Advancing OINDP Test Practices East Coast Workshop

Hilton Hotel, Raleigh North Hills, N.C. April 28th, 2022

Advancing OINDP Test Practices East Coast Workshop

Apr 28 2022 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday Hilton Raleigh North Hills Hotel, 3415 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC 27609

Come learn advanced testing tricks and techniques from the experts! MSP, a division of TSI, will be hosting a one day, FREE of charge event for anyone interested in furthering their understanding of current and upcoming trends in OINDP (Orally Inhaled and Nasal Drug Products) testing and analytics.

We are especially looking for scientists, lab managers or technicians who have general familiarity with using the cascade impactors and related hardware, but want to begin to think about the future and how the use of newer techniques can both save both money and time while also provide better methods, and consistent, reliable data that allows for drug development.

Please note that this workshop is provided on a first come, first served basis as space is limited - so register early. The first 20 people to register will receive a special gift!


MSP experts and engineers, as well as a guest speaker from Copley Scientific, will present four sessions throughout the day: AIM Method (Abbreviated Impactor Measurements), IV-IV-c (In Vitro-In Vivo-Correlation), Automation Options, and a hands-on workshop.

Topics Topic Explanation


An overview of the basics of OINDPs testing. A knowledge refresh and gap filler session.

Basic Particle Physics

There are several methods to capture and characterize aerosolized drug products.  This session will cover the basics of these techniques with an emphasis on the cascade impaction, laying the foundation for the rest of the sessions.

Keeping Up With a Changing Regulatory Landscape

Keeping up with changing regulatory landscape is of the utmost importance in the pharmaceutical industry. This session will be dedicated to discussing updates in the regulatory landscape with special attention paid to new chapters that have been added to the USP guidance for inhalation devices.

BKMs for Nasal Testing

The nasal drug product market is currently the focus of considerable research activity. Learn the DDU and APSD testing and equipment requirements.

Variability Reduction & Efficiency Improvement Strategies

The impact of variability is either a failure to achieve mass balance, meaning not all of the dose is sized, or an erroneous APSD, meaning the dose is sized incorrectly. Understand how your product testing can be optimized to reduce the risk of reduction in efficiency and cost to your organization.

Improving IVIVC Techniques

Bridging the gap between in vitro testing and the clinic is key. Find out how to implement IVIVC strategies and equipment in your R&D testing.
