The Copley Scientific Andersen Cascade Impactor (ACI) offers a trusted and low-cost method to measure aerodynamic particle size and active pharmaceutical ingredient. This cascade impact system is a direct means to recover and quantify API in an aerosol, rather than less precise formulation, to capture the entire dose for characterization of a formula. The Andersen Cascade Impactor can be arranged with different stages for the particles to pass through that would correspond to where they would likely deposit in the respiratory tract. Each stage of the cascade impactor directs airborne particles drawn through the ACI by a vacuum pump and depending on the aerodynamic diameter the particle will either remain on the stage or, if smaller particles, will continue to pass through to the next stages that decrease in size as they go. At the end of the test, particle mass at each stage is recovered with solvent and analyzed in a HPLC to see how much drug is present. The Copley Scientific Andersen Cascade Impactor (ACI) offers stages between 0.4-9 microns and can be arranged to suit needs such as a reduced stack for nasal aerosol testing, or low flow resistance at high flow rates, while also making removal and replacing stages quick and easy.
