About eFlow® Technology and PARI Pharma
EP-101 is delivered by an investigational eFlow® Nebulizer System developed by PARI Pharma and optimized specifically for EP-101. The optimized, investigational eFlow Nebulizer System uses eFlow Technology to enable highly efficient aerosolization of medication including liquid formulations via a vibrating, perforated membrane that includes thousands of laser drilled holes. Compared to other nebulization technologies, eFlow Technology produces aerosols with a very high density of active drug, a precisely defined droplet size, and a high proportion of respirable droplets delivered in the shortest possible period of time. eFlow® Technology is not an ultrasonic nebulizer technology, and it is not a general purpose electronic aerosol generator nebulizer technology. Combined with its quiet mode of operation, small size, light weight, and battery use, eFlow Technology reduces the burden of taking daily, inhaled treatments. PARI Pharma focuses on the development of aerosol delivery devices and comprehensive inhalation drug development to advance aerosol therapies where drug and device can be optimized together.
