The Twincer® dry powder inhalation technique directly affects the quality of life of the patients using the device. Very obvious the high comfort of medication intake. The single use device travels with you in your pocket and can be used any time any place. Probably more important is the high effectiveness and the stability of medication intake. The patented Twincer® technology provides you with the best possible medication intake. Due to the single use design the continuous infection risks of multiple use devices is eliminated.

The technology has many proven applications including:

Antifungals

Diagnostics

Cystic fibrosis

Tuberculosis

Cyclosporine A

Vaccines (e.g. influenza)
