Automation systems for inhaler testing
When performing dose content uniformity testing of mDPIs or pMDIs, only a small number of doses need to be analysed; the remainder of the doses are fired to waste.
Although testing regimes vary depending on regional pharmacopeia requirements, they typically demand shots to be taken at the start and end of a device life and can include middle of device life tests. For 160 dose devices, this may result in the need to waste up to 158 shots per device. Typically processed in batches of 10, this can result in up to 1,580 waste shots from one batch of devices.
RTS provides a range of semi-automated mDPI Waste Fire and pMDI Waste FireWalkaway Systems.
The Walkaway Specialist mDPI Waste Fire System is based on a configurable platform that is easily adapted to meet the conditioning and actuation requirements of your device.
The Walkaway Specialist pMDI Waste Fire System is designed to efficiently process batches of up to 10 inhaler devices through the waste firing process.
