The new Respiratory Technology Lab (RTL) and associated specialist equipment rooms are ready to be commissioned. The main RTL is now complete and has a capacity for 16 personnel with PC2 facilities for particle engineering (e.g. spray-drying, pressurised pMDI filling etc.) in vitro aerosol characterisation and powder/liquid formulation. Additionally, the microscope suite has been completed ready for installation of live-cell and other imaging equipment. The particle size laboratory is commissioned and a Malvern 3000 and Spraytech installed. The thermal analysis suite will be commissioned towards the end of the month along with the HPLC room.
