  • Patent number: 10500355
    Abstract: The invention relates to a system composed of an inhaler and a capsule, preferably intended for single use. The capsule contains a preferably powdered pharmaceutical preparation which, for inhalation, is expelled from the capsule through at least one hole. The capsule comprises as capsule elements a capsule cap and a capsule body, at least one of which comprises at least one prefabricated hole. The prefabricated hole in the capsule is sealed off in the transporting state of the system and is open in the usage state. The hole is exposed by actuation of a pulling mechanism. Prior to this the hole is closed off by a capsule receptacle or a film. In one embodiment the capsule may be present in two different states, for example in different insertion positions of the capsule elements. In the first state the prefabricated hole is closed off and in the second it is exposed. Also shown is an inhaler suitable as a disposable product, which is manufactured from thermoformed parts or from blister film.

  • Patent number: 10220165
    Abstract: The invention relates to a capsule for receiving a preferably powdered pharmaceutical preparation and an inhaler in which, for inhalation, the preparation is expelled from the capsule through at least one hole. A capsule according to the invention comprises as capsule elements a capsule cap and a capsule body, at least one of which comprises at least one prefabricated hole. Systems according to the invention comprising inhalers and capsules are described, in which the prefabricated hole in the capsule is sealed off in the transporting state of the system and is open in the usage state. The hole is exposed by actuation of a pushing or pulling mechanism. Prior to this the hole is closed off by part of the capsule itself or by a capsule receptacle belonging to the inhaler. In one embodiment the capsule may be present in two different states, for example in different insertion positions of the capsule elements. In the first state the prefabricated hole is closed off and in the second it is exposed.

  • Patent number: 10124125
    Abstract: A nebulizer includes an insertable container and a securing mechanism for holding the container in the nebulizer such that the container can move back and forth but cannot be separated. The securing mechanism is formed by a metal unitary part. The securing mechanism forms a transportation lock for holding the container unmovable in the housing in a delivery state of the nebulizer. The securing mechanism forms a cage which encompasses the container.

  • Patent number: 9457161
    Abstract: An inhaler for delivering a preferably powdered formulation from a blister strip having a plurality of blister pouches. In order to achieve a compact simple construction for the inhaler and an easy action for the blister strip, the carrier extends over a circumferential angle of the inhaler of less than 360°. In particular, the carrier is guided between two deflectors with an at least substantially constant curvature, and preferably, exclusively along an outer wall of the inhaler. A conveying device of the inhaler has four drive wheels of the same diameter which are arranged on a common radius and are driven by common drive means in the same direction of rotation.

  • Patent number: 9050428
    Abstract: A device, cartridge and method for dispensing a liquid, preferably a drug, are proposed. The liquid is pressurized in a cartridge to a first lower pressure and, then, pressurized in doses by a pump to a second higher pressure. A valve arranged between the cartridge and the pump is normally closed and/or opened only temporarily. Thus, evaporation and dripping of liquid can be avoided or minimized.
