Cascade Impaction Tutorial Modules

The following educational videos have been prepared by the IPAC-RS Cascade Impaction Working Group.  This tutorial aims to provide reference information and basic training in good cascade impactor practices, theory and practice of aerodynamic particle size testing of pharmaceutical aerosols, abbreviated impactor measurements (AIM), and efficient data analysis (EDA).  Additional modules are in preparation and will be posted here as soon as available.  If you have any questions or comments, please submit your feedback using the form below. The most frequently asked questions will be addressed in a future update of the tutorial.
