    Ictus – The Automated Andersen

Transform your inhaler testing by completely automating it

Ictus is an automated particle size (using the Andersen Cascade Impactor) and Dose Content Uniformity (DCU) system.

The Ictus machine is a sophisticated system developed by our experts to make your testing process as simple and repeatable as possible. In fact we are the only company, as far as we know, to have systems in current commercial use that can do this.

Ictus enables you to simply load up to thirty inhalers, press start, and come back later to find a complete set of samples ready to be taken to the HPLC for analysis.

Automation on this scale is a significant undertaking for a company and so it only makes sense when large scales are involved. However, the benefits can be significant:

  • Radically reduce manpower cost and free staff to conduct higher-value, non-repetitive work.
  • Decouple any variation in results from variation in test method or technique and get to the root cause in a fraction of the time.
  • Produce consistent results for years to come independent of changes in staff or techniques.
  • Maintain a continuous high level of throughput 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Transform how your inhalers are approved for release.
