Automation

The ability to flexibly respond to changes in today`s fast-paced pharmaceutical environment can make the difference between success and failure. Automating your dissolution process increases lab efficiency, improves data quality, and eliminates redundant, error prone tasks in your laboratory.

What do you not want to
automate?

Repeatable operation of simple laborious steps is at the heart of automating your dissolution process. Xtend™ allows flexible automation of all steps from preparing dissolution media to system cleaning. Thanks to its modular design, all Xtend™ components that are in contact with your product are always 100% identical irrespective of your systems`s automation level. 

Manual

Perform all steps of the process manually. In this case every step becomes technician dependent, and the overall process requires significant hand on time.

Semi-Automated

Withdraw samples the same way every time. Automated sampling ensures repeatability and the Xtend design enables close time-points even while pushing through fine filtration and using surfactants. Take full advantage of your semi-automated system by integrating analytics like UV-vis or HPLC/UPLC.

Fully Automated

With full automation the only step a user must perform is to prepare the system for a set of multiple unattended batches. The system will perform the entire test including media degassing, vessel filling, sampling, and the complete system clean-up… 100% unattended.

Integrate Analytical Finish

Offline

Offline

Remain 100 % flexible without dedicating your system to any analytical method. Offline systems automatically collect samples in standardized tubes, vials, or wellplates for manual transfer by the operator to an analytical device. For methods with multiple timepoints, the system can automatically replace withdrawn sample volumes if needed.

UV Online

UV Online

Gather analytical data in real-time and eliminate waiting times by integrating a UV-Vis spectrophotometer into your sampling process. Withdrawn volumes are immediately returned to the vessels – no medium replacement required. Results including protocolled test conditions are readily available in one consolidated report at the end of each test run.

UV On-/Offline

Get the best of both worlds and combine the advantages of UV Online with the flexibility of an Offline system. Perform UV-Vis measuring in real-time and collect samples for more complex analytical methods offline. Add cooling of collected samples if needed and let the system perform medium replacement or pH change automatically.

LC On-/Offline

Collect samples offline – and automatically inject them into an HPLC / UPLC without any manual transfer. The SAM sample manager buffers collected sampling volumes from all vessels and sequentially injects them into your chromatography system. Reduce the time from sampling to analysis to an absolute minimum – particularly for your most critical products.
