort and safety. Which applicator will give you the best result? In any case, the shape must fit the individual anatomy. This also applies to active substances administered via the respiratory tract. In nasal sprays, the spray head represents the interface with the patient’s nose. We support you in the target group-oriented tailoring of applicators for nasal sprays.
Nose shapes are manifold.
The spectrum of nose shapes is broad. Whether narrow or wide, straight or crooked, saddle, hump or hook nose. With our 3D shape analysis we find out in detail where noses are similar or where they differ significantly. We provide you with representative measurements and 3D models based on many nose shapes within a population. We support you in reconciling anatomical diversity with your product specifications. Design your range of nasal spray applicators with us so that you can offer the right solution for every nose.
Shape and function optimized applicators for every need
Administering drugs optimally by means of a nasal spray means delivering a quantity of active ingredient to the target site without loss. This is because a drug should either wet the nasal mucous membranes over a large area or reach the airways as deeply as possible, while ensuring comfortable and safe use for patients.
We support you in developing suitable pump sprays with anatomically shaped spray heads that meet your respective administration specifications and optimize, for example, pressure, spray opening and spray angle. We test the fit of your products or help you design better fitting products.
