Metered Dose Inhalers (MDI)
Our technical understanding and expertise of the metered dose inhaler goes back to when we created the very first one, over 50 years ago. Our experience spans the entire system, from feasibility to selecting the right components – valves, canisters and dose counters – through to commercial scale production. We take the risk out of commercializing your new product, from start to finish.
In a cost focused environment and as inhalation products come off patent, it is essential to bring high quality inhaled generics to market quickly. Experience in developing products and navigating the patent landscape, as well as a proven track record of gaining MDI approval with global regulatory agencies are essential in achieving this goal. The ability to incorporate differentiated technologies into new and existing products also helps to increase competitiveness and extend a products life. From providing differentiated components, formulation understanding, contract manufacturing and a record of single-cycle FDA reviews, we have the expertise and experience to help you be successful in the inhaled generics market.
Dose by Dose Counters
With a clear, accurate display that patients love, our Dose by Dose Counters help increase compliance in medication regimens and can differentiate your product. It's also the first FDA-approved dose counter (in conjunction with an MDI product) available to clients. Differentiate your product by making it count with the 3M integrated dose by dose counter.
Our experience means that we understand the MDI from the inside out – ensuring we can provide you with the right component solution. Whether it is integrating a 3rd party component or supplying a component designed and manufactured by 3M, we understand what will work best for your product. Easy fill; accurate dosing; pressure fill and cold fill valves; coated and plain cans; sleeved cans – whatever requirements you have, our technology and knowledge can be leveraged to differentiate your product.
