Dekati® High Resolution ELPI+

The Dekati® High Resolution ELPI+™ (HR-ELPI+™) is a completely new version of the widely used ELPI+™ instrument. The High Resolution ELPI+™ combines features of the ELPI+™ with data inversion algorithm that gives real-time particle number size distribution in up to 500 size classes 6 nm - 10 µm. This makes the High Resolution ELPI+™ a superior tool for detailed particle size distribution analysis in a broad size range that otherwise would need to be covered with two separate instruments. Other High Resolution ELPI+™ features include wide particle sample concentration range, robust structure and possibility to characterise chemical composition of the size classified particles after the real-time measurement. 

High Resolution ELPI+™ features include:

  • Wide particle size range 6 nm - 10 µm with one single instrument
  • Real-time particle number size distribution in up to 500 size classes
  • Possibility  to collect size classified particles for chemical analysis
  • Wide operational concentration range
  • Simple and robust construction
  • Insensitivity to variations in sample pressure
  • Several data saving options including analogue inputs and outputs

  • Automotive Exhaust Measurments
  • Blow-by gas measurements
  • Nanotechnology

Dekati® High Temperature ELPI+™

The Dekati® High Temperature ELPI+­™ (HT-ELPI+™) is a new version of the Dekati® ELPI+™ that enables real-time measurement of particle size distribution from 6 nm up to 10 µm with 10 Hz sampling rate. The High Temperature ELPI+™ allows direct measurement of up to 180 °C aerosol sample without the need to cool the sample, which makes the HT-ELPI+™ a one of a king tool to characterize high temperature aerosols. Additionally, the HT-ELPI+™ has all the benefits of the Dekati® ELPI+™ system including real-time standalone operation, wide sample concentration range, wide particle size range and robust structure for operation even in harsh conditions. The use of impactor technology enables post-measurement chemical analysis of the the size classified particles.

DEKATI® BOLAR™ Bipolar Charge Analyzer

Unique Tool for Medical Inhaler Development

The Dekati® BOLAR™ Bipolar Charge Analyzer is a new tool to support the development of medical inhalers. This sophisticated analyzer has been designed to provide unique information about charged particles for a broad range of medical inhaler devices. Developed with the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry in mind, it can support developments in Dry Powder Inhalers (DPI), Metered Dose Inhalers (MDI) and nebulizers.

The BOLAR™ has been designed and developed in co-operation with a global healthcare company, Tampere University of Technology, Aerosol Physics Laboratory and the Finnish Meteorological Institute. The Dekati® Bipolar Charge Analyzer measures particle bipolar charge size distribution and is the first commercial instrument capable of determining separately positively and negatively charged particles of inhalation aerosols. After the charge measurement, differently charged particles can be dissolved for analysis from the instrument collection tubes enabling determination of charge to mass ratio in different particle size fractions.

Such information is vital for medical inhalers as the charge carried by inhalation aerosols has been found to affect the device performance and lung deposition which, in turn, has a significant impact on the effectiveness of drug inhaled. The positive and negative charge levels can vary significantly between different inhaler devices depending on the materials used in the device, the device design, carrier and drug particles used in the device and operating conditions. Until now, the measurement of size classified bipolar charge levels has not been possible which makes the BOLAR™ a completely unique tool for inhaler device development.
