Aptar: Drug delivery devices

Two new electronic delivery eDevice platforms, e-Dose Counter and e-Lockout from Aptar Pharma are specially aimed at improving patient compliance.
FILED IN:  Package Type  > Containers  > Specialty

 e-Dose Counter is a cost effective solution which meets regulatory recommendations for nasal and sub-lingual spray delivery of controlled substances.  The use of electronics allows the counting display to be large and highly-visible making it suitable for patients of all conditions and ages. Electronics can also provide patient comfort features such as acoustic feedback and flashing displays to inform and warn.

e-Lockout counts and displays the number of actuations and prevents the device from being used for a period of time after a predefined number of actuations.  Its locking system, which warns of overdosing, is recommended by regulators for nasal and sub-lingual spray delivery of controlled substances used in breakthrough pain management. In addition to counting and displaying the number of actuations and locking, some of the key features which can also be incorporated into e-Lockout include patient aids and feedback as well as data transmission.
