Influence of Humidity on the Electrostatic Charge and Aerosol Performance of Dry Powder Inhaler Carrier based Systems


To investigate the influence of storage relative humidity (RH) on the aerosolisation efficiency and tribo-electrification of carrier based dry powder inhaler (DPI) formulations using the next generation impactor (NGI) in vitro methodology and the electrostatic low pressure impactor (ELPI). Micronised salbutamol (d 0.5 1.48 ± 0.03 μm) was blended with 63–90… (More)
