The mesh technology of DTF

Color gradient of the deformation of the material

Two available devices

  • The idehaler mesh nebulizer: it could be used as an aerosol generator:
    - to reduce treatment times and
    - achieve high lung deposition for new drugs, making it suitable for biodrugs in development (based on in vitro and ex vivo studies).

  • The idehaler pocket nebulizer: the mesh nebulizer with a virtual valve holding chamber offers the advantage to be:
    - very small, portable,
    - easy to use.


We can adapt the device to your drug.
