Benchtop Environmental Chamber

Both Ph. Eur. and USP specifically reference the control of environmental conditions in cases where temperature and/or humidity limits are stated on the product label and/or it is specified in the relevant monograph. However, it is also good practice to implement environmental controls across all DDU and APSD applications to reduce variability and improve the accuracy, sensitivity and reproducibility of data. We offer a range of cost-effective tools designed to help mitigate the impact of localised environmental conditions on OINDP test data integrity.

EnviroMate™ – Benchtop Environmental Chamber

Accommodating all types of dose uniformity sampling apparatus and cascade impactor, EnviroMate™ is a cost-effective, compact, benchtop environmental chamber solution for analysts struggling to achieve stable environmental conditions for delivered dose uniformity (DDU) and aerodynamic particle size distribution (APSD) testing. Maintaining uniform temperature and humidity distribution throughout the chamber, whilst the built-in anti-static system minimises the effects of electrostatic charge, EnviroMate provides analysts with consistent environmental control in the immediate test area, enhancing OINDP test data accuracy and repeatability.

  • Designed specifically for OINDP testing

  • Sensitive temperature and relative humidity sensors ensure accurate performance

  • Access ports and quick connectors enable interfacing with externally located ancillaries

  • No routine maintenance required

White paper: Establishing a robust environment for inhaler testing

In this white paper, we examine how the poor control of temperature, relative humidity and electrostatics can influence inhaler testing. Separately, we assess their impact on the performance of cascade impactors, concluding with a discussion about solutions, such as EnviroMate™, that can help.
