Drug Delivery Automation

Astech is the world leader in automated testing systems for drug delivery devices. We have a comprehensive portfolio of solutions (X-Products®) for the major pharmacopoeia tests encountered in respiratory and parenteral (injectable) dosage forms. We engineer all our systems to the highest quality standards and can be fully validated for EU, US and RoW regulatory requirements. Our systems are modular, scalable and designed to allow incorporation of different drug delivery devices. The solutions we offer have been designed and built for use in both testing laboratories and production environments.
