Platform Technology

Proprietary Nasal Drug Delivery System

SNBL has developed a proprietary nasal drug delivery technology, μco™ System, consisting of a powder carrier technology (μco™ Carrier) designed for increased drug absorption through its muco-adhesive properties and a delivery device technology designed for simple use, and complete and consistent delivery of intranasal powder formulations.
Our technology can be applied to a wide range of drugs, including small molecules, peptides, and biologics. It can be utilized for improved systemic drug absorption, enhanced muco-immunity for a vaccine, or for enabling drug delivery to the brain through the olfactory area.

Platform Technology

The μco™ System is a nasal drug delivery platform comprised of powder carrier technology and delivery device technology.
