Latest Robotic Technology for Automated Inhaler Tester

Jun 08 2009

Leading automation developer, Astech Projects, has announced the launch of its new fully automated Xelair® Series 5 system for automated inhaler testing. This system incorporates all existing features of the Xelair 1 and 3 series’ such as reduced variability, increased productivity and cost reduction. Additionally, the Xelair Series 5 includes the Device Handling and Storage (DHS) module with optional waste fire, which offers fully automated storage, handling and transfer of all devices. Therefore, the need for manual inhaler firing is eliminated, enabling the user to leave the system to operate unattended for up to 24 hours.

Utilising the latest robotic manipulator technology for increased throughput, robustness and flexibility, the Xelair Series 5 system offers an increased capacity for emitted dose collection. Furthermore, the ability to test up to 200 inhalers per day maximises testing in the minimal amount of time. This premium technology provides a fully automated solution for testing Dose Content Uniformity of the Emitted Dose, with each system and module designed to allow easy integration with each unique product.

Astech Projects’ Sales and Marketing Director, Anthony Moran, commented: “There is a real demand for increased throughput and consistent data within the pharmaceutical industry, a need which can be met with the Xelair systems. These products facilitate repeatable and reliable data, catering for changing client needs by allowing seamless migration between products in the Xelair range”.
