Inhalers can be complex for patients to use, which can reduce their effectiveness in treating a medical condition. With multiple components, inhalers can also be expensive to assemble and manufacture.

To address these issuex, Perlen Packaging introduced PERLAMEDâ„¢-BLISTair, designed as a single-use, disposable device that contains an air intake, mouthpiece and powder enclosure and opening system. The company says it completely manufactures the device on a blister machine, with the thermoformed packaging actually serving as the device itself.

For consumers, handling the device is intuitive: simply pull a lash of the device to open up the powder chamber and inhale the API.

The device uses a simple design and is said to permit low manufacturing costs. In recent months it has won several awards, including the following:

  • German packaging Award 2018
  • Swiss packaging Award 2018
  • Central Swiss Innovation award
  • AluTrophy Award 2018
  • Corporate Award 2018
  • CPHI Award best drug delivery device 2017
  • Worldstar Packaging Award 2018
