Inhalation Product Analysis And Testing

Specialist analytical testing for orally inhaled and nasal drug products (OINDPs) including particle sizing and aerodynamic particle size distribution

During the development of orally and nasal inhaled (OINDP) drug products, it is important to fully understand the drug product characteristics and the drug device operation. Specialist testing capabilities and techniques such as laser particle sizing and aerodynamic particle size distribution (APSD) by impaction are necessary. Our OINDP experts also provide testing for spray pattern/plume geometry and delivered dose assessment. 

Bringing quality and safety to life, we offer Total Quality Assurance expertise to help you to meet and exceed quality, safety and regulatory standards. We provide high quality Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) compliant analytical services to the pharmaceutical, biotech and healthcare industries for inhalation and aerosol-based products as part of our comprehensive range of  inhalation drug product development services
