Led by co-inventor Dr. Olga Kusmartseva the Physics Department participated in the creation of the VariDose system, which enables pharmaceutical companies to quickly and efficiently test a wide range of drug-device combinations.

VariDose enables drug delivery and pharmaceutical companies to quickly, and more efficiently, test a wide range of drug-device combinations at the development stage, without relying on standard inhaler testing methods.

It provides additional valuable information on the detailed characteristics of the particle or droplet cloud emitted by the inhaler and can also be positioned in-line with other measurement devices, a breathing simulator or a patient.

Data from the VariDose technology can assist with improved use of metered dose inhalers and spacers, and should influence future designs of such devices for improved dose control.
