Abstract

See full text

Electrostatic phototechnology is used to package microgram quantities of fine powders such as drugs. An electrostatic 'image' having a given size and charge density is exposed to ionized drug powder to attract a known amount of drug to the image. The resultant drug 'image', is then transferred to a package.
