ISO 27427:2010 includes gas-powered nebulizers which can be powered by, for example, compressors, pipeline systems, cylinders, etc., and electrically-powered nebulizers [e.g. spinning disc, ultrasonic, vibrating mesh (active and passive) and capillary devices] or manually-powered nebulizers.
ISO 27427:2010 does not apply to devices intended for nasal deposition.
ISO 27427:2010 does not apply to devices intended solely to provide humidification or hydration by providing water in aerosol form.
