The new DUSA Shaker™ DTS 100i from Copley: For faster, safer, more repeatable inhaler testing

The DUSA Shaker™ DTS 100i is a new semi-automation solution from Copley Scientific, the global leader in inhaler and nasal drug product testing equipment, that supports quicker, more efficient, regulatory and compendial delivered dose uniformity (DDU) testing. A fully updated version of the original Copley DUSA Shaker, it provides full, fast, repeatable rinsing for Dose Uniformity Sampling Apparatus (DUSA) for metered dose inhalers (MDIs) and dry powder inhalers (DPIs). Benefiting from Copley’s unrivalled understanding of inhaler testing, the robustly engineered DTS 100i accelerates timelines, increases repeatability and accuracy, and releases analysts for higher value work.

DDU testing confirms the consistency of dose delivery across the lifetime of an individual inhaler and across each batch of product. A key step is rinsing the DUSA to recover a delivered dose. This process can be carried out manually, but an automated approach is better from the perspective of ensuring full recovery, health and safety, and efficiency.

The DTS 100i is a modular solution that will slot easily into any existing set-up or workflow and a perfect low-cost, introduction to the benefits of semi-automation. The original DUSA Shaker has been used in busy inhaler testing labs across the world for over a decade; the comprehensively re-engineered and updated DTS 100i offers:

  • Up to 10 times quicker drug recovery, compared with manual practice
  • An intuitive touchscreen interface for easy operation
  • An optimised lateral shaking and/or rotating motion for repeatable, complete rinsing
  • The flexibility to handle full or partial loads
  • Adjustable lateral shaking speed in the range 20 – 200 rpm
  • Extensive data reporting options
