Malvern Among Industry Specialists at Conference on Nasal Drug Delivery

Dr Paul Kippax, product manager for diffraction systems at Malvern Instruments, will make a presentation on ‘Understanding the robustness of operation of nasal pump spray devices’ at the ‘Nasal Drug Delivery’ annual international conference on 14-15 April 2010 at Le Meridien Hotel, Piccadilly, London. He will discuss the importance of optimising the formulation and device together when developing nasal pump systems, in order to achieve effective and reproducible delivery.

Malvern is committed to understanding and serving the needs of the nasal spray industry and this presentation, which focuses on the use of laser diffraction particle sizing techniques for characterising the spray produced by nasal pump systems, exemplifies the company’s work in this area.

The conference is aimed both at those already involved in nasal drug delivery and those who wish to understand the potential of this therapeutic route. Malvern’s presentation will take place at 09:30 on day two and a full programme can be found at:

In his presentation, Paul Kippax will use research carried out using Malvern’s Spraytec system to show how the time-resolved droplet size data obtained using light scattering techniques can aid understanding of the impact of formulation properties, such as viscosity and device characteristics, on spray atomisation. Spraytec is a laser diffraction particle sizing system specifically designed to address the unique requirements of aerosol and spray droplet characterisation across a wide range of industries and applications. The Spraytec provides in-situ, real-time droplet measurements in a fully validated package, giving accurate, reproducible results.
