TASK

Testing inhalers to destruction

Boehringer Ingelheim produces millions of pocket-sized inhalers under the product name “Respimat® Soft Inhaler”. As is the norm in medical technology, the most stringent safety and quality standards apply. This requires extensive testing during production, including process-integrated testing as well as strain, compression and high-pressure testing under cleanroom conditions. These tests are conducted in parallel with ongoing production to provide information about the product quality.
