DTF makes R&D part of its sustainability approach

Driven by a constant desire to improve our product ranges, we make research and development part of our sustainability approach.

Two research and development centres file new patents every year in our sphere of competence.

  • Multidisciplinary team (electronics, plastics, mechanics): 3 people focused on incremental innovations and product ranges.

R&D in Tours:

  • Aerodrug, a unit dedicated to aerosoltherapy, consists of one researcher and amenities belonging to the Inserm U1100 Unit and the Faculty of Medicine (Tours University). This makes it one of the main European research units in this field.
