ARE Labs can help with your Medical Aerosol Device Testing needs.  Whether your product needs simple particle size testing or something much more complex we can help out.  In our 20+ years of experience in the Aerosol Science field we have built and designed experimental setups to accurately acquire the data that you need.

We specialize in helping out clients with a wide range of services.  We are a complete in-house vertically integrated engineering and cGLP compliant testing facility.  We specialize in Medical Aerosol Delivery Device testing for internal research and development and for FDA and other compliance regulatory testing.  We can test your Aerosol Drug Delivery Devices such as nebulizers, metered dose inhalers, spacers and dry powder inhaler testing.  We can provide a wide array of services to help optimize your device.

We offer  innovative and informative testing setups which utilize Cascade Impaction and TSI APS simultaneously for all trials.  This unique setup offers visualization of the entire treatment cycle and validation of the drug with HPLC.  This breakthrough in advanced testing gives added insight into the drug delivery device performance which no other laboratory offers (to our knowledge).  We are to able show temporal changes in the particle size and delivered aerosol concentration and show the effects that nebulizer cup volume, drug concentration changes and sputtering effects have on the overall delivery.  Using this method we have pinpointed and resolved critical design flaws for our clients that were able to be corrected.  ARE Labs Inc. has many years of experience in medical aerosol device testing with unsurpassed data analysis and engineering solutions for all you needs.

This simultaneous cascade impactor testing coupled with laser diffraction testing is a key benefit that no other testing laboratories can offer.

We are not your typical testing laboratory, we are an engineering company that provides testing, problem identification and problem resolution.
