Metered-dose Inhaler (MDI) Surface Treatment

H&T Presspart is pleased to announce that we will be presenting at the Inhalation Drug Delivery Association (IDDA) conference which is being held in Nanjing, China from the 19-21 October 2018.

Anselm Ebert, Business Development Director, will be presenting to the conference on October 20th with his presentation entitled: ‘The HFA Challenge- The canister role as an integral part of the pMDI drug delivery system.’

The speech will discuss H&T Presspart’s plasma surface treatment process – manufactured under license from Portal Medical Ltd – for treating the internal surfaces of metered-dose inhaler (MDI) canisters.

H&T Presspart’s Plasma surface treatment enhances drug stability in formulations where interactions with the aluminium substrate can lead to product degradation in solution and suspension formulations. Also, Plasma ensures that the active drug content doesn’t stick to the internal canister wall. This solves a problem present in many other MDI cans and ensures the patient gets the correct dose

Attendees to the conference can also visit the H&T Presspart team at our exhibition booth, where we will be displaying our full range of respiratory drug delivery components including MDI cans and MDI actuators. Also on the stand will be PowdAir Plus, our recently launched capsule-based dry powder inhaler which is a simple and cost effective solution for developing markets such as Asia.

The Inhalation Drug Delivery Association (IDDA) was established on November 18, 2013 in Nanjing, China.
