Products and services

Our patented palladium vibrating mesh technology lies at the heart of our category leading aerosol drug delivery systems, and has transformed the treatment of respiratory patients throughout the world. This technology turns liquid medication into a fine particle mist, gently and effectively delivering drugs to the lungs of patients. Innovative products such as Aerogen Ultra and Aerogen Solo, which were developed using this technology, offer improved treatment for patients. These products work for the benefit of patients by delivering 6% greater lung deposition when compared to jet nebulisers. This versatile technology can be used throughout the hospital setting including ICU, HDU, ED, Wards, Neonate and Paediatric departments. In achieving these technological breakthroughs Aerogen has hit many landmark milestones along the way, including developing the world’s first silent nebuliser (Aerogen Solo).

Value proposition

Offering superior clinical performance and improving treatment of respiratory patients, is at the forefront of Aerogen’s philosophy. This commitment has led to over four million patients, in over 75 countries benefiting from these innovative technologies by receiving more effective and efficient treatment. The superior performance of our Aerosol Drug Delivery systems helps reduce the number of admissions of patients at ED departments due to the effective technology delivering 6 times the medication to patient’s lungs than traditional jet nebulizers, meaning patients receive more than twice the medication in half the time, leading to quicker recovery times and lower admission rates. All of this combined means patients’ length of stay in hospital and related costs are significantly reduced.
