Designed for maximum efficiency in Dry Powder Inhalation delivery

The demand for inhalable drugs that require high drug loads and the delivery of cohesive and sensitive materials has increased, making it necessary to develop more efficient delivery solutions. To address these challenges, the Sunriser® incorporates a unique flow path through the device, which combined with high-performance capsule dynamics, drives maximum efficiency in the dispersion and deagglomeration of inhalable dry powder formulations. Sunriser’s patented innovative engine delivers >50% to the lung consistently across flow rates and across formulation types.

Sunriser® is designed to overcome patient usability challenges promoting adherence and compliance with easy capsule loading, audio feedback and a transparent capsule chamber for visual checking that the complete dose has been inhaled from the capsule. It provides classical piercing with two needles and operates with size 3 capsules. Connectivity and digital features can be integrated.

In addition to Sunriser® device supply, Hovione can provide all formulation development services and capsule filling for targeted lung and systemic indications. Hovione can conduct fully integrated device and formulation development and optimization of generic and innovator drug products, from proof-of-concept to clinical manufacturing and commercial drug product supply.
