MSP, a Division of TSI, is excited to announce the release of our NGI+.
Substituting some of the base design materials in the industry-proven NGI, the new NGI+ enables a wider range of applications, chemicals, and drugs. The NGI+ provides more corrosion protection, enhanced chemical and biological resistance, and a longer equipment life expectancy for your inhaler testing process.
Nebulizer solutions have been expected to increase in popularity for some time. And recently, there has been an increased focus on developing inhalation therapeutics for patients with severely limited breathing capacities – something a nebulizer is well suited for.
Additionally, biologics continue to be explored and used by many pharmaceutical delivery mechanisms. The most common use of biologics in inhalation drug delivery is the suspension of live molecules or proteins in a nebulizer solution, due to the solution’s inherent stable properties.
In the past, nebulizers have been difficult to test with standard cascade impactors because of the solutions’ relatively high corrosive saline mixture. However, the NGI+ was designed with materials better suited to withstand this corrosive application and environment – making it an ideal choice for this type of testing.
While drug development companies have made great strides in automating many steps in the particle collection process, impactor and equipment cleaning has been largely ignored. Cleaning the system is typically a very time-consuming process, but it is imperative that it is done precisely to avoid cross-contamination between tests and to help produce more consistent analytics – sample after sample.
The NGI+ was specifically designed to be more corrosion-resistant (while also extending the equipment’s life expectancy). With this enhanced corrosion resistance, harsher chemicals can be used to clean the NGI+ – shortening the typically-lengthy cleaning process. It also enables automated cleaning solutions, saving even more cleaning time.
