The Future of pMDIs: Plasma Technology

Sponsored by: Presspart

Focused on:

  • Plasma Technology

Date: 22 June

Days to go: 9

Time: 2PM London

An innovative and sustainable pMDI surface treatment

With the introduction of new propellants and more complex formulations, the pMDI canister plays an increasingly significant role in the safe and efficacious delivery of drug to the patient. The relationship between propellant, drug and canister has significantly changed, with the canister no longer being just a safe containment system, but an integral part of the drug delivery itself.

There is also an ever increasing demand for sustainable drug delivery solutions, with pharmaceutical companies already committing to carbon free pMDI’s. H&T Presspart’s plasma surface treatment for MDI canisters, delivers advantages over existing technologies, providing a sustainable solution whilst improving all aspects of drug delivery performance.

During the webinar, participants will gain an understanding of the manufacturing process for H&T Presspart’s pMDI plasma cans and the sustainability benefits of this manufacturing process over other coated can processes such as anodised and FEP coated cans. Participants will also see how H&T Presspart’s inspection and quality process ensures the whole of the internal surface of the can treated with plasma.

Participants will also hear how Plasma can improve inhaler performance and combat drug degradation and drug adhesion, a common problem with many pMDIs. We will show attendees independent data comparing H&T Presspart’s plasma can performance versus other treatment processes as well as discussing which APIs are most suitable for Plasma.
