Lina is the first Respiratory Care Research and Manufacturing facility in Sri Lanka producing a line of Respiratory Care Products together with an Inhaler Device. This facility is the brain child of research worker Dr. Anil Goonatillaka. His interest in Respiratory Disease and in his effort to find a more efficient treatment method, made him research on to finding a line of products which could give quick relief to asthmatic patients. The factory was acquired by Akbar Pharmaceuticals (Pvt) Ltd in the year 2010 and commercial production commenced on 1st of April, 2011 with the auspices of the Hon'ble Minister of Health, Maithripala Sirisena. 

The factory has a qualified, dedicated and experienced staff manufacturing a line of Respiratory Care Products. The quality control is of utmost importance and Lina is proud to have a ‘Cascading Impactor’ machine (Artificial lung) with which each manufactured device is tested for its efficacy. The factory is WHO GMP certified. With the demand for capacity Lina purchased an Italian Capsule filling machine from IMA- an Italian company, to enhance the capacity as was required to honour government tenders. 

The Special Compound Mix
Dr. Anil Goonatillaka researched as to how the chemical ingredience could be mixed to give the patient more effective relief once the chemical compound reaches the lower lungs. He used a 3D Mixer with his formula to achieve this. For this special formula he won the Presidential Award in the year 2010. 

The Device
Dr. Anil researched into a Dry Powder inhaler Device which is different from what is available in the market that could give more benefits to the patient. He got the assistance of the Engineers at the Moratuwa University who designed an Inhaler Device using sophisticated software to come up with Lina Inhaler Device the ‘Ventohaler’. For its efficacy, and innovative mechanism which gives benefits for the patients, the Ventohaler won the Presidential Award in the year 2001.
