Manual PMDI wasting is a tedious time consuming task that can result in repetitive stress injuries over time. Coupled with this risk, improper manual shaking and shake-to-fire intervals in testing can vary the delivered dose from 75% to 320% of label claim per actuation. Over or under-delivery of the delivered dose during a single actuation can change the total drug concentration, introduce variability, and impact final results.
The Kinaero™ High-Throughput Fire-Down System is a solution that precisely automates shaking and actuation of up to 10 devices simultaneously, ensuring uniform dose delivery for every shot through the life of the devices.
Provides capacity for 10 devices with full control over all shaking and actuation parameters, including options for position-controlled or force-limited actuation
Electromechanically driven—no need for compressed air or vacuum
Universal cassettes allow for variability in different device dimensions; unique design features offering maximum versatility to accommodate future devices
Fully walkaway operation increases overall throughput and frees up technicians for other tasks
Optional canister cassettes let you test loaded canisters on their own
The Break and Resume functionality allows for method pause to move samples to another test (i.e., DUSA or cascade impaction) during through life testing and then return to waste more shot without ending the method
