Texture Analysis in action: Metered Dose Inhaler test



Metered Dose Inhaler test using the TA.XTplus Texture AnalyserThe METERED DOSE INHALER or MDI (A/IS) delivers a precise, reproducible dose of drug accurately to the deep lung. 

It is also well accepted by patients who depend on MDI’s in their treatment and therefore it is essential to constantly improve this technology. Patients need to rely on their inhaler to provide them with the required medication which is often at a crucial time when physical strength may be very low.

The metering valve, whose performance is assessed with this test, is a critical component of a finished metered-dose inhaler.
