URSATEC – The inventor of dosage systems for preservative-free applications

We invented dosage systems for the application of preservative-free medical and cosmetic formulations. Our steadily growing company has sold almost 2 billion units worldwide since it was founded in 1993. We are proud to have founded a rethinking in the market for nasal sprays and set preservative-free formulations as the new standard in Europe.

“WHEN PRESERVATIVE FREE MATTERS®”. This is more than just a slogan for us. It defines the focus of our actions and the commitment we bring to our product and service portfolio.

Quality awareness, creativity and an international network are the foundations of this development. Our young, dynamic and experienced team responds quickly and solution-oriented to the needs and wishes of our customers.

An innovative product stands at the beginning of our company history.
In 1993, we developed our first dosage system for preservative-free formulations and without propellant gas. Creativity coupled with the highest quality has been the guiding principle of our entrepreneurial activities to this day. This is what customers in our home country and abroad appreciate and they have made us what we are today: a successful, market-leading and dynamic company with the goal of supporting the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries in the development of preservative-free products.

Milestones of the URSATEC system development

1994 | COMOD®-System

The development of the innovative COMOD®-system, provided the prerequisite to keep liquid dosage forms germ-free and thus safe and tolerable in the long-term use without the addition of preservatives. The COMOD® system is used exclusively by our partner URSAPHARM.

1995 | Finished Products

We offer development of finished products for pharmaceutical, medical and cosmetic applications including sterile contract filling and delivery.


1998 | 3K®-System

The development of our 3K®-system has proven successful in the application of preservative-free pharmaceuticals and medical devices for nasal use.


2008 | COMFORT®-System

Our COMFORT®-system is an advancement of the COMOD®-system and enables a broad application, especially in dermatology. The "bag-in-bottle" technology combined with the hermetic shielding from the surrounding air provides additional protection, especially for sensitive ingredients and solutions.


2019 | SoftBreezer®

With the development of our SoftBreezer®, we have created a novel system for the inhalation of preservative-free aqueous solutions. The convenient inhaler fits in virtually any handbag or pocket and is characterized by particularly fine nebulization and very short application times.
