Options & Functions

Physical testing is beautiful.

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.

Hardness testing is beautiful.

Tablet hardness - sometimes also referred to as tablet breaking force (USP 1217) or resistance to crushing strength (Ph. Eur. 2.9.8) - measures the mechanical integrity of a tablet.

Mini tabs – AT50 tablet hardness tester

Using the universal sample separator with self-adjusting feeder technology, even mini tabs can be reliably tested for weight, thickness, and hardness without changing hardware.

DQD™ – Dynamic calibration for tablet hardness tester

Efficiently calibrate your hardness tester using the Dynamic Qualification Device, DQD™ . With the highly precise DQD™ multiple tablet hardness testers can be adjusted and verified without the need to remove the loadcell from the instrument.
