Nebology.com now offers nebulizer supply replacement kits so you can keep your system working properly, get a year's worth of supplies at once, and even receive a 10 percent discount.
After you answer a few quick questions about your nebulizer, we'll pick the right parts and ship them to you. Keep reading to learn about compressors and nebulizer cups so you can feel more certain about which nebulizer you use.
The PARI Vios and PARI Vios PRO
The PARI Vios Nebulizer Compressor System is the most common aerosol therapy system we sell (it's also often sold at local Walgreens), and it's a tabletop model. Versions for adults have green or medium blue exteriors, while the pediatric model can be either yellow or green.
Alternatively, the PARI Vios PRO Nebulizer Compressor System has a navy blue body and was only released in January 2014. Because it is a more robust version of the original Vios compressor, this model requires a special type of tubing and filter to deliver treatments correctly. Although some companies send standard tubing for this model, we'll always provide the stronger tubing to ensure optimal performance.
The supplies for the PARI Vios PRO are slightly more expensive, but after you indicate that's the device you own by using the drop-down menu on the Supply Replacement Kit page, you'll see the price update automatically.
If your nebulizer is portable, you need parts for the PARI Trek or PARI Trek S (or the European version - the PARI Boy Mobile S). Depending on the version you initially purchased, your compressor may or may not have an attached battery pack. You can recognize a portable model by sight because it has a body that's mostly navy blue, with a bit of yellow at one end.
The PARI Trek S is typically packaged with the PARI LC Sprint Nebulizer Cup, so you can easily know which version nebulizer cup you use. The Trek S uses standard Wing Tip Tubing and the same replacement filters as the Vios model above - if you purchase parts for your Vios, they can also be used for your Trek S!
The PARI Ultra II and the ProNeb Ultra: Different Models That Look Similar
People often confuse the PARI Ultra II with an older nebulizer called the PARI ProNeb Ultra, because they're both grey. Fortunately, the compressor models have their respective names on the exterior, so that's the easiest way to tell which one you have.
You can see the filter for the PARI ProNeb Ultra by looking at the front of the compressor. That model also has a handle on its top. In contrast, the filter for the PARI Ultra II cannot be seen without removing the compressor's round, indented cap.
The PARI ProNeb
The older PARI ProNeb Compressor has a white, rectangular body. It's the oldest nebulizer in our product family, but, like newer PARI models, has the compressor name printed on the body. After removing the filter, you'll notice it has a black cage and pinkish filter material.
Learn Which Nebulizer Cup You Use
Similar to PARI compressors, nebulizer cups are identifiable by color and usually have a product name printed on the cup. The PARI LC Plus Nebulizer Cup is the most common model our customers purchase, and it has a white/clear body. The cup has a rectangular handle and a blue circle on the top.
On the other hand, the PARI LC Sprint Nebulizer Cup is half blue, and half white/clear. A rounded handle extends from the back. Like the cup that fits the PARI LC Plus, this accessory has the product name printed on the side.
Finally, the LC Star Nebulizer Cup is red and white. It's the least commonly purchased cup in our inventory.

Many of our customers have had their nebulizer systems for years but have never been instructed about how to care for their devices. Nebulizer systems require a bit of maintenance to ensure the most effective treatments for you.
Did you know that PARI nebulizer cups can be boiled or washed in the dishwasher? Or that vinegar and water is a safe and effective way to disinfect your nebulizer supplies? Keeping your nebulizer equipment clean is one important key to a healthy respiratory system. Germs that deposit on the equipment during an illness should be thoroughly disinfected so they don't become a bigger problem. Read more on our blog about cleaning your supplies...
Did you know that PARI filters often start to turn gray when they need to be replaced? Or that your filter has the important job of removing pollen, dust and debris from the air that's about to go into your lungs? So many customers get their nebulizer systems with very few instructions or education about taking care of each piece and part. While some parts can be cleaned, others just need to be replaced every so often. Read our blog to learn when to replace your nebulizer supplies...

The nebulizer cup is an essential part of an aerosol therapy system because it turns your liquid medication into a mist that targets the lungs. The PARI nebulizer cups we carry are activated by your breath. They deliver more medication when you inhale, and waste a smaller amount as you breathe out.
When browsing our products, customers commonly ask for guidance about which nebulizer cup would best suit their needs. We carry three main designs - the LC Plus, LC Sprint and LC Star. All of these nebulizer cups are reusable and dishwasher-safe. Keep reading to find out some of the differences between them and to help you decide which nebulizer cup is right for your treatment.
The PARI LC Plus
The PARI LC Plus Nebulizer works with all standard compressor-type nebulizers and is probably the most commonly purchased and prescribed medicine cup we carry. It’s considered the gold standard in the aerosol therapy industry because it’s been trusted in a large number of pharmaceutical clinical trials that were performed to test the efficacy of inhaled medications.
Because it dispenses medicine in a small particle size, the nebulizer cup ensures the maximum possible amount reaches the lungs. Additionally, only the LC Plus is approved to administer nebulized tobramycin for Cystic Fibrosis patients.
The PARI LC Star
This heavy-duty option is designed for users who need medication within the deepest parts of their lungs. It’s also appropriate for individuals who have smaller airways due to age, or the advanced progression of a disease.
Definitely the least commonly purchased medicine cup we carry, the PARI LC Star is still often prescribed or recommended for patients with CF or advanced COPD.
The PARI LC Sprint
Choose the PARI LC Sprint to enjoy the most efficient and speedy medication delivery available. It’s the newest addition to the PARI brand and is able to deliver a uniform particle size, allowing the medication to quickly get to the lungs without going to waste. Typically treatment times with the LC Sprint are 1-2 minutes less than with other nebulizer cups. This is a great medicine cup for children and adults with mild asthma.
Similarities Between All PARI Cups
No matter which one of the nebulizer cups you choose, it’ll come with a handy Timestrip indicator that reminds you to switch to a new cup every six months and a brand PARI tubing. Unlike many nebulizer cups, the options made by PARI are dishwasher-safe, offering you an easy way to clean them thoroughly.
The information above, combined with insight from your healthcare provider, should help you feel more informed about shopping for aerosol therapy accessories at Nebology.com.
Caring for nebulizer supplies properly is necessary for treatment effectiveness, and it will help you get the maximum lifespan from your aerosol therapy system. Keep reading to learn some helpful guidance about when to replace certain parts.
Compressor systems like the PARI Vios LC Plus and PARI Vios LC Sprint come with a pair of nebulizer cups, and each is designed for six months of use. They also include the handy Timestrip feature that offers a visual indicator to let you know when it’s time to switch to a new cup.
