Semi-Automating Inhaler Testing – A Good Idea, but Where to Start?
Cascade impaction is a vital technique in the development and manufacture of orally inhaled and nasal drug products (OINDPs), used to measure aerodynamic particle size distribution (APSD), a critical quality attribute. However, it is a complex analysis that remains predominantly manual in most laboratories. This has significant implications for variability and productivity. Copley Scientific, the global leader in inhaler testing equipment, offers a range of automated solutions that can be deployed to help.
