Research Collaboration: Next Generation Technologies for Improving the Measurement of Pharmaceutical Aerosols

Proveris Scientific Corporation, a leading provider of instrumentation and services to advance the science of aerosol and spray products, today announced its research collaboration with The University of Sydney and Macquarie University on a project to develop a new generation of measurement technologies for improving the measurement of pharmaceutical aerosols.

The project aims to develop an innovative optical tomography technology capable of direct and real-time measurement of the surface area of airborne particles. By coupling advanced laser diagnostic tools with physiological models and in vitro characterization techniques, the research team will investigate critical relationships between the surface area of an aerosol and its dissolution when delivered to a target. The outcomes will enable aerosol device manufacturers to develop and market more advanced and highly specific products.

The concept, originally conceived by Proveris Scientific, is to significantly enhance the characterization of inhaled aerosols with respect to their potential bioavailability or toxicity. Mr. Dino Farina, Partner Investigator, Proveris Scientific Corporation, Professor Hak-Kim Chan, Chief Investigator from the School of Pharmacy at The University of Sydney, and Dr. Agisilaos Kourmatzis, Chief Investigator from the School of Aerospace, Mechanical, and Mechatronic Engineering at The University of Sydney collaborated on a research plan. The multi-year research collaboration is funded by the Australian Research Council Linkage Program which promotes national and international research partnerships between researchers and business, industry, community organizations, and other publicly funded research agencies. As the administering organizing, Professor Chan and Dr. Kourmatzis also invited Dr. Shaokoon Cheng, Chief Investigator, Macquarie University, as a collaborator on the project.

Dr. Kourmatzis commented, “To me, partnering with Proveris means partnering with an organization who understand that engineering innovation, multidisciplinary research, and the highest quality R&D driven by solid science is what leads to positive changes to people’s lives. As an engineer, I am really excited to work on this project and look forward to a deep engagement which can lead to a long-lasting impact on the aerosols industry.”

Professor Hak-Kim Chan stated, “We are really thrilled to have this excellent opportunity  conducting joint R&D with Proveris in developing a novel technology platform that can shift the paradigm in the field. This project marks the beginning of a long-term relationship with Proveris to maximize mutual beneficial outcomes through strategic collaboration.”

Dr Shaokoon Cheng added, “It is really exciting to work with Proveris in developing a device that could transform how things are currently being measured in the pharmaceutical industries. These engagements are critical to improving the efficiency of work processes that I believe will bring enormous economic benefits to companies.”

Dino Farina concluded, “Significantly enhancing comparative in vivo results utilizing predictive in-vitro technologies for inhaled aerosol characterization is a critical need in providing safer and more efficacious drugs to patients worldwide. Having the ability to work with these three top researchers on this new technology is exciting and will result in technology that will advance inhalation science and help make it a more effective route for drug delivery.”
