A New Era for Mesh Nebulisers

Nebulisers have been an important device for inhalation therapy since their invention in the 19th century. Throughout the years, different technologies have been developed with the goal of further improving the treatment of respiratory diseases. Today, new devices offer the possibility to generate innovative approaches, overcoming previous limitations and widening the use of nebulisers in areas that have not been explored yet.

The Evolution of Nebulisers

To depict a clearer picture of the evolution of nebulisers, it is essential to start with the invention of the jet nebulisers, which resulted in a massive breakthrough when they were first introduced as a medical device in the respiratory field. This event constituted itself as a pillar that opened a new chapter in the history of inhalation therapy and still has vast implications nowadays. About a century later, in the mid-20th, the ultrasonic nebulisers were introduced with their new features and advantages. The objective of developing this new device was to improve nebulisation experience. However, it was not until the appearance of mesh nebulisers, at the end of the 20th century, that a revolution among nebulisers occurred, catching the attention of professionals in the medical field thanks to the higher levels of efficiency of these devices. Moreover, mesh nebulisers have been proven to broaden the areas of application when compared to their predecessors.

Detecting Integrity Breaches in a range of Pharmaceutical Blister Package Types using Sepha VisionScan

Sepha Limited

Demonstrating the integrity of pharmaceutical blister packs is critically important, as any defects can affect the shelf life and efficacy of the contents. Compared to bulk packaging, blister packs offer improved product integrity, tamper evidence and reduce the likelihood of misuse. Packs can be composed of either a thermoformed polymer or cold formed aluminium tray, with a number of individual pockets to hold the product. After the tablets or capsules are placed in the pockets, the packs are heat sealed with a paper or foil laminate sheet. These various stages can be completed separately or integrated into a single form, fill and seal process. There is a risk of microbial containment or degradation of the contents if any defects are present in the packaging. Such defects can take the form of rips or pinholes in the tray, or lid materials, faulty seals and channel leaks between pockets.
