Physical Testing

Solutions to test the physical properties of tablets, capsules and other solid dosage form. With a proven track record of more than 25'000 testers in the market, SOTAX tablet hardness testers and disintegration testers are known for their reliability, precision and ease of operation. Robust devices for friability testing and for determining powder & granulate characteristics complete the range of solid dosage testers. All instruments can be operated stand-alone and are ready for seamless integration with powerful data management software for consolidated batch reporting in full compliance with 21 CFR part 11 requirements.

Hardness

Hardness

Differently automated multi-parameter tablet hardness testers - from simple manual breakforce testers to automatic testing systems measuring 5 physical parameters (weight, thickness, width, diameter/length, hardness) of solid dosage forms. Fully compliant with international Pharmacopeia, SOTAX hardness & breaking force testers excel with exceptional robustness, precision, and user-friendliness.

Differently automated tablet hardness testers - from manual testers to automated multi-parameter breakforce testers that can be integrated with tablet presses for in-process control (IPC) in pharmaceutical manufacturing.

Disintegration

Disintegration

Modular disintegration testers to accurately determine disintegration times of tablets and capsules. Automated end-point detection ensures maximum repeatability and provides results you can rely on. Available with 1-4 independent stations and automated re-test procedures according to international Pharmacopeia when operated with q-doc® data management software.

Friability

Friability

Robust and easy-to-use friabilator for testing the friability & abrasion of tablets according to USP <1216>, Ph. Eur. 2.9.7 and other harmonized Pharmacopeia. Available with single or dual drums, SOTAX friability testers can be integrated with standard laboratory balances and q-doc® data management software for protocolling each step of the menu-guided test procedure according to FDA data integrity guidelines.

Friabilator for friability testing with 1-2 drums according to Pharmaceopeia.

Tapped Density

Tapped Density

The TD1 tapped density tester combines two different testing methods with different stroke heights as described in USP <616>) and Ph. Eur. 2.9.34. Robust and compact in design, the tester is ideal to determine the tapped density of powders and granulates in your in-process control (IPC) lab during manufacturing. Integrate with a standard balance and q-doc® data management software for advanced protocolling.

Flowability

Flowability

Modular flowability tester to characterize the flow properties of powders and granulates as described in United States Pharmacopeia (USP <1174>) and European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur. 2.9.36). Perform "Flow through an Orifice" tests with cylinder or funnel attachement to measure mass & volume over time - or determine compressability based on "Angle of Repose" type of tests.

Flowability tester for characterization of powders and granulates.

Cap Torque

Cap Torque

The TM200 cap torque tester reliably measures the force required to open or close different types of bottle caps, pump caps, and child-resistant closures. To ensure high precision torque results the motorized tester can be equipped with molded cap adapters specifically designed to individual caps. The proven tester design also allows to execute cap torque tests 100% manually without motorized drive unit.
