Copley launches a new webinar series on inhaler testing

20 April 2020; Nottingham, UK: Copley Scientific will shortly begin the company’s inaugural series of technical webinars, offering valuable, easy to understand overviews on key aspects of inhaler testing. Copley is the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of inhaler test equipment and exemplary training is a hallmark of the company’s customer-centric approach. Each ‘Quick guide to…’ webinar will focus on the specific device type to be tested – metered dose inhalers (MDIs), dry powder inhalers (DPIs) or nebulisers – or a critical area of interest such as regulatory updates and achieving better in vitro-in vivo correlations (IVIVCs). The new series will run over the coming quarter, building to an important resource for both novice and experienced researchers. Register here to attend the first webinar, on MDIs, at 10:00 AM (BST) on April 29th, which will be delivered by Anna Sipitanou, Business Development Manager and one of Copley’s most knowledgeable trainers.

“I’m looking forward to delivering the first in this webinar series,” said Anna Sipitanou, “since I know we’ll be able to share a lot of information that customers will find helpful. The aim is to provide an up-to-date overview in each area. Those new to inhaler testing can use this as an introduction, while those with more experience can brush up on the basics and learn about new developments. Once complete the full series will usefully complement the comprehensive, in-house and tailored training we provide to directly meet specific customer requirements.”

The webinars will draw on Copley’s extensive knowledge of the regulatory requirements for both delivered dose uniformity testing and aerodynamic particle size distribution measurement and practical experience of helping laboratory analysts implement effective testing strategies.

“Topics on the agenda for the initial MDI webinar include regulatory in vitro testing requirements, common issues encountered in testing and troubleshooting,” said Anna Sipitanou. “All the webinars will be around an hour long and conclude with time for questions. There’s no charge to attend so I’m hoping plenty of people will take the opportunity to advance their learning and understanding.”
