MBA™ main benefits
  • Combined deposition and application
  • Increased precision of application: precise track or dot, reaching hidden areas; adjusted rigidity and perfect resilience
  • Increased dosage precision with simple devices: consistent and patient-independent
  • Systems hygienic and pure, using only pharma grades
  • Drawbacks of other application systems (fingers, cotton tips, nail brushes, spatulas…) avoided, such as lack of application, precision and dosage, fibers detachment, poor hygiene, lack of sterility…
  • Various material grades adapted to expected application results
  • Systems easy to process (standard filling and handling) and to use (intuitive for patients)


MBA™ applications example
  • Skin care products, dermatology (Rx, OTC, Cosmetic), for eg: Wound treatments, Anti-fungals, Anti-warts
  • Nail and cuticle treatments
  • Foot care
  • Oral / Labial care, for eg: Herpes, Aphtas, Mucus membrane treatment
  • Dental products, for eg: gum treatment, bleaching, preparation application
  • Eye care, for eg: ointment application, infections, lashes/brow growth and treatment, eyelid drug deposition
  • Hair and scalp treatments
  • Animal health
  • Diagnosis
Healthcare Products Micro Bristle Applicator MBA
If patients can easily find deposition systems for liquid / semi-solid drugs, they face a real lack of suitable application systems for these drugs, in particular if looking for precise and hygienic dosing with pharma applicators. Therefore, we have used our expertise in injection molding technology and patented processes to provide systems that combine these two attributes to fulfill pharmaceuticals and cosmetics needs: these systems uses the technology of extremely fine and soft micro-bristle applicators (MBA™); offering a precise, gentle, hygienic and simple way to apply products on various body areas.
Key characteristics
  • MBA™: Applicator with a density of bristles > 6 bristles/mm²
  • Length of each bristle is ten times bigger related to its basis diameter
  • Standard applicators: Up to 62 bristles and 6.7 bristles per mm²
Main design characteristics
  • Various possible platforms
  • Dip-in (patient dips applicator in the formulation and then applies it)
  • Flow-through (patient presses a container with formulation, allowing product to flow between the micro-bristles)

Various usage formats

  • Single usage dip-in applicator sticks
  • Single usage flow-through applicators on mono dose tubes and Blow Fill Seal (BFS)
  • Multiple-use applicators mounted on caps, tubes, pumps
  • Industrial collaboration to partnership for containers
  • Fully customized concepts
