    Vertus – Shake and Fire for pMDIs

Take out the labour and improve the results

Vertus is a ready-made flexible shake, fire and flow control for individual pMDI testing with ACI, NGI, DUSA, waste shot collectors and other devices.

Control all your test parameters

By using Vertus, you can precisely control the test technique, including shaking profile, angle of fire, pauses between shaking and firing, resting position of inhaler, airflow control and leak test validation.

Conduct all your tests on one device

Vertus is compatible with most inhalers and all standard dose collection devices (including NGI, ACI, DUSA and waste shot collectors).

Not only can you rely on Vertus to be compatible with the next test method you have to implement, but you can be consistent in your methodology and make direct comparisons between the devices.

Replicate test methods across different sites

If you need to do this work on more than one site, you can use Vertus to ensure that test methods are replicated precisely.

Reduce the hassle and increase productivity

Vertus will simplify and automate the awkward and time-consuming tasks involved in testing an inhaler

  • Airflow control is automatic, fast and doesn’t require disconnection of any parts or human intervention.
  • Leak test is automatic and doesn’t require disconnection of any parts. As well as saving time, leaks cannot be introduced between conducting the leak test and performing the inhaler test.
  • When a Vertus run is underway, the analyst is free to go and do other work.
  • For every Vertus run, the details of the run are recorded so any unexpected results can be investigated much more easily and quickly.
  • Using Vertus is easier than doing this work by hand, so staff training is simpler and less qualified staff can do this work.
  • Long tests can be run without human intervention. (For example, one of our customers uses Vertus to simulate an inhaler that is left on the bedside table overnight.)
