The Syqe Inhaler™

A first-in-class pocket-sized metered-dose cannabis inhaler, poised to become the most advanced and versatile inhalation-based drug delivery platform of its kind. The Syqe Inhaler utilizes selective 100 microgram dosing precision, realtime thermal & flow controllers, lung interfacing and wireless connectivity.
This new level of precision will allow patients to reach the coveted optimum balance between symptom relief and psychoactivity, regaining their quality of life. The platform is further comprised of proprietary raw drug Structural-Modification methods, uniquely identified preloaded cartridges and a linked clinical database serving physicians, researchers and healthcare entities.

Syqe Inhaler Exo™ (For Hospital Use)

exo-smaller

A hospital version metered-dose cannabis inhaler for professional healthcare use, featuring a caregiver interface. Aimed at providing nurses and caregivers with a certified medical device for use in pain clinics, cancer centers, intensive care units and other medical institutions. The Syqe Inhaler Exo is available for hospital use in Israel.

Clinical

Clinical trials are at the forefront of our strategy, providing clinical evidence and leveraging the full potential of our technology. Our recent trial demonstrated the feasibility and the first-in-class positioning of our inhaler platform. The objective of the study was to assess the potential of the Syqe Inhaler Exo in terms of pharmacokinetics, accuracy of dosing, safety, tolerability, efficacy and ease of use. This trial suggests the potential use of the Syqe Inhaler Platform, producing a Δ⁹-THC pharmacokinetic profile with low-interindividual variation of Cmax, achieving pharmaceutical standards for inhaled drugs.
