Delivered Dose Uniformity Testing the FIA Way

The founders of AB FIA have worked with automation of the delivered dose uniformity (DDU) testing of inhalers for almost 30 years. No single system can fit every customer; factors such as flexibility, regulatory expectations and costs must be considered.

FIA’s systems are customized for every project but are built on well-established modules that have been implemented in bench-top, semi-automated and fully automated systems. The flexixble design allows the system to be designed for various devices, as exemplified in Figure 1A and 1B.
