Thank you customers, staff and suppliers for making FIA’s 25 year anniversary such a great success. Best wishes to you all and looking forward to continue making innovative products! Kjell Fransson, Managing Director AB FIA
During the decades we have worked within the area of inhalation and nasal, a number of products have been evolved. Take the opportunity and meet us in Lund, Sweden, the 3rd–4th of October 2018. Visit our stand and see what we can do for you! Read more about MVIS 2018.
FIA has received an order from a major pharmaceutical company for two units of FIA’s state-of-the art breathing profile generator. This order adds to the existing units already installed globally, why the system will soon be introduced on several continents with an increased level of local support to come with it.

RDD 2018 is coming up in Arizona, US end of April. At the conference, MVIC will have a stand at which also AB FIA will be presented. Take the opportunity and meet MVIC’s representatives Lars Asking and Ola Nerbrink.
We are happy to announce we have received our largest order ever, two units of FIA’s well-proven concept for Automated Dosing Station (ADS) to a major pharma company. The system is configurable for automated dose uniformity testing, particle size determination and AIM concept.
We welcome 2018 and wish all our customers and colleagues a prosperous and healthy new year! Our 2017 festivities ginger bread model this season was a replica of our new rise time equipment Stig. The 2016 model, mirrored the year when we launched our new platform for customized full automation inhaler testers (see bottom of page linked). https://www.fia.se/customised-systems/pharmaceutical-medical-device-testing/inhaler-nasal/
The DDL2017 conference has now kicked off and our stand is filled with cool stuff, such as dispensers, flow controllers and our Rise time measurement instrument Stig. Come and visit ut at stand 414!
FIA’s latest instrument, known as Stig™, puts in users hands the most important measure of the time-dependent air flow start-up, namely, the rise time. An average rise-time from a series of measurements is presented on a touch-screen which also displays a flow vs. time curve and the final flow rate. Read more about the product. Stig™ also makes possible the recording of air-flow profiles so that they can be reproduced on a breathing simulator (such as F-SIG 6300) for studying nebulizers. Versatile, user-friendly, best-in-class – that is the new Stig™ from FIA.
At the MVIS conference last week we demonstrated our rise-time measurement prototype Stig which was well received. It will be soon be on the market and can be purchased with a GMP qualification protocol as an option. It has been developed together with our partner Daniel Svanberg of Raketvetenskap. Contact Kjell at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or meet us at DDL in December 2017.
Measurement of the fine particle dose (FPD) emitted from an inhaler is often the key quality control attribute for registered inhalation drug products. However, automation of the FPD measurement has proven extremely challenging if approached with full-resolution impactors. AB FIA has now changed that equation. In FIA’s automated equipment, the aerosol is separated by two size-fractionating components (see Figure, two standard fast screening impactors from MSP size-fractionate the aerosol). The recovered drug product can be either the FPD or the large particle mass or the small particle mass, key measures as a quality control test for a registered drug product. AB FIA is now working with Dr. Daryl Roberts, co-inventor of the NGI, to implement the best abbreviated impactor tools for individual customers. Contact Mr. Fransson at email@example.com or Dr. Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to discuss specific applications.
