WaferiX™ is a multiple drug carrier platform technology that allows pharmacologically active compounds, such as ketamine and sildenafil, to be administered sublingually (i.e. placed under the tongue) and delivered safely, conveniently and rapidly into the blood stream.

Produced via the Group’s proprietary freeze-drying technique, the porous and amorphous WaferiX™ matrix holding the active molecules is designed to collapse quickly within the sublingual space.
