About us

Corolabs develops unique aerosol generation technologies for soft-mist-inhalers coupled with specific medications for pulmonary drug delivery. Our unique technologies are geared towards providing simple, robust, user-friendly and disposable devices that generate soft-mist aerosol with low droplet size (below 1 microns) and high fine particle fraction (FPF).

Corolabs' technology is based on a scientific discovery in the fields of fluid dynamics and the interaction of airflows with thin liquid film
