Copley Scientific forges new relationships in China, supporting the development of inhaled product testing standards

Copley Scientific forges new relationships in ChinaReturning from a successful trip to China, where he was the invited guest of the National Institute for Food and Drug Control (NIFDC)  (the department of the State Food and Drug Adminstration (SFDA) responsible for drug testing)  Mark Copley, Sales Director for Copley Scientific, is enthusiastic about how inhaled product testing is developing in the country and delighted with the response to training sessions that he delivered.

"It was a real privilege to visit both the Shanghai and Beijing branches of the NIFDC and see first hand how China is developing its approach to inhaled product testing and the standards that it will apply," said Mark Copley, "The training we delivered was well-received and discussions about revisions to the Chinese pharmacopoeia were both interesting and productive. As a company we hope to continue to cement relationships with both the regulatory authorities and inhaler manufacturers, assisting  in developing and expanding their knowledge base and testing capabilities"

At both the Bejing and Shanghai branches of the NIFDC, Mark Copley delivered training on delivered dose uniformity testing and the use of cascade impactors, such as the Next Generation Impactor,  which are routinely used to measure the  inhaled product testing. He also met with Dr Huimin Hou, director of the National Pharmaceutical Engineering Research Centre (NPERC) and chair of the pharmacopoeia committee, to discuss how China plans to develop inhaled product testing standards for inclusion in the revised pharmacopoeia, which is scheduled for release in 2015.
