Everything for Inhalation

Everything for Inhalation
Product Description

At Hovione we can tailor-make particle size distributions through complex particle engineering technologies, like wet-polishing and monosep, in ranges suitable for inhalation and incorporate desired morphology characteristics into your API. We are also able to start with a Hovione-produced API and develop a dry powder formulation to meet your inhalation product development demands.

The cutting edge particle engineering technologies suitable for inhalation coupled with hands-on inhaler development knowledge allows Hovione to deliver high quality results for partners' inhalation drug development programs, ranging from developing new products for inhalation to matching innovator in-vitro deposition profiles.
