The Inhaler and Nebulizer Accessory will:

  • Allow the dispersion of fine drug particles and any large agglomerates or excipients to be understood by making measurements over a wide size range.
  • Facilitate device and formulation screening studies to be implemented, by enabling hundreds of measurements to be made in a day.
  • Monitor the dynamic processes of particle entrainment and dispersion which occur during device actuation, by measuring particle size distributions at a rate of up to 10,000 measurements a second.
  • Enable particle size measurements to be made at any flow rate, so that particle dispersion can be followed using patient-like breathing profiles.
  • Provide a means of making measurements in-line with other techniques, allowing results to be compared with traditional inhaler characterization methods.
