DEVICE AND PACKAGE TESTING

We provide the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and agriculture sectors with robust product testing solutions. We can perform both standard and non-standard tests for a range of products and develop custom solutions for our clients. Many products have bespoke testing requirements and we can develop validated methodology and specialist testing rigs. Standard testing services include:

  • package robustness
  • orientation studies
  • content uniformity & dose reproducibility
  • aerosol analysis
  • API dissolution
  • stability & accelerated stability studies
  • particle size analysis
  • moisture interaction & content
  • thermal stability
  • foreign particle analysis
  • method development & validation

We have state of the art testing facilities at our Glebe headquarters. With a comprehensive suit of facilities we can provide you with critical product information rapidly.

AEROSOL ANALYSIS

We provide analytical services specifically tailored to aerosol generating products. We can characterise the aerosol properties of sprays and aerosols produced from pump dispensers, pressurised canisters, pressurised metered dose inhalers, nebulisers and dry powder devices. We have a number of testing methodologies and can provide custom solutions. Standard testing services include:

  • high speed Spraytec laser diffraction (Spraytec)
  • delivered dose uniformity
  • aerodynamic size distributions
  • USP/EUPh testing methodology
  • anderson cascade impactor (ACI) studies
  • next generation impactor (NG)) studies
  • multi-stage liquid impinger (MSLI) studies
  • full analytical services (HPLC & HPLC-MS)
  • in vitro bio-equivelence studies
  • particle size statistics and respiratory fraction analysis
  • MMAD, GSD, %<10 ┬Ám, FPD, FPF etc

Using our state-of-the-art aerosol testing facilities, we can provide you with the information you need for development or registration of your aerosol product.

TOXICITY

EPITHELIAL CELL STUDIES

Using specific respiratory and nasal cell types, we are able to provide comprehensive API, excipient & formulation pre-clinical toxicity and cell response studies. This is essential at the early stages of product R&D to identify downstream clinical issues. 

TRANSPORT

REAL SYSTEMS

We have a number of bespoke models for evaluating aerosol deposition, transport and pharmacokinetics. We utilise both cell and non-cell based models, incorporated into conventional pharmacopeia apparatuses, to assess the deposition, transport and dissolution.

EFFECT

PHARMACOLOGY

We have a number of cell culture models for studying the interaction of your API or formulation at a cellular and molecular level. These include, mucus & cilia function models, inflammatory response, metabolic processes, cell migration and bacteriological assays.
