Spray characterisation testing

Inhalation products are extremely complex to develop and manufacture, and it is important to understand potential interactions between the formulation and the delivery device throughout the development stages.

SprayVIEW® measurement systems are not only valuable tools to guide drug product development but can also be used to support quality control for finished drug products.

At Recipharm, we have the right expertise and specialised equipment to support the development of quality analytical techniques. This is particularly true for the development of inhaled products, including nasal and oral sprays, and pressurised metered-dose inhalers (pMDIs).

Spray pattern and plume geometry are critical attributes when characterising nasal and oral sprays and pMDI aerosols. The acquisition of real-time images of aerosols or sprays emitted from a device, using a high-speed camera, enables subsequent analysis of the spray pattern and plume geometry, which represents the shape of the aerosol or spray.

SprayVIEW® measurement systems are not only valuable tools to guide drug product development but can also be used to support quality control for container closure components and finished drug products.

In an article with On Drug Delivery, our vice president inhalation product development and GM, Ann Flodin, explores Recipharm’s SprayVIEW® measurement and automated actuation stations for the development and quality control of container closures and finished products.
