Tablet hardness testing (also called breaking force) measures the tablet mechanical integrity.
The tablet breaking force is depending on the tablet geometry. If the tablet shape is not round (e.g. oblong shapes), the user has to carefully place the tablets into the instrument - in a reproducible way!
Understanding this problem, SOTAX has been the first to develop a unique patented system called Auto Alignment™ which will align all your tablets for you with accuracy and reproducibility!
SOTAX Tablet Hardness Testers solve another classic problem faced with tablet hardness testers: some instruments are using a constant loading rate e.g. 20 N per sec or a constant platen movement e.g. 1 mm per sec and therefore a comparison between two units is sometimes difficult. SOTAX instruments can always been parametered in both modes.
The MT allows simple verification of tablet hardness tester functionality - supplier-independent. Click here for more information.
