The single-use dry powder inhaler. [Image courtesy of 1nhaler]1nhaler announced today that it raised $2.5 million (£2 million) to develop a sustainable single-use dry powder inhaler.

The Scotland-based drug delivery device developer cited limited inhalable medicine development due to a number of reasons. Those include accessibility, cost, performance and environmental impact. Its own development could enable the delivery of several dry powder drugs in a sustainable, low-cost delivery device.

Rather than use expensive, bulky plastic, 1nhaler uses cardboard to create an inhaler with the same dimensions as a credit card. The discreet platform features a breathable membrane capable of tailoring to deliver individual drugs to patients.
