Measuring the physical properties of individual pharmaceutical droplets and their response to changing environments has, until now, been very hard to achieve repeatably. The Aerosol Optical Tweezers (AOT) makes this a routine task with exquisite precision. The AOT captures individual droplets and continuously monitors their physical and chemical properties. For example, measuring the change in size of a droplet as it is exposed to changes in humidity, from ambient to the environment of the lung, is now easy to perform and provides vital information for improving the efficacy of inhalation therapies.
