Testing and support in liquid aerosol delivery  


In our state-of-the-art aerosol science laboratory, our scientists provide guidance for the ideal testing needed for clinical trials, regulatory submissions and approvals. Our laboratory capabilities include:

Staff icon

Expert, experienced staff  

Our staff of 10 scientists brings an average of 12 years experience in inhalation science, including aerosol testing, analytical, microbiology and regulatory requirements for device and drug submissions.

Facilities icon

Cutting-edge facilities  

Our facilities are designed for testing, analytics and microbiology, and precisely controlled for temperature and humidity. We offer a comprehensive range of testing equipment, methods and measurements.

Quality icon

Full standards compliance  

We operate in full compliance to cGLP standards, offering aerosol testing performed to specific device or pharmaceutical regulations, and against validated SOPs/Methods.

A proven process  

Our feasibility testing process includes key steps to validate your drug and prepare it for regulatory submission. Our Material Transfer Agreements include strict controls to ensure your compound is handled with confidentiality, protecting your IP while in our control.

Stage 1  

Matching device and drug
We explore and test the suitability of our devices to your drug, to determine which is the appropriate device to meet critical clinical parameters, including particle size, delivery time, dose and drug residual.

Stage 2  

Assessing performance
We assess the performance of the device in simulated breathing conditions to determine the effectiveness of the device in delivering your drug to a patient, including integrity after delivery, particle size, delivered dose and delivery time.

Stage 3  

Preparing for submission
We generate the necessary data required for submission, by conducting quality assurance testing on the device, your drug and our drug delivery test results in stages 1 and 2.

Setting you up for success

Our aerosol testing laboratory capabilities can benefit your drug product by:


  • Helping you to find the right device for your drug to maximize efficacy and speed to market
  • Pre-testing your new chemical entities before launching costly clinical trials
  • Identifying the ideal approach for both testing and data capture for successful regulatory submission
  • Delivering trial results that are precise and reproducible
  • Delivering data at GLP standards, with analytical and technical documentation that support for regulatory submissions

Clinically proven from hospital to home  

Aerogen Logo
Our advanced aerosol delivery products are the only home-use devices featuring Aerogen Vibronic® meshes*, the same unique palladium vibrating mesh technology used in hospital ventilators worldwide to deliver aerosolized medications. The central aperture plate is just 5mm in diameter and is perforated with 1000 precision formed holes, that vibrate at 128,000 times per second, to produce the optimum particle size for deep lung penetration.
