PharmaDur™  is a polymer-based technology that provides benefits over conventional forms of transdermal drug delivery. Also used for transmucosal and ophthalmic applications, it is a topical application that yields an invisible and imperceptible hydrogel film that creates a monolithic reservoir from which drug substances are released at a controlled rate for transdermal transport. Unlike conventional gels and creams, it functions like a patch to provide controlled released delivery of APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients).

A new device and method of intranasal drug delivery can be individually pouched like a wet wipe for easy storage in clothing pockets. It can be placed in the nose with one hand in less than ten seconds, and can be left in the nose for hours at a time or overnight. When placed in the nose, the device is invisible to others, making it practical for use in any public setting. Go here for more info .
