USP <610> describes alternate sampling methods for inhalation and nasal products; under the "room temperature method" for high-content INDP it mentions using a ice maker water tap line or other type of needle apparatus to puncture the canister and expel the contents through a line, either into a vessel or directly into the broth/buffer media.

I was curious if anyone knows of any devices available for this specific purpose? We have automatic can cutters but that is an enclosed unit that cuts the entire top of the canister off, so that wouldn't work in this application. I'm looking for something that will allow controlled release of the MDI contents into a vessel.

Thank you,

Nick Sattelberg
