Perlen Packaging revolutionizes dry powder inhalation

Pack Aktuell – In a genuine innovation within the dry powder inhalation segment, Perlen Packaging has unveiled the Perlamed Blistair, the world’s first thermoformed single-dose inhaler. The device consists of two thermoformed films that securely seal the active substance inside.
