Copley Scientific previews 3rd generation TPK Critical Flow Controller at upcoming RDD Europe 2017

28 March 2017; Nottingham, UK: Copley Scientific, the world’s leading manufacturer of inhaler test equipment, will preview its new Critical Flow Controller – the TPK™ 2100 – for the testing of dry powder inhalers (DPIs) at Respiratory Drug Delivery (RDD) Europe 2017 from 25th-28th April in Antibes, France. The highly automated TPK™ 2100 (patent pending) incorporates a range of features that speed up testing, improve reproducibility, and enhance data output and recording; all important requirements for cost-efficient measurement in a highly regulated environment.

Delivered dose and aerodynamic particle size distribution (APSD) are critical quality attributes for DPIs as they indicate the amount of drug that will be received by a patient and also, where it is most likely to deposit in the lung. Relevant testing methods are specified in both the US and European Pharmacopeias but are widely recognised as being relatively complex from the perspective of test set-up and implementation. Built on Copley’s heritage of TPK™ models – which are established international standards in the field of DPI testing equipment – the new TPK™ 2100 sets a new benchmark for the set-up, control and documentation of all the parameters associated with the measurement both of delivered dose and APSD.

Mark Copley, Sales Director at Copley Scientific comments “With around 600 scientists congregating in Antibes on 25th April, I expect three days of stimulating discussion on the hot topics surrounding inhaled drug delivery. RDD is a distinguished conference, and provides the ideal forum to preview our latest product – the TPK™ 2100 – which is ideally suited to the needs of analytical scientists and will be officially launched later this year. Innovative designs with a high degree of automation are an important focus for us as we work to reduce the potential impact of user variability, thereby enhancing reproducibility and data integrity. Such designs, as exemplified by the new TPK™ 2100, also enhance analytical productivity – a crucial gain in today’s busy R&D and QC labs.”

Copley Scientific is the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of inhaler test equipment and continuously innovates new products to meet the evolving needs of the inhalation community. Experts from the company will be on hand throughout RDD Europe 2017 to answer questions on any aspect of inhaled product testing.
