RTS Life Science has announced it will exhibit at the Drug Delivery to the Lungs (DDL) conference, to be held Edinburgh International Conference Centre, 9-11 December 2009.

RTS staff will be available to discuss dry powder and pressurised metered dose inhaler testing needs.

RTS Life Science provides a range of automated inhaler-testing solutions for development and quality-control settings.

The RTS mDPI (multi-dose dry powder inhaler) testing and automation systems feature integrated vacuum and drug-filtration systems, automated flow control, emitted dose detection and real-time monitoring of inhalation and actuation parameters via RTS Touchsprint, an intuitive method-driven control system.

A variety of standardised designs can easily be adapted to meet the actuation requirements of any dry-powder device.

Also available are pMDI (pressurised metered dose inhaler) testing and automation systems.

These feature integrated filtration and drug capture, rotary and linear shaking capability, ex-valve and ex-actuator firing, automated control and monitoring of shake and fire parameters and the intuitive RTS Touchsprint user interface.

Both mDPI and pMDI systems are modular in design and can accommodate multiple devices, allowing for extended periods of unattended operation.

The ADD Process Master automation is suitable for fully automated, through-life dose-content uniformity testing.

The Process Master systems feature integrated HPLC analysis of emitted dose and deliver a lights-out solution for ‘inhaler in, data out’ through-life device testing.

A recent addition to the RTS range is a single-device test firing system that enables reproducible conditioning, actuation, waste fire cycling and introduction of inhalers to a variety of dose uniformity and particle-size analysis equipment, including dose-collection tubes, cascade impactors (NGI and ACI), impingers, particle-size analysers and waste-drug collection systems.

The systems feature a novel inhaler adapter system, the RTS Touchsprint user interface, and can be easily incorporated into any inhalation laboratory environment and workflow.
