  • Westech - Automated Plate Coater

    Westech - Automated Plate Coater

    Specifically designed for the larger laboratory, the Automated Plate Coater from Novi is capable of processing over 1000 Andersen Impactor collection plates per day with excellent consistency relieving analysts and technicians from time-consuming and inefficient manual coating, improving on both the productivity and the throughput of the more traditional approach. The Automated Plate Coater from Novi can be modified to take NGI cups.

  • Westech - Model DUSA-MDIs - Dosage Unit Sampling Apparatus

    Westech - Model DUSA-MDIs - Dosage Unit Sampling Apparatus

    The Dosage Unit Sampling App. DUSA-MDI has been designed from specifications laid down in the various pharmacopoeia for the sampling and testing of pressurised Metered Dose Inhalers. It is used to perform those tests specified by the relevant compendial standards – “Total Number of Dis-charges per Container or Inhaler”, “Dose Uni-formity” and “Dose Uniformity Over the Entire Contents” as well as those...

  • Westech - Semi-Automated Plate Coater

    Westech - Semi-Automated Plate Coater

    Designed specifically to improve efficiency, consistency and performance in inhaler testing laboratories, the semi-automated plate coater for Andersen Impactors from Novi coats plates as you wait. This plate coater can be modified to take NGI cups.

    The Dosage Unit Sampling App. DUSA-DPI has been designed from specifications laid down in the various pharmacopoeia for the sampling and testing of Dry Powder Inhalers(DPI’s) It is used to perform those tests specified by the relevant compendial standards – “Total Number of Dis-charges per Container or Inhaler”, “Dose Uni-formity” and “Dose Uniformity Over the Entire Contents” as well as those tests...

  • Westech - ClimateZone Containment Cabinets

    Westech - ClimateZone Containment Cabinets

    ClimateZone Containment Cabinets provide a safe climatically controlled temperature and humidity environment for pharmaceutical drug sample testing and are ideal for practically any application. The Pharmaceutical Industry deals with both potent and sensitive drug compounds on a daily basis which means they have a high dependency on good facility design to ensure operator protection from exposure to drug compounds. Furthermore, maintaining a...

  • Westech - Critical Flow Controller

    Westech - Critical Flow Controller

    During the use of Dry Powder Inhalers (DPI’s) the emitted and fine particle dose are affected by the strength and duration of the patient’s inspiration particulalry noticeable in the lederly and in small children. Furthermore, different inhaler designs provide various degrees of resistance to inhalation.

  • Westech - Digital Flowmeter

    Westech - Digital Flowmeter

    The Digital Flow Meter has been especially designed for use with the instrumentation employed in testing pharmaceutical inhalers. Main features of the DFM are: highly visible digital LED readout direct in litres/ minute, printer port and range 20-120 litres/minute. Full calibration certificate supplied with each unit.

  • Westech - Model IVIS - Impactor Vision Inspection System

    Westech - Model IVIS - Impactor Vision Inspection System

    The Impactor Vision Inspection System (IVIS) has been specifically designed by Westech in conjunction with Specac Ltd, Uk, to measure with a high degree of certainty the significant parameters relating to the size and shape of the jets on each of the stages of Westech 8-stage Non-Viable Impactors or Andersen/Andersen-type impactors. It remains the only instrument designed solely for this application and has been optimised particularly for these...

  • Westech - 8 Stage Impactor for Testing of DPIs

    Westech - 8 Stage Impactor for Testing of DPIs

    The aerodynamic particle size distribution of the drug leaving an inhaler device can define the manner in which an aerosol deposits in the respiratory tract during inhalation. This characteristic of the aerosol is often used in judging inhaler performance and is particularly relevant in the development of inhalation formulations during research, production, quality assurance and equivalency testing. The results of characterisations using cascade...
